I might be alone in this but anyone else here into computers? I mean obviously you all USE computers haha but I mean building/upgrading/modding computers.

I've personally built all 4 computers at my house and love tinkering with em :3

For you other computer geeks, (and even for you non-computer geek folks) throw your rig up here, let's see if our fellow otaku have some killer gaming rigs.



Use this format.

Processor (CPU):
Motherboard(if known):
Graphics Card(s)(GPU):
Memory(Ram):
Case:
Power Supply(PSU):
Hard Drives(HDD):

I'll post mine up later

Motherboard: Lol I honestly dont know.
Graphics Card:NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with up to 256MB DDR3 memory and NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor
RAM: DDR3 SDRAM 4GB DDR3 SDRAM expandable to 8GB

Guess I'll post mine now :3

Custom built full tower desktop, top of the line about 4 1/2 years ago, starting to show it's age now

Processor (CPU): AMD Athlon 4000+ Socket 939 single core overclocked to 2.9Ghz (from 2.4) With a Xigmatek HDT S1283 Heatsink
Motherboard(if known): EVGA nForce4 SLi
Graphics Card(s)(GPU): ATI Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition 256mb GDDR3 (cost about $280 new 5 years ago)
Memory(Ram): 2gbs G-Skill DDR-400 OC'ed to 500MHz
Case:Antec Twelve Hundred Full Tower
Power Supply(PSU): Antec Earthwatts 650 watt
Hard Drives(HDD): 2x Western Digital 500gb sata drives 2x Western Digital 320gb HDDs (1 sata 1 eide) 1x Maxtor 200gb sata HDD, 1x Western Digital 160gb sata HDD for 2tb total hard drive space.

It's also currently hooked up to a pair of 21 inch engineering grade CRT monitors (the BIG old ones <3 ) running 2048x1536 and 1600x1200 resolution ( better than 1080p high def Razz )
Add my 280 watt 5:1 surround speakers to the massive storage space and beast res monitors and despite a somewhat dated GPD/CPU combo you have one bad ass multimedia rig (I can still add 3 more hard drives in my case btw, I'd just need to get another raid controller card since I'm out of sata ports on my board and the 2-slot raid card I have in there XD )

All this talk of laptops lol, I've only ever owned the largest and most un-portable of computer systems lol, Full Tower desktops with big CRT monitors <3 (full tower = 12 drive bays)

I swear my last two towers weighed over 50 pounds fully loaded haha

Whee~ Just upgraded to a pair of Asus GeForce 9600 GSO's gonna have to wait till next paycheck to SLi these bad boys since they didn't come with an SLi bridge, but hey, they only $35 after mail in rebate, not bad for something that can be soft modded and overclocked up to the specs of a 9800 GT haha.

They do seem run a bit hotter than my old X850 but I think that's just the nature of the beast with newer graphics cards as my buddies 8600 GTS's run pretty hot too, but I think 2 120mm intake fans a 120mm exhaust fan and a 90 cfm pci slot blower should be able to take care of the heat =]
