Post your setup

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!

  3. He built his own.
  4. This is my "Browser" pc - secure setup.

    Celeron 733
    448mb pc100 (256+128+64)
    Aopen AX33 pro
    Gigabyte ATI Rage 128

    No name ps2 keyboard.
    Microsoft Intellimouse optical

    Gigatech 21 in one card reader and usb.
    Mitsubishi Diamond View 17"
    Basic ATX case and psu.
    Ubuntu Linux 5.10 (Breezy) Gnome desktop

    No spyware or antivirus software.

    All of the above except keyboard, card reader and WiFi nic leftover from personal and family/friend pc upgrades. Keyboard, WiFi nic and card reader cost $70 Aus.

    (We have 2 other pc's in the house which cost a "little" more than this one)

    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.

    my spare parts rig used to be my gaming rig, but once dual core hit and PCI-ex i thought i better jump on the band wagon so my 2100 just sits there folding hapily all day all night lol. with very high temps(keeps the room at a nice 27degrees!!!, CPU is running just under 60)
  25. 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

    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.

  37. The kid's gaming box:

    DFI Lanparty UT nf4 Ultra/Opteron 146/OCZ Titanium DDR400 2x1GB/GigabyteX1900XT/74GB Raptor/OCZ 520W Modstream/Zalman 7900/TT Tidewater/Antec HD Cooler/LG GSA-H10AK DVD-R/Aerocool Jetmaster JR

    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.

  47. 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?
  48. 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:
