Just thought it would be interesting to see what everyone else has for a setup! Not for people to ridicule, just to compare.

I wanted something for both gaming and PVR function. Using some existing parts on hand and some new ones came up with:

Thermaltake Bach Media Case w/VFD display
AMD 3700+ San Diego core (stock speed)
BFG 7800 GT OC
2 GIG Dual Channel PC3200 Ram
2 X 200GB Maxtor H.D.
Evga 133-K8-NF41 SLI motherboard
Sound Blaster Live! Gamer 5.1 soundcard
Logitec 5.1 speakers
32" 16:9 LCD Toshiba T.V. (using DVI connection @ 1080i)
19" Flat Screen CRT secondary monitor
LG DVD Burner
Haugpauge PVR 150 w/MCE remote
Windows XP Media Center 2005
Logitec bluetooth cordless mouse, keyboard & gamepad

I can now sit in my comfy chair and not have to move!

This pc is built to be used purely for web browsing, Linux learning and e-mail. It also sees duty as backup MSN terminal and innocuous games like solitaire.

April 29, 2006 7:17:57 PM

My rig? Its in the process of change, but for the moment:

X-Navigator case
420 wt PSU (soon to be replaced for more power)
ASUS A8N-32-SLI Deluxe (failed and presently on RMA, I'm using my kid's computer for the moment)
X2-4400 CPU
2 gig Corsair XMS ram
7900 GTX 256 (will be replaced, but not sure whether 512 7900 GTX or X1900 XTX yet)
Viewsonic VX924 moniter
1st drive 160 GB Hitachi SATA hardrive
2nd drive 80GB Seagate SATA
1st CD Sony CDRW
2nd CD Sony DWQ-28A Dual format

Klipsch THX 5.1 speakers

Nothing fancy, but it works well enough for me. I'll probably go to a DFI motherboard later, especially if I have any more troubles with the ASUS board.

April 29, 2006 11:15:01 PM

Well, I've been a long-time reader of the forum(z), but I'd never felt a true calling to make my own contributions. Upon seeing this thread, I couldn't help myself any longer -- I simply had to register so I could share my mind-bogglingly-awesome specs with the community. Without further ado, here is my supercomputer (oh, and feel free to laugh me off of the internet):

CPU: 2.0GHz P4 (Northwood, baby!)
Chipset: Intel 845
Memory: 768MB PC133 (SDRAM!)
Hard Drive: 60GB Maxtor 4D060H3
Optical Drives: CD-RW and a Sony DVD-ROM
GPU: ATi Radeon 9600XT 128MB (4 pixel pipelines!)
Sound: AC '97 Audio
Case: The Generic Beige Box (stylish!)
Monitor: 15" Viewsonic VG150
Keyboard: 104 keys!
Headphones: Sony MDR-G52 (most of the foam padding has fallen off...)
Mouse: Razer Copperhead w/ fUnc 1030 sUrface (ok, so I enjoy my Counter-Strike 1.6...)

Jealous much?

P.S. I plan on building a new rig in the mid-May to July time frame, so don't cry for me just yet.

My photo,video and music editing rig is torn apart undergoing big change so till it's more together, I'll hold off spec'ing it. HD space is going way up, and I'm proving how huge an idiot I am by attempting to get an ATI HDTV All In Wonder running on it. See the grip marks on my ankles?

Son #2 now wants a gaming box, so I'm considering which way to go there but if it doesn't compete with the rig listed above, then I'll be a bad man. Birthdays done got expensive, Batman.

Hi Flakes, i just noticed your 3DMark05 score and mine is very close yours :? 8307. Its wierd cause youve got an overall much better rig than me, specially CPU. Whats up that?
May 1, 2006 6:31:43 PM

It`s Because 3DMark 2005 Is Very GPU Limited Program ... The 95% Of Final Score Is For Your Graphic Card , 5% Is For The Rest Of Your System ... But Hey You Got A High Score in 3DMark05 (8307) , I Got 7600 Point :evil:
