Your Gaming Rig
I've noticed we get a fair few people on about building new rigs on here so why not setup a list of peoples specs and photos?
My current setup with a new Graphics card coming soon.
Coolermaster CM690 II with Coolermaster GX 650W PSU,AMD Phenom II 3.2GHz Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition, Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 XMS3, 9800GT 1GB, Asus M4A87TD/USB3 870 Socket AM3 , 2TB Samasung 7200RPM HDDs, Ikea flat pack area.
I use a Emachine E525.
But I upgraded the OS.
Vista basic OEM -> Vista Home Premium -> Ubuntu 10.10 -> Windows 7 Ultimate
@bondbill2k2 - Your rig looks new? Either that or you live in a dust free environment or have a bad case of OCD when it comes to keeping your base unit clean... :)
No photos to hand:
MSI 785G AM2+ motherboard
AMD Athlon X2 4200+
2GB of OCZ DDR2 800
ATI 4850 1GB
All in an Antec Sonata II, viewed on a Samsung 20" TFT. Coping well on Windows 7, but deperately needs a processor upgrade!
Intel i5 2500k
ASUS Sabertooth P67
8GB Corsair XMS3
MSI GTX 560ti Twin Frozr II OC 1GB
Corsair H70 CPU Cooler
120gb Intel X25-M SSD
Corsair HX650W PSU
Corsair Obsidian 650d Case
I've got to do some pics once I've actually tidied the cables up some more, need more cable ties!
Intel Q6600 2.4Ghz Quad Core
6GB Kingston DDR2 800Mhz RAM
MSI 8600GT Graphics (getting upgraded in summer)
3 x Western Digital 500GB SATA2 HDDs
iCute SuperTurbine Case
500Watt Generic PSU
Asus P5N-E Motherboard
I'll get some pics of it running with its shiney blue fan lights, the case needs replaceing now it looks a bit tired and the massive fan on the front and back mean its a ball ache to clean
MacBook Pro 17" C2D 2.1Ghz 2GB RAM. Woo! But then, 'gaming' to me is playing Minecraft, or Anno 1503. That sort of thing.
AMD PHII x4 955 @4Ghz
MSI 790FX Mobo
ATi 5870 @ 1GHz
4Gb OCZ Platinums @ CL7
Corsair X128 SSD
2 x Samsung F3 raid 0
Logitech G500 Mouse
and in a slightly older case
8GB OCZ Platinum DDR2
Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic
Avermedia Twin DVB-T TV Card
Zalman GS-1000+ Case with HotSwap (about to sell this and replace with a Lian-Li A05B - need a case to sit on my shelf above my desk!)
OCZ Vortex 2E 60GB SSD (Boot drive)
Samsung F1 & Samsung F3 1TB Storage drives in RAID0
I have a 2008 Mac Pro with 18gb of RAM, waiting on my SSD Order for a corsair force 3 from scan and I have currently an nvidia 8800GT, not enough ££££ for the ATI 5870, would be nice at some point to get one but for the time being I will be ordering more 2tb + hard drives for storage etc so the graphics card can wait.
