GPU: 2 x gtx 295
RAM: 4gb ddr3
OS: Windows 7
Built 4 years ago. Almost time to build a new one.
My theme song.
CPU: AMD Phenom II 980 [Black] (quad core)
GPU: 6950 HD AMD [1gb] (Gigabyte)
Motherboard: 970A-UD3 (Gigabyte)
Memory: 16 gigs of ddr3 1600mhz
I don't have a cd or dvd drive. I install everything via usb. I was thinking about getting a laptop just in case I had something on a CD I needed to get.
HDD: I have a 500g western digital, and a 60gb SSD (corsair). The last SSD I had failed in about 8 months, but the seagate baraccuda I bought lasted about 4 years. That's unheard of. It actually wasn't bad at all. I just replaced it because I didn't want to deal with having to replace it later. Instead of jumping on the terabyte bandwagon, I am going to stick with lower storage space for now. When I get the money, I am going to get a storage server for my house. From there I can store all my crap, and run websites and ventrilo / mumble servers from there.
I run x2 asus monitors at 1920x1080. Two is great, but three is best. I only have one graphics card though, and I didn't want to stress my card with a x3 setup.
Just built this from an old HP desktop the only things i kept were the23" screen, HDD and the keyboard

Now that you mention it, there is a definite resemblance to the Dragon Rider case. Yours looks cooler than a standard Dragon Rider case, though.
Built a new system for my wife's Creative Suite/Photoshop hobby. Originally we were going to forgo any real gaming capability but in the end we decided if we were going to build a new system we might as well do it proper. The case was chosen because my wife wishes to paint it at a later date and thus a "blank canvas" was important. Anyway here it is:
Mobo: Gigabyte Z77 Sniper-1 M3 (mATX)
CPU: Intel i5-3570K
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master EVO 212
RAM: 16Gb DDR3 1600 Mhz Corsair Vengence Low Profile
GPU: Asus GTX 680 2GB DirectCU II OC edition (chosen over AMD 7970 GHz because temps/acoustics/power matters to us)
PSU: Seasonic M12 II 80 Bronze 620 Watt
SSD: Samsung 830 Sata 3 128GB
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB
Case: Silverstone Precision Series 07 White
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate (already owned retail version, planning on upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate)
My Silverstone FT-02 system vs the new Silverstone PS-07 build:
Intel i7 2700k @ 4.5ghz
2 x ATI 6850s
OS on 128gb SSD
1TB storage drive
Win 7 x64
32" Samsung 5 series TV 5ms i believe it was, 22" LG flatron 5ms and then my little laptop for browsing when playing games lol oh and i almost forgot the HP g3 server..
No comment on mine ?
Originally posted by Quizzical You should be warned that Vista will mishandle SSDs. I don't recall the details off hand, but if the upgrade to a newer version of Windows isn't coming soon, you might want to read up on it.
Looked around a bit and while there were various things listed this topic seemed to be the most common...
Is what you are referring to and if not could you elaborate a bit so I can narrow my search? The reason I ask is because at this point if there isn't a NEED to pay for the upgrade my wife and I are perfectly fine with the perfomance she has under Vista. We can of course upgrade as originally intended but unless there is a specific reason (currently, not something which has since been addressed and remedied) I don't see us throwing away money for little gain over a perfomance level we are happy with.
Its a tangle of wires but thats cuz I lug it around every week and I got sick of cleaning up the wires after the 4th week lol.
That is in fact the dinner table and that couch is my bed o.o

Props on the wolfking warrior pad. When I heard they were going out of business I bought 20 of the wolfking timberwolf keyboards and 10 warrior pads lol. Such a perfect design for gaming and no one else seems willing to do it.
Pair it with a razer Naga and man is it a sweet setup lol.
