    The Ultimate PC thread!

    "Hey. I like PCs. You like PCs? Lets like PCs together.. and hold hands and stuff."

    Ok, I dont mean that literally. Those words just sum up this thread however.

    Show off your rig or computer set up! Brag about whats in your box, or what you want or hope to get. Lets talk about case modding, or new gfx cards, hell even glow in the dark Random Access Memory. lol

    Thats what this thread is about. Absolutely no computer hating either, or else I will show you my fist.. and by that I do not mean the fist of love if you get my drift (im not into that).

    Alright.
    Starting off: This is my current setup.

    The PC is getting old. Only 2ghz with an older ATI Radeon card (3 years old). It sports a demon black and red casing with internal fan led lights. 4 usb 2.0 in the front, 4 in the back. Sexy but time to get replaced.

    The lappy is my baby, but shes also getting old. She sports a 19'' LCD screen, 2 gigs of RAM and a Geforce 7800GTX Go GPU. Ok.. lol maybe shes not old yet. Also 2 ghz.. AMD. AMD is the way to go. The mouse as you might have noticed is the Razor Copperhead. Very good mouse, if you are looking for one they are the best.

    Just ordered this system (between ibuypower and newegg.com):

    I plan on replacing the cheapo geforce 8500GT card with the Geforce 8800GTX when it goes down in price come this winter. Right now, its pointless to buy a $600 graphics card when the next line of Geforce cards are coming out, thus causing the 8 series to drop in price drastically.

    I was able to get the whole set up for $620. Once I get a new vid card and maybe another 2 gigs of ram, the system will be smoking. For $750 a top of the line rig is nice, with a few upgrades it will be beyond top of the line. (no quad core for me though).

    The goal is to have it ready for Age of Conan. It will be played on a large HDTV at 1900x1080 resolution. Talk about hot huh. ;-)

    This is real gaming folks.

    Ok share!!!! I want to see your setups, rigs, or thoughts. Doesnt matter how humble it is.

    i just got the case a week ago. its a RAIDMAX SMILODON that came with 4 fans (1 LED and 1 120mm intake) and a good 500w PSU (stock PSUs are hardly ever good but this one had MANY good reviews) ive got a chaintech VNF4/ULTRA motherboard with 1 gig of pqi RAM (w/ heat spreaders), amd 3000+ 64 (was $167 when i bought it LAST YEAR and now its only $25 WTF!!) (going to upgrade soon since i can get one thats almost double the power for only $40-$50) an nvidia 6600GT 128MB. it can play anything you throw at it but most of the new games can only be run on low settings. mind you the entire system was only $300 from newegg

    ah, good stuff. I wouldnt go with the 7000 series though, not that its bad ( I have the 7800gtx) but it wont be compatible with dirx 10. This winter the 9k series is coming out, the 8k series will drop in price. Wait then and get one of the 8k series with dirx10 support. =) thats my opinion anyways.

    Right now newegg.com is having a killer sale on g.skill ram also. I got 2 gigs for 84 bucks. Heatspreaders and all. came with a 1 gig flash stick as well.

    i dont like spending too much money on my PC. im more of a budget builder. i was plaining on waiting a little longer to upgrade because i know the new hardware is coming out. it just depends on the prices when all the new hardware is released

    I'm not going to bother posting my current PC's specs; they're crap anyway. Well, considering it's almost 4 years old I guess they're not so bad, but still.
    I plan on upgrading soon so I can get Crysis, Unreal 3, and World in Conflict among others. Then I'll go all out and get the best I can.
