Just a thread to see what people prefer to game on and what specs they have. This isn't to create an argument about nvidia vs amd or xbox vs PlayStation.

I7 4790k liquid cooled it was OC'd but not anymore.
16gb Ram
1tb ssd, 120gb ssd for the os, 500gb ssd and a 1tb hdd.
2 x Titan X's in sli each with 12gb vram.
850w evga gold supernova psu.
Corsair vengeance case in white with white led fans.
Logitech G910 keyboard and a logitech G502 proteus core mouse.
Currently playing Arma 3, World of warships and star citizen when it's not crashing.
I'll post some pictures of my setup later on when I'm back from work.
Be cool to see other people's setups console or pc.

Yep, I used pcpartpicker and then got all the parts from Amazon and Newegg. Unfortunately the power supply arrived defective, so I had to order a different one.

I have an Xbox one X, and a regular Xbox one.

The one a bit faster

I'm lucky that I have a really good computer store near me which is a rarity these days. I love building them but always have that fear when you first press the power button.

I have an xbox one but haven't switched it on in over 2 years it's just sat under the TV. I've only got the Master Chief collection for it purely for nostalgic reasons of couch co-op with a mate.

I dont game as much as I used to but I always keep my PCs as gaming rigs since they tend to perform well for everything. Currently using:

Win 10
16gb RAM
GTX 1080
i5 6600k slight OC
500gb SSD/1tb HDD

It was a 2015 rig but I've been upgrading parts here and there over the last few months. I should really buy a new monitor, my rig isn't exactly top of the line but it's a bit wasted on 1080p at the moment.

That's a decent build and is certainly fine for the next few years. Strong gpu and cpu

Win7 Ultimate
Z77A-GD65 (MS-7751) Motherboard
i7 2600k @3.40Ghz CPU
GTX 970
16GB Corsair DDR3 1600 Ram
SSD for OS and Games, several TB on different external harddiscs
Logitech G105 keyboard
Logitech G203 Prodigy gaming mouse(i like it simple and i am left handed xD)
Logitech 4.1 system(because of the extreme bass xD)
Logitech Vengeance 2000 7.1 wireless Headset
Asus VS247 Monitor
NZXT alu case

But the most important thing, for me is the surrounding. I try to imitate "nature, forest, jungle" around my monitor and on my desc. Painted my wall green, a "wall" from the garden made from bamboo in front of it(right behind me monitor and desc). Then i was able to hang flowerpots on that bamboowall, where i could put green plants in. But it´s still under construction, need more of these special flwoerpots and waaay more plants. I want to have a feeling of being in the forest, if i play survival games(had an Arma3 Exile server a while ago, for example).

Sorry, i am not a photographer, so i don´t have a camera. And i am wearing a tinfoil hat all the time, so i don´t use spyPhones, just simple mobile phones with bad cameras, otherwise i would have posted a picture.

Nice no worries about the pics.

PS hope I haven't killed you on exile

Interesting that everyone pc wise is the Intel/nvidia so far.

Ha, don´t think so, server was password protected xD

But i loved it, needed me months of my life but at the end i had a really good survival game there. With hundreds of crafting recipes, you had to gather stone from rocks or walls(several tools needed, that first had to be found or crafted), metal and stuff too. You could loot almost everything, even steal the clothes from the clotheslines.

But it is too much work for only one person, sometimes up to 14 or more hours a day(or night) of working at the server. When it was "ready"(you are never!), nobody of my gaming mates that wanted me to create such a server came to play(you know, they all have just to play the newest and most expensvie games, to be up to date, doesn´t matter how bad they are xD)

Now i have build a Rust server(a joke compared to setting up an Arma server xD), just for fun, and with a bit more survival feeling and less "Counter Strike" or "PUBG". With humanity system and a jail, for "KOS heroes"(24 real time jail for senseless killing, 3 times jail - lifetime server ban). We started to test play it yesterday and it´s still under construction, but playable, as it seems.

Yeah I had a exilez server and the a3xai mod running as well so it was zombies and enemy Ai. You'd finally get it all working after altering loads of the pbos and then people would get the battleye kick and then have to go through all the code again such a ball ache at times.

I loved A3XAI, the vehicle patrols, the AI, heli patrols. Had no zombies or stuff, like it a bit more real.
So i had cops, military, other survivors, missions and millions of things installed. You neede to repair your vehicles and stuff, needed to pay for fuel, there were occupied ares/cities/towns etc. You could play it alone and never felt alone, but as i said, really too much work. I have the backup still somewehre, if you want to have it(or parts of it), there are really many, many crafting recipes, for example.

And best tip: Put a passwort on your server, play only with people you trust, then you can switch of battleeye. With baatleye enabled i would be bulding till today and woukd be not ready yet, after two years or similiar.... xD

That's exactly what we did in the end just turned battleye off and passworded it. We loved exile just over played it in the end. It gets to a point where you have your base the vehicles you need and there's not much else to do. The first few hours are the best where you're looting and exploring.

I'm a console gamer thru and thru.

Current systems:

Xbox One
Wii U
RetroPie setup

I have an old rig that I used to dabble a bit on but the limitations were frustrating at times. Now a days, I just don't bother.

Windows 10 64bit
Intel Core2 Duo
4mb DDR3 Ram
Nvidia GTX 750 card

Pathetic I know lol.

Nothing wrong with that you can always upgrade it bit by bit if you wanted. I used to console game quite a lot and was in a fairly large clan on the 360 we even go featured in the official xbox mag about 12 years ago.

That´s what i tried to prevent, also on the Rust server now, i made it all a bit harder, more real, so to say. For building my one building base on the exile server i needed three real time weeks, till it was concrete and stuff. I re-wrote all the recipes and made u use more stuff, like you would need in reality too, more tools, more materials. It was really work but not a grind.

Nowadays, imo, it´s all made to easy in games, for a fast success, because the people nowadays play games for several hours and then they buy new games and play them for several hours. If they don´t have fast success, they only play for several minutes and rate the games down. That´s why most games nowadays feel like made for only kids, as sad as it is.

Very disappointed about how game launches have been the past 2-3 years. Incomplete and broken games being sold to the masses.

Especially since Internet patches became the norm. You used to get paid to test games now we pay to test them for companies.
