ASUS A8V-E SE motherboard
1024 MB RAM (not sure what make) (gentoo worked fine on this system)
160G SATA Drive (for linux)
Monitor I'm not sure .. it's branded as a Mecer H113 which I know is a 
South African specific brand
I'll have a look later on what the serial on the back brings up on 
google ...

I'll reinstall again and boot into single user mode and grab all the 
relevant information I can find ..and send it as well.
