Hey guys,

Noticed this section of our forums is actually quite popular, and being a hardware geek myself I figured we could probably use one of these threads!

Simply put, go ahead and post pictures of your PC/desk setup here.

    This is my gaming room.  I painted the walls and ceiling a dark blue then added a few black lights and glowing stars.

    I have a TV on the wall in case I want to watch the news. My system is a Quad core, 8 gigs of ram, 700 watt power supply, Nvidia GTX 285 card, Xgamer sound card and a 24" monitor.

    My peripherals are: X52 stick/throttle and TrackIR, This pic doesnt show my new G9 mouse and G15 keyboard

     and as soon as i say im surprised it runs them it starts acting up again (computer will reboot itself while im playing usually when something flashy occurs onscreen the developers of the two games ive experienced it on say its cause i need more ram *sigh* honestly i just think i need a new computer if i could just afford one)

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    The AMD Sempron was a powerful single-core back in the days, I myself own one and it runs games pretty good until recently. Iv tried upgrading to a dual-core foolishly buying a dual core thinking it would just work :)  pins are 939s which was discontinued! so now I have to pick up a $60 motherboard and prolly $90 DUO XD

    My current specs

     

    AMD Sempron

    Nvidia Geforce 9400

    2GBs of ram

    Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64

     yeah same here about the running games well till recently ....i mean i occasionally had to turn graphics down slightly on some games because of my low ram (it plays champions surpriseingly well on fairly good settings) but suddenly its like i hit a brick wall...a brick wall topped with razor wire and anti-personel turrets lol. Now most newer games i have to run at like half their max settings or i get problems like extreme slowdown choppy picture and torn graphics and in some cases my computer will crash and reboot itself. Woe is me :P   i hope i can get one of the kits i mentioned before but if i cant i hope to at least add another gig of ram so it'll run smoother on Campions at least.

    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T

    Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 AM2+/AM2

    Gigabyte ATI Radeon 4850 512 MB

    5.5GB DDR2 PC6400 800Mhz Ram

    This computer is about 2 years old, but i upgraded the cpu recently

    I would just like to point out its an AM2+/AM3 motherboard image - and nice rig!

     

    My slightly outdated "Jimathy" (or so i called him) is:

    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 currently running at the standerd clock of 2.5Ghz  but i often run it at 3Ghz+ (Running on a P45 chip with 8-Pin (2x4) Connector so it is easily overclockable).

    Cooling: Corsair H50

    RAM: 4GB DDR2 Single Channel RAM at 800MHz

    Graphics Card:  Palit nVidia GTS250 1Gb/1024Mb - E-Green edition due to the fact that at the time my power supply had no 6-Pin connectors and only 2 Molex connectors.

    Standard clock 675/900/1458 however i usually run it at 787/1066/1721 boosting Windows rating of both 3D Performance and Windows Aero Performance to 7.0 with it's 68.2Gb/s Transfer Rate and 50.4 GTexel/s Texture Fillrate - which i aknowledge is way lower than the standerd edition of the model and other graphics cards.

    Hard Drives: Western Digital 500GB  Caviar Blue 16Mb Cache and 7200RPM  SATA drive and external 160Gb and a 250Gb Buffalo MiniStations running at 5400RPM through a 2.0 USB port which i use to backup files from home, from school and for friends when i need  to reinstall their PCs image

    Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro Turbo

    PSU: OCZ  Z-Series 650W

    Case: Antec VSK 2000 Case

    Monitor: Acer AL1717 (which im saving up and looking forward to replacing with an Acer GD245HQ 24" 120Hz 3D Compatible) and i have a 32' AcousticSolutions TV that supports 1080p and 1080i.

    Mouse and Keyboard: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 with the BlueTrack mouse - which does the trick when i switch between displays and makes multi-tasking easier.

    Sound/Audio: Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound speakers (70 RMS and 140 Peak Power) which blast out amazing music with deep base and awesome gameing sound when positioned properly thats blasts out through my onboard 8 Channel Sound card.

    Internet: UK TalkTalk 24Mb with Unlimited Download usage - actual received speed is at the bottom on my signature

    Accessories: A mug warmer which damn helps throughout the day and night keeping my coffee warm when gaming image

    Screenshot:

    Dxdiag1

    Dxdiag2

    WinRating

    Gpu-Z

    Pictures: I have not taken any since i dont have no flashing neon lights due to the fact that they generate light which prevents me from sleeping at night and generate a bit of heat which i dont really need either. However upon request i can take a pic of the whole set and the one of the PC from the inside.
