What's your rig?

Post your rigs here Smile

Right now I'm using a self-build PC, but it's quite old:
P4 prescott @ 3Ghz (stock cooling)
Asus P4P800S-SE mobo
512 DC DDR400 memory (generic)
Maxtor 80GB (non SATA)
Radeon 9600XT 256MB 128Mb @400Mhz core,205Mhz mem
Generic 400W PSU
Generic Case
Xerox 15" LCD screen (I'm happy with it)

I'm hopefully buying a new rig next week:
Core 2 duo E6300 (Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro)
Gigabyte GA-965P-D/S3 mobo
G.Skill 1GB [DC] DDR2 800Mhz CL4/5 memory
GeCube x1950PRO 512MB 256Mb (very strong mid-range)
Enermax Liberty 400W (40A on double 12v rail Very Happy)
HEC 6A19 case (for modding)
Once again, we have a post your rig day:

I sold my old superBOB

Went from 3700+ AMD 2.4Ghz - to a intell Conroe 3.6 OC !! and it is at least 8 to 15 times faster!!!

2 Gbs of DDR1 400 (Single Channel) to 2Gb of DDR2 800 4-4-4-12 Duel Channel (SLi, lol)

Mobo nForce 4 to 6 (Much better, teaming 2 Gbit Eithernet and SataII were my RAID in ten times faster, and cleaner running.

New Case, from Articl SunBeam to ThermlTake Aguila Case, not as flashy, but instead of taking 3+ hours to install one drive it take at most 5 mins!!!
plus better cooling

Well here is my new one:
WhiteBox (meaning it is coustem built) Still don't have a name, maybe The Bob
E6600 Conroe stock @ 2.4 With Zalman Cooler @3.60Ghz
eVGA NForce 680i MoBo with 2Gbit Teaming Eithernet, Sata 2, and other sweetness
2 GB of DDR2 800 Ram

This thread is here to replace all the "what's your specs" threads that had been posted or might pop up in the future Smile
Mine is a cool lappy...


AMD TURION 64 X2 , 512MB DDR 667 MHz, 256 MB video card (Geforce GO)..

its fast.... real fast...cant compare it with C2D though....
AMD Opteron 148 overclocked to 2.9Ghz
DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 motherboard
1GB (single channel) Corsair XMS DDR400 overclocked to 236mhz
SilverStone 500W Silent PSU
Maxtor 60GB HDD
Samsung 250GB HDD
Western Digital 100GB HDD
Antec P180 Case
19" View Sonic LCD display
17" Dell CRT
Logitec Keyboard with wireless mouse

I have some upgrades planned including a new processor, another Gig of RAM and some new hard drives as well as another LCD monitor and possibly either a 7900GTX or 8800GTS/X depending on how thing go in the next month or two.

I also have a few noteworthy linux machines used as game servers.

One is a PIII 500mhz with 512mb of RAM, 10GB of hard disk space and a 4MB AGP graphics card (it only needs to display text). The other one is a K6 processor that runs at 333mhz and has about 300mbs of RAM and a 5GB hard disk with currently no graphics card installed on it (its been somewhat decommissioned from service as a server since I got the PIII)
I have an old Monorail PIII 450MHZ... 384MB Ram... 32MB DVI Video Card (ATI Radeon).

I used to have a self-built AMD XP2200 (1.7GHZ) with 768MB and 256MB Geforce 6200... was just planning an upgrade when I lost my job 5 months ago and money's been super tight ever since.

Unfortunately 2 days after I lost my job I removed the fan/heatsink to clean it out (processor was starting to overheat) and upon reinstallation it never booted back up, somehow I messed up the motherboard.

So now I'm on my backup. I also have a 1.0GHZ Pentium system, but it has no AGP slots and the onboard video sucks on it. For the few games I can play anymore, the 450MHZ actually performs better as a result (Sims1 runs amazingly smooth for my wife).

Unless someone comes through with a new computer for me at Christmas (which I doubt as neither of our families has any money either), I'll be building me a new system as soon as I find steady work, and as soon as our bills are caught up.
Well, I have got a Windows and a mac :
1. Processor: AMD Athlon 3000+ 939 pin Venice Core
2. Mainboard: Asus A8NE
3. Graphics: Leadtek 6600
4. HDD: 80 GB SATA + 120 GB PATA
5. Antec Lanboy Cabinet
6. Monitor: Samsung 17
7. Creative Speakers.
8. Pinnacle PCTV TV Tuner Card
9. Oops I forgot RAM 512 MB 400 MHZ

iBook G3
1. PowerPC G3 600 MHz
2. RAM 640 MB
pretty old stuff really myself, should really update it:

Works fine but will be costly to upgrade this I think seeing as graphics card is AGP, PSU only has a 20-pin lead. So only thing I can keep is the case and the memory

I scrapped my other rig because it had way too many issues. Could have been the ram/motherboard, who knows. My other build I scraped was:

* DFI LANParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G Motherboard
* Enermax 535W All In One SLI Ready PSU
* AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
* OCZ Gold XTC PC2-6400 2GB DDR2
* Zalman CNPS9500 AM2 Heatsink Fan
* ATI Radeon X1650 PRO 512MB DDR2
* Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4
* Logitech 5.1 Z-5300 Sound System

I went a completely different route this time, this is what I am in the process of building now:

* Raidmax Scorpio 868 Mini Tower Case (BLACK)
* Samsung 20" Wide LCD Monitor (206BW)
* ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
* Enermax 535 All In One SLI Ready PSU
* AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
* Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048 PC6400 2GB DDR2-800
* Zalman CNPS9500 Heatsink Fan
* BFG GeForce 7600 GT OC 256MB DDR3
* Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4
* Logitech 5.1 Z-5300 Sound System
Scrapped it? Do you mean you sold it, or just built another?

And that is a baaad downgrade on the vid card man... You cut yourself short there Sad

New build:

Full DD watercooling (I won it in a contest), including custom heatercore from a limo
Gigabyte GA965P-DS3 rev 3.3
2Gb OCZ PC8800 RAM
eVGA 7800GT
WD caviar primary
Lite On SATA DVD burner
secondary vid card (crap one for quad monitors)
crammed into a TT Matrix.

My four monitors:
19" LCD
17" LCD
12" LCD
All run off VGA, though my system has 3 DVI outs and 2 component outs. I also have a Sony home theater system for sound, but its a bit crappy.

The build is still in progress (less than 1/2 done), I'll post pics when I'm done. I expect to hit at least 3GHz, but probably 3.5GHz or more on this one. It will be crazy.
By scrapped, I mean that I took everything apart and returned for refund.

Also, psycosquirrel, I realized that it was a big downgrade LOL. I had 30 days to return for a refund, so I believe it was the 30th day and I returned for a refund for that BFG 7600 (at least I could still return the BFG if I needed to, and had another 30 days to make the decision).

For years I been an ATI fan, and within a blink I was swerved to nVidia. ATI comes out with drivers to fix many issues every month. When does nVidia come out with new drivers? They never, they come out with them probabably every few months. This is because they make sure there are no flaws or bugs that would need to be looked into in the future. ATI even lists known flaws with newest drivers they put out.

That being said, I did go a little bit of a different route, and a possitive route. I am not too very fond of BFG simply because they overclock they're cards, thus decreasing the lifespan of them. I did indeed return the BFG 7600 GeForce video card. Which one did I decide to go with? I decided on the EVGA 7900 GeForce GS KO 256MB DDR3. Just awaiting to receive the card along with my case and should assemble everything then.

EDIT: My final build that is on it's way:

* Raidmax Scorpio 868 Mini Tower Case (BLACK)
* Samsung 20" Wide LCD Monitor (206BW)
* ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
* Enermax 535 All In One SLI Ready PSU
* AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
* Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048 PC6400 2GB DDR2-800
* Zalman CNPS9500 Heatsink Fan
* EVGA GeForce 7900 GS KO 256MB DDR3
* Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4
* Logitech 5.1 Z-5300 Sound System
Awesome! I used to have the eVGA 7900GS KO. It was a GREAT card, the best I ever had.

While NVIDIA has less driver releases, their drivers are almost always problem-free. It is very rare to hit driver issues, and they can easily be remedied by calling their tech support or posting on their forums. I've never had a problem with ATI or NVIDIA though, so I am speaking on the experience of others.

The stock overclocking doesn't really lower the lifespan much anyways, it will last for at least 5 years, and BFG gives you a lifetime warrantee, so there is nothing you needed to worry about Cool
I hear ya, in general, although I have not had experience with BFG, I almost will decide to never go with them. The reason being, is because im not too much of an overclocker, never learned the ways of overclocking, never even bothered with it. I suppose that can be a reason why I would not be very fond of BFG.

A friend of mine, his name on this is Zyprius, he has the eVGA 7950GT KO, and he loves the card. The one I will be receiving will be a small notch below that one, so there should be no real visual difference. Reason why I choose the 7900GS KO, was also because of the price. It was approximately $130 cheaper than the 7950GT KO. Can't wait to test out the new card, as I hear that eVGA are one of the best.
Not one of the best, the best Wink

eVGA is amazing, they seem to have come out of nowhere too. I would say XFX is in a short second, followed by BFG. BFG is usually overpriced because they used to have a reputation like eVGA's.

The 7900GS is one of the best bang for your buck cards. The 7900GT is barely better, but usually costs at least $100 more, same with the 7950. At your res, you should see no difference Very Happy

Well, I just made some upgrades to my main desktop.

-Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.8 GHz (will OC when I'm in the mood) with Hyper Threading, 800 MHz FSB and 1 MB of L2 Cache.
-1.5 GB of DDR PC3200 RAM (Two 256 MB sticks and one 1 GB stick)

I'll probably using this computer as my main one for awhile. The upgrades made it better but the Pentium 4 CPU isn't enough. I'm waiting for a laptop...which will bring my desktop to it's knees.

Oh, and I also have some other rigs lying around. Most of them are weaker in all aspects, except one which has a Pentium D CPU @ 3 GHz (but is weaker in everything else as it has 512 MB of RAM and onboard graphics).

my occupation: graphic design/marketing/advertising.
do you think mac are much better than pc?
I think it depends on what you need to do with the computer.. for example:
if you are a printmaker proof only mac will do for you, but if you want navigate internet a linux-pc is the choice Smile
mac kills it for everything i need.

for me, the days of PC are long gone (and thank goodness for that!)

for those who want to spend hours installing new drivers and third party apps, get a PC and build it from scratch - you'll get a higher spec machine than my mac for a lot less and you will be able to open it up, replace parts and upgrade when needed.

for those who want a machine that just does everything flawlessly out of the box without any assistance, get a mac.

my iMac is the shizzle, how cool are the new keyboards?!!! beautiful.
Yes I find macs estetically pleasing, too!
I agree with you, althought I am, and will be, very happy with my PC/laptop.
Surely I can say that windows-PCs are not good at all Razz

Crappy old HP server case...

My system owns yours. Very Happy
what a beast, you've got a mainframe rather than a pc! Very Happy
525W is its medium power consumption? do you know if this lowers noticeably when cpu slow down? (if she does)
Q6700 Intel Core 2 Quad - 2.66 GHz, 1066 MHz Front Side Bus, 8MB L2 Cache (upgrading to QX6850 sometime soon)

Logitech MX Revolution Mouse
Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard
Logitech Ultravision Webcam - Silver

Going to get a PCIex1 Dual-band Wireless-N NIC (I don't care from who--whoever releases it first for a decent price, but I'm assuming Dlink since their Xtreme Router is dual-band and they already have one PCIex1 Wireless-N NIC, but it's not dual-band), at least a 22-in LCD monitor (since my old one was 22-in), and maybe a TV tuner card (ATSC, NTSC, and QAM)

In case anyone was wondering, my old rig was stolen when some crooks broke into my house... Crying or Very sad

525w is for the peltier alone! Surprised

Total consumption, including the LCD and surround system is over 1KW. Idle it drops to around 650w, I would guess. The peltier doesn't operate at full, because I have to keep the system above the dew point or I will get condensation. It usually stays around 50%.
compliments for your setup Psycosquirrel!
I didn't imagine it could take over 1KW, however thinking it can lowers itself to 60% is good and interesting. I believe your computer is very very *fast*. Thanks for this explanation Smile

How did you setup them? on Windows or Linux?

My "new" rig that's now about a year and a half old is pretty simple...

-3rd generation MacBook Pro, 15" widescreen
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB Crucial RAM
built-in GeForce 8600M GT (256 measly MB of RAM to it)

It runs OS X 10.4.11 natively, with Parallels VM taking over functions for Windows XP and Vista machines as well as a SuSE 10.3 and Debian Etch installs.

I don't really game, so the Mac works perfectly for me!

ATM im looking at getting: PLEASE NOTE! The main purpose of this RIG is to support the graphics card (even though its noisy) because i will be doing CAD for Engineering AND will be doing high physics processing stuff AND Simulations for planes (designed in CAD)

I built a new one to replace my oldish P4 system over winter break:

Intel Core 2 Quad 8200 2.33Ghz @ 2.8Ghz (It's stable at 3.2+Ghz, but I like to have it running w/o increased voltage over stock)
2x2048MB OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2 1066Mhz 5-5-5-15 RAM
Sapphire ATI Radeon 4850 512MB
2x160GB Seagate 7200.10

2048 MB @ 800MHz
Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX
500 GB Maxtor
Parkour_Jarrod, you're one lucky man. Although, I'd never use the 5800 for anything other than video editing (stuff like Pixar makes) because it's just too good of a card to be gaming with, and it's not meant for gaming.
I've posted in this thread before, but I've been doing some overclocking...Rolling Eyes

Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33Ghz M1 Stepping @ 3.3Ghz 472*7 1.250V (MCH @1.2V CPU Term @ 1.26)
2x2GB OCZ Reaper HPC PC8500 @ 944Mhz (1:1 is actually faster than asynchronous @~1066Mhz)
Sapphire ATI Radeon 4850 Non-Reference Blue PCB (625/993) @ 680-core 1100-mem
1TB Seagate 7200.11
430W Antec Neo-HE PSU (I listed this as 420W before, that was incorrect)

3.3Ghz is pretty easy, however 3.4 needs some voltages that I would be uncomfortable with 24/7. I'm hoping to eventually get 3.4 (or 3.5) with some lower voltages as I tweak a bit more so that I don't have to have the MCH voltages so high.

yeah its also for CAD stuff that pro architects and engineers use aswell as hardware designers (i can design my own graphics card one day Razz), and im not going to be using it for gaming so that all good eh Razz

You must agree it is a beastly build for 1K up front Very Happy I was proud of myself. I would have rather'ed a 1080P monitor, a 4870(OC'd to 4890 specs), and a second hard drive to put in RAID 0, to help protect against an HD failiure. Buut, I only have 1K to budget, so 1K was my limit.

My monitor is a 18" ViewSonic CRT display which I'm thinking of replacing. Dell keyboard and Logitech laser mouse. Cyber acoustics powered speaker system which I think might be moved somewhere else.

It's not that fast but it's alright. Not bad for a 5 year old computer. It used to be 256mb of ram but I had a stick that I stuck in there.

Talk about a great deal!

My old computer had a monitor problem and my fan stopped working so it was definitely time for an upgrade!
@GoldenEagle heck of a deal there mate, sounds sweet! I built my rig last year for $2000 Kiwi, 3.4 Ghz clock AMD Phenom 2 X4, 4Gb ram, and a Radeon 5800 HD GFX card. Was pretty good at the time obviously you could get a much better deal nowadays, but still runs everything I throw at it extremely well, so Im happy. Smile
