Joe_B_Me's PC Profile

My dad use to work for IBM back in the day (pre Y2K). He would bring home a bunch of older systems for me to play with. My first system was a Compaq 286, go DOS go!. Since then I've gone through countless rigs. My current build was built solely for gaming. I'm currently aiming to upgrade it for a workstation environment for my future career (Civil Engineering).
