Intel 965 chipset motherboard
DDR2 SDRAM 667Mz 2 plus 1 total 3 GB
Intel Dual Core
LG DVD writer
nVidia GeForce 8400 GS
80 GB Hitachi hard disk

This machine was working with Windows Vista 64 bit, earlier, which i 
totally formatted and installed Ubuntu Karmac, then upgraded to 10.04 
online through update manager.

only when so many learned people warned me about Windows phishing and 
all, i changed to Ubuntu.

I will be pleased to provide any detail you ask for
