Hey FAF!

I'm new to the 'Forums but I thought I'd start getting involved here in the Tech section! I'm a Computer Science student, so along with that beautiful stereotype you can tell I've used a number of computers in my time. My question is, what kind of computer do you use? Go ahead and brag a bit about it if you want, I won't judge.

My custom build:

Intel i3-6100 (3.7 GHz)
16GB DDR4 RAM
WD Black 500GB HDD (performance drive)
Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro x64
+EVGA GeForce GTX 960 coming soon, maybe better (depending on life)

AMD FX-8350 4GHz 8-core
Sabertooth 990FX
250GB Intel SSD for OS/programs
WD Black 2TB, 2TB and 3 TB for all my storage needs(Actually, I am getting short on space...)
Windows 7 Ultimate
Gigabyte AMD R9 390X 512bit 8GB Gaming card
2x HP Compaq LA2405wg (primary and secondary)
1x Dell S2240L (tertiary screen)

Thinking about upgrading with even more HDD's, this time with like 4-5TB. Or get a ton of cheap as hell external HDD's and save EVERYTHING from games to Anime on them.

Where's the overclocks? You can't build a computer like that and leave it standard xD

+1 for AMD though ;)

Half my system was bought for me so it was kind of random, but I have my i5 4690k at 4.66Ghz on air cooling.
2 Radeon HD6950's in Crossfire, both with 6970's shaders unlocked and clocked beyond 6970 specs.
8GB 2400mhz DDR3 at 10-12-12-20, that's from XMP of 2133 11-11-11-30.
I run SSD only. No massive collections of pictures yet for this furry.

Motherboard was bought for me, nothing special, used to have an Intel "Smackover" mobo with tripple channel i7, clocked the shit out of that xD

^ I don't OC because I want my system to last more than 3 years. :p

Besides. I don't need to OC either. These speeds are more than enough at stock speeds.

Back in like 2012/2013 I used 6950's(unlocked and OC'ed to 6970 specs and speeds) to mine Litecoin and Bitcoin. Got me a good $1000 out of it with $700 in total earnings. Feels good, man.

Fair enough haha, not everyone has those sort of specs ;)
I started with only second hand parts and would do crazy shit with overclocks to just pump out usable frame rates. Good old pentium 4's, even the oem hardware would more often than not allow you to modify the clocks. ahh the good old days..

I'm a bit of a performance enthusiast. So I've got an x79 chipset build!

Intel i7-4820k
Asus P9X79 Pro (old but solid AF)
64GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 970

I have 2 SSD set up in RAID 0 (striping) and it's been working great.

Why would you ever need 5 TB on a gaming rig

You have a separate rig for porn?

Bruh I keep my porn, Chinese cartoons and gams all on the same HDD. I often swap it out though so I never have more than 100gb or porn and 400gb of weeaboo trash

A week of backups takes up about half. And about a TB is used just from my terribly managed downloads folder.

But the only real back-up you'd need is of your OS and any legit paid programs like fucking Adobe and shit. Unless you're running a bloody server and managing a fucktonne of client information on your gaming rig as well

Even though everyone just pirates them anyways

My SSDs are pretty full and they are what I back up. It's not really necessary but I do these kinds of things at home to stay sharp.

The lag is often atrocious, but it's impossible to get better speed where I live.

100GB of porn. Too little, mate. You need 400GB+. :p
