I'm curious what kinda rigs PC'ers are gonna be playing on, and what upgrades you have planned in the near future. My pc will be hitting 2 years old this summer.

Fractal Design r3 case
8 GB Memory
2 128 SSD hardrives
1 TB hardrive
2 GTX 460 SE in SLI
750W Corsair PSU
ASUS P8Z68-V LGA 1155 Intel Motherboard
i5-2500K CPU
Fractal Design Adjust 108 fan controller
ASUS 27" LED monitor
ASUS ZONAR 7.1 souncard
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 CPU cooler

Accessories:
Corsair Primal Gaming Headset
RAZER DeathAdder Precision Optical Gaming Mouse
Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard
Razer Vespula Dual-Sided Gaming Mouse Mat
Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Speakers

As far as upgrades, the only thing I'm thinking about upgrading at the point is my video card(s). Thinking of getting a 660ti to replace both my 460 SE's, but haven't decided for sure yet. I'll post a couple pics when i get home tonight.

Lol, Yeah it's pretty fun playing games on it. I have been really enjoying the new Arma 3 alpha on it manly because it's a mil sim on a big screen, battles and flying looks amazing.

-Cooler Master HAF-932 Full Tower. (Fairly common, but does the job very well. Room for _any_ mobo and cards I could ever throw at it.)

-Stock fans, sans two Scythe Gentle Typhoon T-15s.

-ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 Motherboard

-I7 2600K OC'd to 4.8 GHZ Could probably OC more since I got a very good chip, but I don't want to push it beyond 1.4 volts to get it stable. Plus with all my DIMMS maxed out it's very difficult to get stable over 4.8

-Corsair H100 CPU cooler. Stock fans replaced with TP-15 Gentle Typhoons since the stock fans were loud as sin and always ran on max RPM. (Whether I put them in the Corsair controller or my AeroCool2000 controller made no difference.)

-Single GTX580 3GB, waiting on 700 or 800 series until I change it. Gets a bit loud/hot.

-32GB RipJawz DDR3 Ram @2133/ (4x 8GB sticks.) Pointless, I know.

-Idles around 25 C, 64-68 under load.

-Guarded by Optimus Prime.

-Default keyboard, mouse, speakers and SP2008WFP monitor from my Dell XPS 730 (From 3-4 years ago lol)

-Have crappy dell default speakers, but I just use Sennheiser PC 350's.

-Soundblaster card I cannibalized from my Dell since the mobo audio only goes so loud with headphones. You can really crank it up with the card, although it's a pain since the bracket was designed for the XPS730 case. I had to take it off to fit it in an ATX case and it's not completely secured. Same with the Wireless-N card which is a real PITA and comes loose very easily.

-1TB something or other hard drive I cannibalized from my Dell. I should really get a SSD.

Damn, you beat me by 28" on your screen! I sometimes hook up mine to our Mit 92". But I do mock 3d on it from non 3d sources sometimes. Kinda trippy playing some games in alphas and betas...

Rig tho fairly older Still DDR2 :(

Raidmax Dirk-Tooth Case
8 gigs mem
1 256 GB ssd and 1 500gb HD
560TI
850 Etasis PSU
Asus M3A79-T Deluxe
AMD PhenomX-4 9950 BE CPU
Old *** SB audigy 2 Platinum (woot)

logitech G540 Kb and G700 gaming mouse
Display well, as seen above sometimes to the 92" DLP or to a 23" HP HD monitor


Some stuff is older on this rig, but I can play Alpha and Beta max setting without any issues, except durring massive arkfalls. And thats even not too bad really.

What is with you people and 32 gb of memory? Lol. But I'll post my specs when I get on my computer later this evening. Just to make sure I can run this game nice and graphic rendered I went out and bought an XFX HD 7770 Core Edition 1gb DDR5 graphics card haha.

Future proofing i guess.

Heh I have 32 gigs of ram myself but the pc I happen to game on is also a workstation that I use to render animations and the likes.

I'd post the specs but I am around 1500 miles away from said PC currently xD.

Future proofing i guess.

In hindsight I wish I just got two 8 GB @2133 sticks instead of four. Pretty pricey, and I could have used the extra cash for a monitor/keyboard/mouse/very large cake.

Plus with only two sticks in (giggity) I can push the processor to 5.0ghz fairly easily. Granted I can still do that, but I figure why sacrifice an extra 16gb ram for a .2 ghz overclock difference.

It was definitely a waste of money, but at this point not using the RAM I have available would be a bigger waste.

Also that. ........... Awww maaaaan....... Well there's always next time. >_> This was my first build so live and learn I suppose. Like I said though at least I can run a crap load of movies at once and edit movies to my heart's content. Too bad I don't really care to do either one. xD

I won't go through an upgrade binge for at least another year or so. Hopefully my monitor can live off life support until then. I'm still reeling from when I bought the processor+ram+mobo+video card+tower+power supply all at the same time. (And that was roughly a year ago.)

i7 2700k @ 4.5 ghz (safe n stable) (30c idle and 55c average operateing temp)
corsair vengence 16GB ddr3 ram
gigabyte Z68AP-D3 version 2 mobo
MSI GTX 670 Power Edition with twin frozor cooling
1000W PSU 80+ rateing
Antec 900 Case (4x 120MM case fans 1x 200MM case fan)
cooler master hyper 212 cpu cooler
Western Digital black caviler 1TB HDD
samsun 23inch widescreen LED HDMI moniter

razer naga molten mouse
cyborg keyboard with backlit keys

i can play any game i want at very high graphic lvls

lets face it having 16x AA and max MSAA with shadows and smoke effts on ultra only eats up frame rates. having those fetures set to medium (smoke and shadows etc) still looks amazing and i found 8x AA is nice enough :D.

how ever from what i sae with defiance having it set to max wont be an issue :D

I feel you there... mine blew up too... but it's amazing what a few pounds worth of duct tape and paper-clips can do. I'm like Macgyver on machines... so what if I'm sitting here shouting bells and whistles into a tin can on a string... whoops, just a second, time for another server-hop... "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP doot!"... all set! :cool:

In august of 2011 I was awarded 70% disability from the Veterans Administration; while that's not a lot, the back pay was $11k so I was able to buy some nice stuff for myself. Here is the system I put together in October of that year (and some more recent additions):

Corsair 600T SE white case
Asus P67 Sabertooth mobo
Intel i7-2600K cpu
Corsair H60 cpu cooler
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 RAM
NZXT Hale90 V2 1000w psu (new, not yet installed); it's white with black accents like my case (which has the window)
MSI Twinfrzr II Radeon 6950 2GB
(2) Hitachi sata III 2TB 7200rpm hard drives (1 is from previous system but still works without a fault)
Bitfenix Recon touch fan controller (a bright white controls)
NZXT 5.25" Aperature M card reader/usb 3.0 hub (I'll install it when I install new psu)
LG Blu-Ray burner

(4) Xigmatek crystal white led 120mm fans:
push/pull on cooler on back fan placement/ 2 top exhast
stock front 240mm intake fan

Peripherals:

(3) Acer 24" full hd monitors in eyefinity setup: 5760x1080 resolution
Corsair Vengeance K90 keyboard (blue backlit unfortunately but they now have the K95 with white backlighting)
Corsair Vengeance M90 mouse
Corsair Vengeance 2000 headset
Canon MX 882 all-in-one printer

2 desks with full width slide out keyboard drawers which are nice as they put BOTH the keyboard and mouse at exactly the hight of my chair's armrest and accommodates my Razer Goliathus extended mouse pad which is just over 36" wide

I rarely go anywhere except grocery shopping so I have no need for a cellphone or camera but some time in the next week I'll be installing the psu and card reader and using canned air on the radiator; when I do I'll ask my roommate to take some pictures so I can post them.

here's a couple screens from sketchup, I modelled all the furniture and the keyboard (and of course all the room and its details) but all the items I added from 3D warehouse.

Here's a picture, I have others but this should do. I don't have much lighting in my room so they flash went off and washed out the monitors; didn't realize until I returned the borrowed camera.
