Asus P7P55D Evo Extreme
16GB Kingston HyperX T1 DDR3-2133 with with after market cooler

Watercooled Asus M2n Sli Deluxe
8gb Corsair XMS2 800mhz
2x 8800GT Sli - Watercooled
4x250gb WB hard drives
Lian Li PC2010 with lazer cut side panels
Logitech G15 + G9 + G51 Speakers...
i used to game alot but now ive moved over to the good old Xbox
Mix of old and new-skool for me:
AMD Athlon X2 4000+ (needs upgrading!)
ECS KA3-MVP motherboard
500GB Samsung HDD
ATI 4850 1GB
2GB DDR2 800
Antec Sonata II with 550w PSU
Auzentech X-Plosion sound card (awesome piece of kit, DD Live etc)
Samsung SM-2023BW monitor
Saitek Eclipse + Logitech MX-1000
Built for FPS games, HL2 mainly. Windows 7 sitting here waiting to go on it.
Just built my PC a couple of weekends ago, decided that as a network manager having a 5 year old home PC was just a disgrace
Built to a budget else I'd have gone for i5 or i7, but platform costs are too much still, so I have:
Phenom II X4 965 plugged into an
Asus M4A79XTD Evo motherboard with
2x2GB Corsair XMS3 1333 9-9-9-24 DDR3 RAM next to an
XFX Radeon 5770 1Gb @ 900/1400 playing games that run on a
WD Caviar Black 640GB all snuggled into a
Silverstone Temjin TJ06 holding an
Antec Earthwatts 750W Modular PSU
Windows 7 score turns out at 7.4 for all the parts (7.5 RAM) barring the HDD (@5.9, everyone's problem now?). Futuremark Vantage score was in the 9000's somewhere.
Going to XFire another 5770 in a year or so's time when I have money again, hence the size of the PSU. That's also why it seems so unbalanced with CPU/GPU at the moment, I was going to get an X3 720 but they're going EOL everywhere and getting hold of them is a PITA.
I do love it so much not the greatest PC ever, but for £640 it's a beauty. DiRT2 was running at top specs at 1680x1050 at 40-something FPS, and the Stalker Benchmark gives me silly numbers. Having upgraded from an old AMD64 @ 2GHz with an AGP 7300GT I'm very much appreciating the upgrade.
...however, part of me still longs for that Amiga 500. Probably the defining moment of my life, getting that machine, I wouldn't know most the stuff I know about computers now if I hadn't played with it so much as a child. Doubt I'd be doing this job and posting on this forum if not for that little beige beauty.
