Gaming Machine [Your PC Specs] -Updated-

I've have an Mauchly-Eckert ENIAC, with 17,468 vacuum tubes, 7,200 crystal diodes, 1,500 relays, 70,000 resistors, 10,000 capacitors and around 5 million hand-soldered joints. It consumes 150 kW of power, and has a neat IBM punch card reader.

And this is me, playing tetris.


Woo!.. watch me turn that L shaped thingie around!! :D


My current system is as follows. The CPU is only temporary. I'm waiting for the 65nm FX x2 CPUs to come out. I also plan to change my GPU (or add another of the same) as the next line of GeForce 8 series comes out. I'm still debating whether I want to stripe 3-4 raptors in RAID 5 or get another of the same HDD and stripe that.

CPU: Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Windsor
MB: Gigabyte S5 GA-M59SLI-S5
RAM: Patriot eXtreme 2GB DDR2 800
HDD: 2x WD Caviar SE SATA 250GB (In JABOD for now)
CD/DVD: Samsung 18X Super-WriteMaster
NIC: Gigabyte GN-WP01GS
Case: NZXT Zero


Winfast PX7900GT TDH 256mb
1GB DDR400 ram
2Ghz AMD 64 3000 754S
WD 250GB Sata2 16mb HDD (main)
Maxtor 120GB IDE 8mb HDD (secondary)
20” LG Flatron Wide TFT (main)
17” Vision Master Pro 410 CRT (secondary)

This pretty much runs anything I want it to at 1680x1050; this includes games like Oblivion, Quake 4 and FEAR though as you imagine I have to give up some quality to achieve the res. I hate being on this crummy CPU but I got stuck on it when the socket stopped production, I'd upgrade but with it being a three component purchase “DDR2 ram, motherboard, CPU” it is too expensive for me to do right now.

Mine's horribly outdated.

1.8 GHz AMD Athlon64 Venice, 1 GHz HTT
2 GB PC3200 DDR-SDRAM in dual channel, 2.0-3-2-6-1T timings.
Radeon x550 video (overclocked from 400/550 to 500/667)
Dual Raptor 36.7GB 10,000 RPM HDDs in RAID0
40 GB Maxtor POS
lol, I got my dell for around 700 bucks

I forget the model, but so far it's got:

GeForce 8500 gt? (original graphics were onboard, thus negating any ram i would've added)
3 gigs of ram (had to add 2 gigs myself, might add more)

an already outdated athlon 64 processor

usb gamepad for snes, playstation, n64 and MAME roms
Soundblaster X-Fi soundcard
logitech x-230 speakers (not bad for the 40$ price tag, has nice bass response)
160 gigs of space + 160 more gigs on an external

also this crapheap came with vista and I experienced nothing but trouble from the start with it. Luckily every annoying feature is optional and got it configured in no time.

if I had more money to pour into a computer i'd probably start over with a new tower and just add stuff from there.
You all have some very nice machines here!

Mine was like $179.99 at frys or something. been a great computer, just not so good for gaming. its soon to be replaced or upgraded.

Here are the specs.

Foxxconn or something motherboard "athalon 64 compatable" *shrugs*
256MB of DDR Ram
40GB Hard drive
something horrible graphics card.
AMD sempron processor.



1st (For Printing, casual net use, and uploading stuff to FA)

AMD Athlon 3500+ 64 bit processor
Windows XP Pro
Geforce 7900 Video Card
160 GB Hard Drive

2nd (no frills box used for paypal, music playback and casual internet use and hopefully more stuff when I get more storage space for it)

AMD Sempron 3000+
Ubuntu 7.04
Geforce FX 64 MB Video card
2 Hard Drives 7 GB Total

3rd System (Not connected recently contracted some nasty spyware x.x)

AMD 2000+ Athlon
Windows 2000
256 MB RAM
VIA based video card 8 MB
80 GB Hard Drive (I may move hard drives over)

Don't ask about my collection (I have quite a few) ranging from 8 megs ram to 256, 386 to pentium 3, Windows 3.1 to Windows 98, and a few macs.

I've been building machines constantly for years, but as school approaches, i've had to slow down my works.

BEFORE WE GET STARTED, i would just like to add that there is NOTHING wrong with Windows Vista. On up to date hardware, its a dream. In fact, directx 10 games look fantastic :)

I've included some snaps of the case, and main monitor. 17" wasnt present at the time.

well this is my current rig which is in need of serious updating....actually scratch that i need to do a whole new build but anyway here go the specs.

i've been building systems for other people as well to make some money for my new rig but i always manage to spend it on photgraphy equipment :D (why?! Oh why? Must lens' be so expensive?)

heres my original post in the bits and bytes forum (including pics)

As a side note, windows vista is ok and all....if you don't mind the 70 odd (67 IIRC) data mining services that run wether you like it or not and report you activeities back to microsoft wether you like it or not. of course its all non-identifieable information but ms say that if they have to they'll use it against you (funny, thats got to be hard to do if its un-identifieable information)
Processor: Intel duo core 3.0 GHz 1333 Mhz
Video: Nvidia 8800 GTS 640 Mb
Display: 17" Samsung Syncmaster 171v (a bit old, but i plan on getting a second monitor soon)
320G Hard drive
Windows Vista

And im not entirely sure about the rest

Here are my specs for my Kustom machine.

Western Digital 160GB Hard Drive x2
CD/DVD-RW Drive x2
Pentium4 2.6 GHz Proccessor
PCI nVidia GeForceFX 5500 with 128 MB Onboard
AGP nVidia GeForce 4 with 128 MB Onboard
Linux Ubuntu 7.04, Windows XP 2007 Edition
TrendNET TEW-X (Micro) WLAN Adapter
Demon II ClearCase with Blue LED Fans
Motherboard of Gateway Origin
SoundBlaster Audigy with Adavnced EAX 7.1 Surround Sound
And, the most expensive part of all, 3DS MAX 9 worth $4000
Total Price: $6000


Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40Ghz
Seagate Barracuda 320Gb, WD 80Gb
BFG 8800GTS OC (320Mb)
2Gb Corsair XMS2
OCZ Gamestream 750W
Some Logitech mouse
Dell 17" Monitor
Dell 5.1 Speakers
Integrated audio
Windows Vista Home Premium
The tower cost me a grand, the speakers and monitor were $300 more.


I have a custom build (bit budget) gaming PC, it has ran every game on all settings maxed out (bioshock, UT3, doom 3...you name it...i run it ^^). The only bottleneck is probably my vid card (also winXP cannot use the dx10 support).

- AMD athlon 6000+ 3.0Ghz (analyzes show 3.2Ghz, it comes a bit overclocked stock)
- 2gb ram (analyze shows 2056mb)
- Nvidia 8600GT 256mt
- microATX motherboard
- 500gb hard drive

Each part runs at nice steady temperatures, thought vid card does pick up a bit heat sometimes after running games (goes up to 40-50c) but it is actually quite normal and im yet to see any issues.
