    My main system at home is a custom build:

    Intel Core i7-2600K
    8GB Ram
    2 x 1TB HDDs
    GeForce 560 Ti
    Asus P8P67 Deluxe
    Antec P183
    Windows 8 Pro x64

    I mainly use it for gaming, currently on Hitman Absolution and Assassin's Creed 3 with the occasional F1 2013, F1 Race Stars, FIFA 13 and Need for Speed Most Wanted (Very disappointing compared to the original). Not really an FPS fan and as much as I want to, I just haven't got the time to get in to Football Manager 13 (I'm also waiting for it to go down to £4.99 on Steam! ). The Mrs and kids use it mainly for YouTube videos.

    The PC is connected to a Samsung SyncMaster 2333BW which also doubles up as my main TV as we live in a small flat and is used with our Nintendo Wii.

    Also got an iPad (3rd Gen) and the Mrs has pretty much given up web browsing on the PC instead settling for doing everything on the iPad.

    My house is fully cabled but that is for the TVs and game consoles to pipe media from one place to another, work is not a primary motivator to it.

    1) Some old HP laptop with a knackered screen running Windows 7 Media Center for TV, DVDs, Music etc.

    2) That's it. I leave all tech behind at work. I would much rather read or do some gardening when I'm at home.

    I'm in the leave stuff at work brigade. We have a 5 year old Dell desktop (to be replaced shortly, probably with Win7 all-in-one) with a colour laser, 2 win 7 laptops, an internet radio (that we mostly use on DAB) and assorted iPad/ IPod/iPhones in the house.

    Internet connections are via wifi or Homeplug... ethernet cabling the house tidily would require too much upheaval and I'd never get it past Mr gee40

    I have 3 Shuttle XPCs in the house. The newest is mine, and that's about 3 years old - a Quad-core Q9300 with 4GB RAM. The bootable drive is a 120GB OCZ Vertex SSD. It runs XP Pro. I've got an Athlon64X2 running Win7 Pro (unstable) and a Sempron running XP Pro (semi-stable). Otherwise, a pair of NAS drives, the main one being a Netgear ReadyNas Duo with a pair of 2TB mirrored drives in it.
    And I've got an ancient P4 15" Dell Latitude laptop, which also runs XP, and still works fine.

    Finally got the TV (Panasonic 42" plasma) connected via a Wi-Fi card to the network over the weekend.

    Call myself a geek? Only just, looking at the lack of funky gadgetry in my house.
