    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!

    Thanks for telling!

    I was never into macs I didn't want to fork out that kind of money. However, I'm looking for a new laptop so maybe thats something I will look into!

    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

    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 :)

    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!

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