I really hate boasting about my computer... :D

MOBO: eVGA nForce 790i Ultra SLi 775 A1 Version
CPU: 1x Intel Core2 Quad @ 2.8GHz (Overclocked)
GPU: 2x eVGA e-GeForce 9800GX2 SSC @ 1MB Each
RAM: 4x 1GB = 4GB (Forgot Brand)
HDD: 4x Western Digital Raptor X's (10,000rpm) @ 150GB Each = 600GB
Keyboard: Logitech G15 (The old version, I didn't like the new one)
Mouse: Lazer Z2 (I never heard of it either, but it's great)
And blue neons everywhere :)

I've got more than that, but I can't be bothered finding out or remembering the details. ;)
Oh, and as for Crysis, I can play on high, but it's still pretty bad FPS (Like 40-50)

PS: This killed my wallet.
PPS: I built it myself. *Sees a part fall off*

Well, that's the problem with the 9800 GX2 in quad SLI though. It doesn't offer much more than 10 to 20% performance over a single 9800 GX2. If even that. Performance stats for it have proven that there's no benefit to having quad SLI with 9800 GX2s yet. And I say this as a person with a 9800 GX2. They just don't scale well at the moment. Maybe in a few driver revisions... =P

Also, it are you running all 4X Raptors in RAID 0? Are you doing it off the motherboard SATA IO controller? If so, you may want to consider investing in a dedicated RAID controller card. You potentially get up to double the IO performance by going to a dedicated RAID card for that many high performance drives, especially given how much you've invested in it.

I use an Areca 1212 card for performance off my HDs, and it's godlike.

Hah, I just have fun with it. :) I'm like a budget shopper... I wait, sneak around for the best deals on hardware than build/upgrade PCs.

I could put together a PC for $1,000 flat that'd eat Crysis alive. And easily so. =P I want to so bad, too, but I've got nobody to sell it to if I made it. Heh heh.

You call 40 frames per second "bad"? Boy, you don't know bad framerates if you're calling that "bad". I tried running Crysis on my computer at the absolute lowet graphics settings, and was getting 17 frames per second max; I was averaging something like 12 or 15. I can run UT3 with minimum graphics at an average of about 27-30fps, which is playable. PC version of Gears of War? Back in the teens, borderline unplayable (I'll grin and bear it for co-op play...sometimes).

If I had money, I'd take you up on that. Alas, I am jobless.

I think it's sexy :3


Seemingly Normal
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate w/ SP1 (32-bit)
Case: Apevia Black X-Cruiser
PSU: Silverstone 750W (Modular)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4 GHz)
Mobo: Asus P5W DH Deluxe
HDD's: Samsung 500GB, Seagate 250GB

Mouse: Logitech MX Revolution
Keyboard: Microsoft Digital Media Pro
Speakers: Logitech Z-5300e 5.1 (THX Certified)
Extra: Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1800, Core 2 Quad Glitter Lamp, Wacom Graphire4

Now that I've listed all of that, I will say that this machine is not for gaming. I'm not even remotely a gamer. I got this so I would be somewhat future-proofed.

And to top it all off, all the chassi fans (and the PSU fan) are blue LED's, so it's all pretty.

So what parts would you put in it?
Intel E8400 or Q6600 (Both are $200)
eVGA 512MB 8800 GTS ($250)
2GB Corsair XMS RAM ($50)
nForce 750i motherboard ($150)

All your primary components bring the total cost up to an average of about $650. You can easily find a decent case, hard drive, DVD ROM/R ($30) and 750 watt PSU ($100+) to handle all of that for under $1,000. It'll run Crysis well on High Detail (keep in mind nothing can run Ultra High well). Oh, and every other single PC game out there.

A 500GB HD is about $100, but most people still don't need that much space, so a good, strong 250 or 320GB drive will do well.

The system will also have plenty of room to grow, and can fit quad-core or graphics updates rather easily. It's also not that expensive of a gaming PC. Couple it with a great 19" widescreen monitor and you'd be good to go.

I've bolted on a few things to my old gaming rig since the last time I've posted it's specs.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300(1.8 GHz) overclocked to 3Ghz
Mobo: MSI P6N SLI Platinum
RAM: 2x1Gb Samsung DDR2 667Mhz
GPU: Radeon 1950PRO (overclocked)
HDD's: WD1200JB 120GB, WD5000ABYS 500GB
PSU: 1000W Chieftec CFT-1000DG (Modular)
Monitor: LG L1900J (19 inch, 4:3)
Mouse: Razer Lachesis
Keyboard: A4Tech Keyworks Office (for the "\" key next to right hand "shift" key)

The recent additions were geared toward two things - safer overclocking and a more silent running in idle mode, since I do not turn my PC off.

Replacing the CPU cooler with Asus Silent Square Pro both made it absolutely silent under zero load and allowed me to safely overclock my the CPU from 1.8Ghz to 3Ghz on air.
Replacing the default PSU with Chieftec's provided sufficient and stable power enough for safer overclocking, and made the PSU run almost totally silent. (yes, I know I will never use an entire 1kW, but there weren't other Chieftec PSUs on sale here, just this unit).
The case is outfitted with 120mm fans everywhere I could find room put them, wired together through a 3'5 floppy drive bay fan speed controller. When gaming, the rig screams with noise and almost literally hovers above the table on a generated air cushion - but when idle, the only thing I can hear are random hard drive seeks.

I would definitely get something more powerful for a video card, but so far ATI has failed to deliver something I would be willing to buy without a second thought.


Razor, a living wrecking ball!
my specs for my current gaming rig:

CPU: 3.2ghz P4 Presscott HT on 800mhz FSB (one of the last socket 478s)
Mobo: ECS PM800 M2 (via chipset)
HD: 80GB WD ATA 133 (who needs a huge drive in a gaming rig?)
PSU: 540W (can't remember what brand, but it's a good one. has 2 fans also)
Ram: 2x 1GB Kingston DDR 400
Graphics: Saphhire Radeon HD2600 Pro AGP 512mb
Sound: onboard AC97' compatable with HRTF virtual surround
(uses calculations to simulate your ear, so instead of a million speakers, you only need two. You only have 2 ears right?)

This rig has served me well, the presscott was a bit of a bother to keep cool, but after alot of the case modifications I managed to get it to run at 60ºC at 100%. I can run the orange box games at 1280x960 with everything on high and 4xAF and 4xAA at a good frame rates and never drop below 40fps.

The most I've had the Presscott up to was 96ºC, at which point the computer was still running as if nothing was wrong. I took one look at the temp monitor and went "HOLY SH@#!!!" and shut it down with the hard switch at the back. Still runs like new and this was 2 years ago, before I upgraded it.
