The first home computer (that wasn't like a commodore 64) I ever had was a Windows 3.0 system, running on a 486 system.It was very ground breaking for us!!

Choose well and you can have good, fast, fairly recent computer stuff for cheap. I just put together a quad-core Q6600 system with a capable (but not cutting edge) Geforce card for under $350. Used an old drive and a copy of XP that was laying around. Encodes video like a demon - WAY faster than the old 3ghz single-core CPU boxes I have. Maybe four times faster.
