    500gb Samsung 850 EVO SSD (storage)

    I had a lot of fun putting this together.

    Quinnn Do my stripes make me look fat?

    Thanks! You'd be surprised how relatively inexpensive it was. I bought everything used, second hand, or on clearance (except the case).

    lolcox I'm all about that Dogecoin, No PayPal.

    This is my desk before the move to Oregon.
    I've got too much clutter on my desk right now that I need to sort before I can take a current photo that includes display 3.

    Since the move, the only changes inside the case are two fewer hard drives (to be fixed soon, with two new drives sitting on my desk waiting for install), and a move to Windows 10.
    GPU temps are currently high because I'm mining. Might as well make a few cents off reading the forums, eh?

    850w psu (i think :x)
    Intel something something motherboard... It's old but was top end in around 2009

    Btw 70% of those parts i didnt buy. Due to it all being used parts handed to me. Having family who are programmers has some perks... But not when you realise you know nothing. And all your actions online CAN be found if they wanted to snoop about. So that's a negative :D

    Ye old cork board desktop tower... That's what i use for testing any faulty hardware :3 usually old ssd which have been found to be faulty. The company ordered over 800 Kensington ssd. After a couple years most became garbage :/ wasn't even so much of a job to me. Messing around with different hardware, diagnosing issues. Was fun!

    HTPC / NAS
    OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    Monitor: 50" 1080p HDTV
    KB & Mouse: none, accessible via VNC, SSH, WebUI, MCE Remote, and my Android Phone.

    HDD2: 1TB 3.5" Seagate 7200RPM 32Meg cache Sata II 3Gb/s
    Note: additional storage will probably required soon. Would like to eventually get a proper set of three 4TB+ drives to put in Raid 5, but it isn't really needed atm

    Main Rig
    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
    Monitor: 24" 16:9 ASUS VW246h (I miss having 3 of them)
    KB/Mouse: CoolerMaster Storm Devastator Red Backlit Combo

    HDD2: 250Gb Seagate 7200 RPM 16M cache (VM Storage for two debian VM's, kali, xp, ubunutu, and slackware)
    Note: in the process of slowly upgrading this machine, just upgraded the Case and Cooler, plan to replace the cpu, ram at some point after AMD's new line hits, which may require also require a mobo upgrade. A GPU upgrade is needed as well, but again, this is waiting until after nVidia drops their Pascal line due out later this year. Cooling was my immediate concern with my stock cpu fan slowly dying.

    B!%#* Box

    GPU: MSI ATI Radeon HD 5570 1Gb
    HDD0: 250 Gig WesternDigital 7200 RPM Sata II 3Gb/s
    HDD1: 160 Gig something or other salvaged from an old HP with windows 7 slapped on it for a friend.
    note: while generally used for transcoding, rendering, compiling large chunks of code, and cpu intensive things that i don't want to bog down my main rig with when i'm busy gaming or heavily multi-tasking- this machine is currently out on loan to a friend in need.

    So sue me, I'm a nerd. Anything marked with * is slated for replacement/upgrade as funds are available to dump into my obsession.

    I have now is a dinosaure.

    A Intel Celeron D. 80 gig or HD, 1.5 gig of RAM, Win XP

    My computer die on me June 11 :(, the mother board die and did not go to the bios to load.

    I was having problem with the com, but did not know what was it, then my second HD was no longer show. I manage to backup my book mark and my furry folder on a USB key. I try to reboot, but the computer stop. No bip, no video signal, nothing.

    I remove the video card and plug the monitor direct on the mother board, no signal. I remove 3 of the 4 gig of ram, no signal. I remove the HD no signal.

    The ram are ok, the HD seem ok since when I boot I can feel it.

    So its the motherboard that die :(

    It was a AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor 4200+ 2.20Ghz with 4 gig of RAM 64bits win 7 HD 500 Gig and 200 Gig. Video card of 1 gig.

    This week I will see how it turn out. It need a power supply, a battery for the motherboard, a HD to install the OS, I still got 2 gig of ram, still got my video card and the old HDs. Don't know if the motherboard is good or not.

    If not I will have to wait and see in august due to a problem with the landlord.
