The old "post your computer specs" thread is.. old (almost 2 years dead), so I'm posting one that's more open, not old and dead, and visual (showcase).

Post pictures of your current gaming rig here and info about it. You may include consoles IF you have done some modding.

Here's my second build. Outdated picture and blurry camera. Very Happy

Games? I only do video ripping and photo editing with my desktop. I think my sound card is like 7 or 8 years old now, probably older and I don't do a super hardcore video card either. I've been piece-mealing for years, though I usually replace the case any time I have to swap boards.


GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X6 Six-Core Processor 1090T (3.2GHz) AM3, HDT90ZFBGRBOX (Black Edition) overclocked to 3.79 ghz
G.SKILL 4GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50 Liquid Cooler
Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply
RAID 0, 2 x WD VelociRaptor 300GB 10k rpm SATA drives
RAID 0, 4 x WD Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 rpm drives
Galaxy GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card

I'm waiting on the next gen i7's with the hex core, preferably octo core before I upgrade again. A SSD RAID setup will definitely come next time, but I'm still waiting for 250+ GB prices to come down more, though the 500+ MB transfer speeds definitely help.

Oh, and I run dual 23" 1680x1050 screens with this setup. I need a bigger desk before so I can go to 27" 2560x1440 screens. Confused

Here's a build I did the other night for a friend.

He had the Motherboard and CPU already.

Motherboard: nforce 790i ultra sli

Cpu: Q6700

Antec p280 Case

Cosair 256gig SSD

CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB)-DDR3

EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 560

Thermaltake 850watt power supply.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I only had one cable I couldn't tuck. (too short)

This is a VERY solid and quiet case.
