Intel Pentium 4 3.65 GHz
1024 MB Kingston...or Corsair....I've forgotten....RAM DDR2
ummm....
ATI Radeon X800 XT 256MB DDR3 memory
Samsung....I think....200GB 7200RPM (more like 190GB though including cache space)

Btw anyone know where I can get a good clocking program? I'd like to soup my rig up a bit more if possible.

Fuzzy logic from MSI (Micro Star International) pumped my old 1800xp to 2000xp

Finally installed the 1.5TB HDD that has been laying on my desk for 6 months. My setup is now:

CPU: Intel 2160 Dual-Core @ 3.15 GHz (75% overclock from 1.8 GHz, roughly Core2Duo E6850 equivalent), water cooled
RAM: 4x1GB OCZ Platinum
GPU: NVIDIA GTX 260 + 7900GT
Motherboard: MSI P35 Platinum
HDDs: 3.29 TiB total (~3.6 TB) as 250GB + 300GB + 320GB + 500GB + 750GB + 1.5TB drives; 1.42 TiB free space (~1.55 TB)
Monitor: Dell 2005FPW (20" LCD) + 17" CRT
Case: InWin Q500 (8" x 2' x 17")

My secondary computers have total network-accessible space of around another 300GB made out of old IDE drives, although they're not running continuously.

Changed out the harddrives for ServerBox. Now running 2 80GB WDs, and 8 1.5TB 5600rpm SS green drives instead, running in Raid6. Also changed out the hardware raid for an Areca controller, with a 2GB DRAM and the battery backup extension. Speeds are phenomenal, to say the least; t'was totally worth the grand for the card and battery backup module.



Finally getting started on making my virtual library now. Not looking forwards to how long its going to take to finish copying all those DVDs to the raid though.

Only chance for me since my last post is that I changed to the Windows 7 release candidate. I plan on upgrading to the final release of Win7Pro within the next few months. I'm in no rush, since the system is running fine as it is and money is a bit tight at the moment.

Also, I had a faulty stick of RAM, so I upgraded to 8GB while I was at it, just because I could. It probably doesn't make the least bit of difference from the 4GB I had before, but I've been thinking of making a RAM drive to run select games off to see what it does to the load times.

I haven't got around to it yet. I really should make a list of all the things I've been meaning to get around to so I don't forget like I usually do.

Okay, the rest of it arrived...
i7 5820 6 Core
16GB ram
2x 3TB drives
1x 250 GB SSD
980 GTX 4GB

Its virtually silent, I think its the first time in years I have had a computer that doesnt make my ears bleed.

The bios post screen seems to be slowest part of booting, loving it.

Use it to play Euro truck sim 2..... I need to buy some games.

i7-2600K
Nvidia GTX 780 3 GB
8 GB RAM, cl 7, 1600 MHz
Maximus IV Extreme-Z mobo
128 GB SSD & 5 TB of storage spread across 4 drives

2560x1440 screen, 28 inches.

Bought this 3 years ago, or so, where it had SLI 580s. Upped them to a single 780. What a great card.

I have to agree that modern cards are rather scary. I went from a 480 to the 980 and it does just seem that you can turn all the toys on. I think only Arma 3 has slowed things down.
