I've just taken some pics of my gaming rig with my new 5 Mpix camera and thought I would share them here. I will have had my PC for 3 years in february. It has seen a few upgrades over this time, but it is still an old S939 / DX9 build, and probably one of the best around XD. Heres the pics, specs are in my sig.

The 3 front speakers are behind the Curtains, the side ones I have on my walls :)

Yea originally it had a 3000+, Asus A8N-SLI which kind of blew / buggered up, a 6800, onboard sound and budget ram. Im tempted to give it a Q6600 and 3870 XT upgrade, but I dont need to yet. I'll try and resist upgerading for 6-12 months, but believe me resisting it is sooo hard lol :p 

I want upgrades all the time :(

I am continually wanting to scrap my old celeron @ 2.2 and build a C2D.
It is so hard to resist the urge.

I agree that you compy is still great my system isn't even a year old and its getting its butt kicked in newer games but it doesn't matter to me I play at 1024x768 with out AA and online i turn the the settings to make sure i get the best fps possible

i guess its pointless upgrading the pc-everytime a new game /video card is let loose in the market -u feel cheated and then u feel sad about how underpowered ur 2 month old hardware is --its best to move on to consoles-the amount i paid for getting my 8800gt card-so that i could play crysis at max settings on my modest 17 inch monitor seems like a waste unless ea/crytek and nvidia do something about it @ 1024x768 without AF and most things set @ high i get about 35-40fps-could've bought a ps3/xbox360 for the same amount.

yeah thats true i mean i got my card last year and its super crap now but fps is my concern not quality and i can live with turning down the settings to play so im going to ride out my card until a game doesn't support it any more then get a high end card. That shoul be in about 3 years untill then i have my 360 ;)
