So here goes

486DX33 --> 486 DX4-100 --> Pentium Overdrive --> Pentium 166 --> Pentium 200 --> PII 333 ---> PIII 750 --> PIII 1Ghz ---> P4 2.66 --> P4 3.0 HT --> X2 4800+ --> Q6600 --> Q6700 (current)

with each platform change came the associated Motherboard and RAM change

Thats going back from the early 1990s to present day

P200 with MMX (F-yeah, MMX baby - that really made all the difference), P3 900, P4c 2.4 @ 2.8Ghz, Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 3.04Ghz.

Prior to that I had used 386's and 486 at school but at home I had an Amgia 1200 (I upgraded this so I had two floppy disk drives, very handy for playing Monkey Island 2 and it's 12 discs!) and before that an Atari 500 ST.

8080A --> 80186 --> 68030, 80286 --> Pentium --> Pentium II --> Pentium III --> Pentium m --> Pentium D 830 --> Pentium D 940

D955XBK constrains the CPU choices, unfortunately. Next will probably be an E6750.

Not in strict order because there were overlaps and/or multiple systems, but I remember having owned and used:
6502, 8088, 80286/8, 80286/12, 80386/dx25, 80386/sx33, 80386/dx40, 80486/sx25, 80486/dx33, 80486/dx2-66, 80486/dx4-100, Cyrix P166+, AMD K6/2-450, another of those maybe faster, PIII/933, Celeron/400, AMD 2200+, 2 with a 2.4 GHz P4, AMD 3200+, AMD X2-3800+, e6750. The Celeron was a laptop, as was one of the 2.4GHz P4s. I've got a Core Duo now too, forget the model. This doesn't include systems I've built for others, or built for my own use at work, but some of these I used for a while and then gave away or sold.

Gotta love all these people that started with a vic 20 or C64. Or better yet, an old commodore Pet. Mine eventually died from the chip creep problems. But, it was awesome being able to put several good games on 1 small KBwise 5 1/4 floppy disk. I remember playing Spitfire and Battle for Britain on mine back in the day.
