    Post your computer specs!

    Hey guys!

    I just thought it would be interesting to those computer enthusiasts on AP to share what hardware they are running! Here's mine (And a photo will soon come after the case modding is done)

    CPU - i7 930 @2.8Ghz (Haven't overclocked it yet - will do later this week)
    Motherboard - ASRock Extreme X58
    Memory - 12GB G-skill 2Ghz DDR3 RAM
    HDD - 750GB SATAII @ 7200RPM
    Video - 2x Geforce 560 SOC (Super Overclock)
    CPU Cooling - Corsair H70
    Monitor - ASUS VX27H 26.5" LCD Monitor
    Case - Antec Twelve Hundred
    Keyboard - Logitech G15
    Mouse - Logitech MX1100 Precision Laser Mouse
    O/S - Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
    OTHERS -
    Logitech G35 7.1 Surroud Sound Headphones
    Logitech X-530 5.1 Speakers
    Logitech G25 Steering Wheel
    Logitech G27 Steering Wheel
    Zalman Fan Controller
    5x Enermax HIFLOW 120mm Fans (WHITE LED) - will be put in case upon arrival!

    So there you go, that's my sexy beast nick named at BIGBLUE at the moment! Hehehe.
    And some useless information lol, I killed my Radeon 5970 while putting the Arctic Cooling Xtrme 5970 cooler on it

    Share your computer!!

    EDIT: Fixed typo.

    Mongo swears that sometimes it feels like 2 old wheels with a broken hamster and an old guinea pig with 3 legs who thinks it can run like a hamster.

    Mongo swears that sometimes they start to look more valuable as a couple of quick entrees than running his computer.

    A sorry but accurate picture of Mongo’s computer capabilities/ resources.

    This thread frighteningly reminds me of Whirlpool; there are plenty of people there measurebating over their PC specs.

    Next we'll need a 'whinge about your ISP' thread...

    It's in the technology thread and is no different to people going on about what camera gear they own.

    Don't worry, whipper. I was just too lazy to write them all down.

    Not really. Most of us into digital will have a very keen interest and reasonable knowledge of these things. Just too lazy to write it all out. Even Mongo is thinking of replacing his hamsters with some high end i7 gear with all the trimmings.

    Must say, Richard appears to have a big one

    I found i7's 5's and 3's to be too costly on a performance price ratio.

    I went with a AMD x4(955 I think in the end).

    cost was my main priority and I ain't wasting $1000 on a machine that worth $200 when I walk out the door of the shop!

    Can't remember every facet of every spec, but they may be:

    Asus M489GTD-Pro/USB3
    AMD x4-955
    8G GSkill ram of some flavour
    piddly 220 series Asus branded nvidia card..(BUT!!... I knew I should have gone with an equivalently priced ATI card. this one is ok, graphics speed is unimportant for photo processing).
    multiple hdd's (of terabyte sizing, with more to come I think)
    AeroCool case(or worthless value!) reasonably cheap considering the quality, and that enormous 40cm fan on the side, but a PITA to add remove hdd's.. should have stuck with Antec!!)

    ummm.... what else gets listed in these races??.. OS.. Win7 Pro, but may also install Ubuntu on the next reinstallation if new hdd's come along.
    Ooooh! I remember!!.. A mouse and keyboard! I got me a new keyboard a few weeks ago, one of those M$ ergonomic types(came with a mouse too). Kids PC(my very old one) still required a kb, so I had to get myself a new one, after liquid papering the old worn out lettering on that old banger. But I got a new ergo 7000 kit'n'kaboodle keyboard/mouse setup. The mouse is the same as I've been used to for a year or so now, but the ergo keyboard.. if you havn't tried one yet, and do lots of typing(sounds familiar ) you may end up loving this ergo layout .. typing 5000 word replies in 5 mins 24/7!!?? a doddle. The split keys setup gets a little weird at first, but forces you to type correctly and from there, you;re flying like a 5000 word madman on a mission of literary stardom! .. OOOPS!! sorry, I forgot, back onto the topic of the day...
    Microsoft Natural wireless Ergonomic Keyboard 7000(plus mouse)
    Speakers(old generic distortomatics of some ungodly type!)
    lots of cabling... ooodles of the stuff actually... bunny loves it here(she's a cable-aholic! )
    24" LG W2442PA(cheapness)... (high on the wishlist of stuff to get very soon. 27" Dell U2711 I reckon, possibly a 24" U2410 as a second preference... funds willing).

    everything runs nice'n'fast now, far less waiting than with the old XP3200(AMD) for almost all tasks that tax the CPU.
    It seems my 3 legged guinea pig has had a bionic transplant to help him along for the next 7 or so years.

    Personally not interested in the specs themselves, as long as the price is at the lowest possible denominator for a given performance rate, I'm happy.
    You can get too cheap, and you can also be sucked in to the upgrade to the highest spec syndrome, for no real effective gain.

    of course this is from a non gamers POV, so yours may vary a lot from this one.
