Hello there,

So I'm new to the forums and have been looking around and nobody has made a thread on their own personal rigs. So I wanted to start one, all you need to do is have a format like this.

CPU:
Motherboard:
RAM:
Graphics Card:
Power Supply:
Any Other comments:

So I should probably start us all off!

CPU: Intel 2600k Overclocked to 5.1 Ghz
Motherboard: AsRock Gen 3 Extreme 3
RAM: 16GB DDR3 Gskillz
Graphics Card: 2x GTX 570's
Power Supply: 850w Corsair PSU
Any Other comments: The case is a Fractal Design Refine R3, 2 screens and Logitech G510 keyboard with Razer Naga mouse!

So this rig cost me an arm and a leg, I get most of it for free because I review but currently going down custom watercooling road, so should be fun. I'm interested to see what you guys are packing. The good the bad and the ugly!

CPU: Intel Core i7 920
Motherboard: Asus P6T-SE
RAM: 6GB Corsair DDR3
Graphics Card: Radeon 3400 (yeah its pathetic lol)
Power Supply: 750w CIT PSU
Hard Drives: 2x1TB Samsung/Hitachi.
Heatsink/Cooler: Titan Fenrir

Any Other comments: This system is old now, roughly three years but its still powerful enough for me to do what I do, I am happy with the rendering times. I have a beautiful case, the Antec 1200 (I always wanted an Antec case and finally got one and its just perfect). I want more RAM and a new graphics card at some point mostly a graphics card as the 6gb performs well enough for me.

Cameras and Equipment:

Canon 650D

That's a nice computer! 330watts. That's vile! I don't know why companies do that. Nice 2nd rig!

Yea they`re reliable but a bit over expensive and the wireless card in that PC was so bad I changed it on day 2, by visiting Dell/Alienware , lucky their offices are 5 minutes away :)[DOUBLEPOST=1358688385,1358688303][/DOUBLEPOST]

Maybe you should upgrade even to a medium range card such as the Nvidia GTX 260 :)

To be honest with you, I would go as far as saying 6GB is fine for the next few years. 16GB is far overkill I have never seen use above 5GB so that says it all![DOUBLEPOST=1358688474,1358688397][/DOUBLEPOST]

That's a little too old, I would say a 400 serious Nvida card would suit you will, cheap as chips right now!
