Post Computer Specs and Builds
Post you're sweet computer specs, make everyone jealous on how much better your computer is. Feel free to ask questions on your custom builds, us super geeks are here to help (and make fun of you, but just a bit)!

Monitor: 21" Acer
Case: CoolerMaster
Power supply: 700W
Graphics: 2x Nvidia 9800 GT
RAM: 4GB at 800MHz
CPU: Q6660 quad core 2.4 GHz per core
Motherboard: MicroStar (crud mobo, as a holdover)
Mouse: G5
Keyboard: G15

Planned Upgrades: Need to get a new motherboard sometime this week. I also need to get a new power supply soon since this one's cables are too fat and take up too much space. Possibly some RAM depending on what motherboard I buy. I might also get a second monitor.

Pentium 4.
On board sound whatever.
Ages old ATI card that gets unplugged sometimes.
Not enough ram to shake a stick at.
Cooled by the onboard fan and my waving hand.
A rollerball mouse
Keyboard that has keys that stick
power comes from hamster wheels

And yet it can play every valve game to date

Did I mention that mine is dead silent? Yes, has a massive heat-pipe heatsink with an even larger fan. Even when under stress, the heatsink remains only warm to the touch, while the fan spins so slow its hardly audiable.(as i recall) :)
I plan on upgrading the RAM to 6GB, upgrading the processor to a core 2 duo or quad, the HDD to 1TB and installing windows 7 x64. :D

Monitor: I dual screen a 22" Hanns-G and some random 17" Polaroid thing I don't even know what it is.
Case: NZXT Tempest
Power Supply: 750W
Graphics: 2x GeForce GTX 260
RAM: 6GB running at 1600MHz (they're overclocked)
CPU: Quad core, Intel Core-i7 920, 2.66GHz
Motherboard: eVGA X58 sli
Mouse: Logitech MX Air
Keyboard: Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard 3000
CPU Fan: Noctua NH-U12P SE1366
Storage: 2x Western Digital 640Gb, 7200RPM
Optical Drive: Some general Samsung thing.

As an aside, my case came with 5 fans built in, and it all runs really quiet which I find surprising. I plan to eventually buy two 2 TB hard drives to add to the space I have now. I also want to get a Lite-On Blu-ray optical drive.

Post Re: Computer Specs and Builds
I'm going to revive a dead topic because we have enough new people for it to gain momentum again.

In October of 2010, I got a new laptop.
It's an HP Pavilion dv6t series.
6 GB of of DDR3 RAM
i5 Intel core (the first generation, I bought it when the i cores were almost brand new)
7500 RPM
640 GB of HDD
Windows 7
~2.7 GHz processor with overclocking abilities
Integrated graphics card NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-
Integrated webcam with mic
15.6" screen

Here have a picture.

My laptop also have one of those bogus fingerprint readers integrated into it. It definitely works, but it's not at all difficult to hack into this piece of software that is basically a database of all your passwords. Soooo... I don't use it. :P

Now here's something in my area of interest.
I custom built mine around a year ago.

• Intel Core i7 - 2600k @ 3.60GHz (overclocked)
• 8 GB DDR3 RAM
• 120GB Intel SSD & 500GB Hard Drive
• 2x GTX 460 1GB (SLI)
• Windows 8 Professional
• Three 22" Monitors - NVIDIA Surround (6060x1080 Resolution)
• Antec DF-85 Full Tower Case - 8 fans (3 front, 2 top, 2 back, 1 side)

Overall, it works extremely well.

Esquire, I'd like to hear about the building experience some time. You know what kind of computer courses that are available to me in high school, verses how many actually teach something that is a bit too difficult to figure out independently (the two programming courses).

I have more general knowledge about computers than the average user, but it's not extensive, simply because I've never had the opportunity open to me to really go in-depth with the learning process. If you would ever like to give me a Computer Hardware and Software 101 lesson so I won't be thrown to the wolves next year, I would really, really appreciate it. Obviously if I chose computer engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science as a triple major in 4.5 years (it's possible and not difficult at State!), I have to have some desire to learn the material. :P

My Rig:
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T OC'd @3.8Ghz (with turbo set to 4Ghz)
ASUS Crosshair IV mainboard.
16GB G.Skill DDR3 @ 2000 (hard to stabilize at that speed on that MB)

Correction: My laptop's processor speed runs at 2.5 GHz normally. I don't remember what it overclocks to.

My laptop automatically overclocked one time, I think about one or two months into ownership. I believe I was synchronizing my iPod to my new computer (yeah, that's only a 6,000 song collection with about four movies and 3,000 photos) while installing some newer programs in the background and indexing my hard drive. Or something like that. I remember my computer pinged and the screen brightness turned all the way up. That was interesting to watch in Task Manager.

Post Re: Computer Specs and Builds
I'm not the best technical mind but I found a PC tower that I liked a few years back and it's worked like a charm!

Hewlett-Packard HPE-510y
AMD Phenom(tm) X6 1055T Processor 2.80GHz
8GB RAM
64-bit operating system
1.5 TB hard drive
Windows 7 Home Premium
Microsoft Office 2010
Webroot Security
IE9 and Mozilla FireFox

Well it's not exactly a space ship but it does what I need it to do, plus its not bad for playing PC games either!

If you hit the "Windows" key and the "r" key at the same time, it will bring up the Run command. Type "dxdiag" (without quotations, obviously) in the Run command and hit Enter. Let it check your digitally signed drivers, and it will give you some information about your system.
You probably already knew that though, unless you did a darn good job at memorizing your processor information. X.X

Purchasing a new laptop you guys:
http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-o ... otebook-PC

I've looked up both the graphics card and the processor, both of which should be pretty okay for gaming:

http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeF ... 887.0.html

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core ... 051.0.html

I'm mainly worried about the graphics card. I'm worried it won't perform as well as notebookcheck says it will. I'd like to play Skyrim, Dishonored, LA Noire, Fallout: New Vegas, GTA 4, Antichamber, Portal 1 & 2, Half Life, Bioshock Infinite, and some old-school emulators as well. Also I want to play whatever new PC games that come out within the next 3-4 years. What do you guys think? This laptop certainly exceeds my college of engineering requirements.

What do you guys think? Any concerns to voice before I shell out $864 with my student discount?

If you're wanting to play games on Pc, then it's Desktop time. If you want a really good Laptop for gaming, plan on spending $1,500 bucks. You can make a good budget gaming desktop for only around $500-600 bucks.


My Pc is a completely stock: Hp Pavilion p7-1235
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6883157361

I'm able to play Portal 2 on high, Eve online(when I was playing it), Civilization 5 on high, Amnesia on Medium. All I plan to do with this Pc is get a bigger power source and better graphics card.

I'm also playing all of this on a 46in Led Samsung tv. I love Pc =)

OK, I'll bite. A couple of weeks ago, I assembled a new desktop. I'm still using my old 17" LCD monitor, which saved some money.

CPU: AMD A10 6800k APU (4.1GHz, quad-core)
Motherboard: Asus F2A85-M Pro
Power Supply: Corsair 650W
RAM: 16GB DDR3 (64GB supported, once 16GB RAM sticks hit the market)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
OS: Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

That didn't answer my question at all, but thanks anyway. I'm a college student, and I need a laptop. Half of the people I talk to say that you need to empty your bank account to get a gaming laptop, while the other half agree that you don't need 16 GB of RAM to play a game. This laptop has better specs than my boyfriend's PC, and he can run most of the games I just mentioned on high or ultra.

So again, how's the laptop that I picked out, guys?

Sorry about that. Basically I was just saying you're better off with a desktop.

As for the Laptop you picked out, it looks good there's no doubt about that. Those 8GB of ram will come in handy. I was told it takes 4GB to run skyrim, so if that help you any. The Graphics card being integrated will slow down some of the games you want to play. Of course depending on what resolution you play at will have a big factor seeing how your screen goes up to 1920x1080. You should be fine with that processor, but this is coming from a radeon guy.

Dang! And I thought my Pc being compatible up to 32Gb was a lot. You defiantly know how to make a Pc sir. I myself am still very newbish. Kinda the reason I went out and just got a stock Pc to start out with and build later.
