Hello there,  I'm looking around for a decent PC to run Home Entertainment and Gaming, and thought it would be a good idea for you all to share your PC's so I can get a feel for what you guys are running.

 

Keen on the following:

- specs

- mods

- what you use it for

- cost

- pictures

 

Sorry if this has been posted previously, I did a search but couldn't find any existing thread.

There's this http://forums.nzgame...aming-rig-pics/ but it's pretty out of date.

 

My 5? 6? year old workhorse.

 

Case: F430

Motherboard: P5K-SE

Processor: Intel Core2 Quad 2.40GHz

RAM: 3.25GB

GPU: Nvidia GTX 460 1GB

OS: Win XP 32bit

Screen: AOC 24"

Peripherals: Shitty

 

I've only upgraded the GPU since I bought it (from an 8800GT), and replaced the original monitor and router because they died.

 

Upgrading to Win 7 64bit, doubling my RAM and buying an MMO mouse soon. Then intend to run it into the ground and replace the whole thing once it no longer does what I require of it.

 

Use: Gaming.

Can't help you with specs as i "game" on a MacBook Pro using Bootcamp which isn't ideal :(

 

But i would also be interested to know what a decent(able to run games like BF4 at High) gaming rig costs nowadays.

I built mine in 2011.

i7 2600K @ 3.4GHz
8GB DDR3
2x 2TB hdds
AMD 6950 unlocked and flashed to 6970
Win 8.1 Pro

I use this for .NET application development, media streaming, video encoding and of course gaming.
The GPU wants replacing tho, it's kind of min req. at best.

Was built for around $2000

Nice build. Just wondering how important you feel the sound-proofing equipment is. I don't think I;d go as far as getting the material but was considering the washers. Have you used them in the past, or do you know they make a definite difference to the sound? I've bought all my components, but once I build the rig I'll be sure to post some photos.

My pc although quite new is a HP system that has a crap case with no upgrade options I got home and broke the warranty instantly as didn't see the sticker was sitting over the slide off side of the case anyway specs are...

 

Intel i7 2600 cpu @3.4GHz

8gig Ram

Geforce GT530

 

Shitty card really I need to get a gfx card upgrade but to do that I need to also get a PSU upgrade so for now I'm sticking mainly to console gaming.  I do run it as a HTPC and reason I opened it up when I got it home was to pop in my Bluray drive from my old pc.

Thanks :) The only reason I got the sound proofing as I constantly run it at max load on the CPU. As a result the fans run at max which can get a bit noisy specially with 7! (1 rear, 2 top, 2 front, 2 CPU). I would proberly recommend going for a better case. When I started my build I was on a budget, mate got the bitfeinx ghost and a similar build and its WAY quiter. Fractal Design fans a definitely the way to go too, had cool master jetflos and it was loud like 4x current without soundproofing. If your not pushing the machine that much though you wouldnt need as many fans so sound wouldnt be much of an issue anyways. Wouldve got bigger fan CPU cooler too if I wasnt freaking about space.... first time builder for ya :) Oh didnt answer your question... sides off it runs about as loud as the X360 with sides on quieter than a Wii U or PS4 so a good 20-30% reduction

Some really great info there cheers chinaman. I got the Corsair 760T tower which seemed nice and open with plenty of fans so we'll see how I go.

Awesome.

 

Is that Razer Goliath mouse pad the one that is almost as long as an entire desk and has enough space for both the mouse and keyboard to fit on? Did you get it locally? If so I would love to know where from? 

 

The blue lighting looks great as well but what is the red light in the front of the case?

Nah I just got the medium, but DTC.co.nz stock small, medium, large and the big extended one you're talking about. Everything I couldn't find from Computer Lounge during their recent 11% off everything sale I got from DTC and they were really good actually. They didn't have the 2666 RAM I wanted in stock so gave me the 2800 at no extra charge.

 

The red lights are from the two stock fans that came with the case. Debating whether to swap them out for blue, but I'm kind of liking the variation.
