I only changed my cpu fan because the old cheap one I had was rattling like a hoover sucking up pebbles and it was either it goes, or... I regret my alternative options.

I ended up getting one of thise, IceEdge 200T (deep cool) and let me tell you, I thought those pushpin types that you have on yours were a pain in the backside to plug in without either feeling you're breaking the mobo or the actual plastic separators that secure it... this.. this thing..

It just sits there... I can actually move it without much effort.. .I know it's on there OK as I do push this to extremes a lot of the time and have kept close eyes on the temps, but.. yeesh. talk about unnerving for the first few hours.

Man, I want your mousepad! D3 coming out in 4 days!

My gear is a few years old, i bought it used from a co-worker last year sometime. It works perfectly fine and is really good for what it is. I don't have the money to upgrade right now. But i can almost play anything maxed.

Specs:

Intel Core2Quad Q9550 2.83Ghz @ 3.6Ghz
Asus p5q Motherboard
4gb OCZ Reaper
120gb Corsair Force 3
3tb of random storage
ATI Radeon 5870 Vapor-X Edition
CoolerMaster Haf 942X Full-Tower case (HUGE)

I don't have any pictures of it right now, suffice it to say that what women say about big black things? applies to my computer ;D

Like a ford Vs holden right?

So whats the specs on your 486sx ya got running there sport! : P


hahaha
many years ago
i upgraded from an sx to a dx
god i feel old


You didn't actually buy a new mobo did you??
the DX had a co-processor support chip you could by separate and install yourself.

My old man was always scounging things off people, would come home with video blaster cards, 486 dx2 @ 99mhz, a cd rom that had a caddy you had to eject and put the cd into, I even at one point had an SCSI Hard Drive interface that had 2 megs cache on board, and 2 320mb scsi hard drives.

I was flying... lol.. then it all disappeared along with many of my youthful days.. Now when I see 5 year olds with ipads, I wanna cry...

looks pretty cool, id love to give water a go, but.. i dunno the cost outweighs the enjoyment ya know?

$1k for a box if you got a few of the parts is enough to get a system capable of playing bf3 or diablo3...

Im building one for the room mate atm full setup came to 1200AU i think...

what were your games in the day?

I remember Commander keen, Skunny Kart, Police Quest.....

K, seing as though no-one lese has posted any pics of their rig/s I thought I'd better add some eye candy for bragging rights(although there is ALOT better systems out there today than what I own).

The best of rigs. One could bring NASA down in a heartbeat with this baby.


No, but seriously this is my main rig:
INDISE:

OUTSIDE:
I've invested in a new desk now which is not in this pic as it was taken a few months ago, this desk I made to get me through until I found a desk big enough to fit all my goodies. I've also moved house in that time, and looking back at this photo I thank GOD I dont hav to look at that green carpet anymore.


2nd rig:
This I use for torrents and other things.

I've got another 3 computers in my house(including a HTPC) but they arent really worthy of a photo. Yes I like my computers
, but I havent updated anything for over 6months, I might even wiat another 6 months until I lash out on some new goodies as updating more than every year brings very little gain in performance.

Well, dont ask, the wife might see me typing this lol, hmm ball park figure for my main rig would be around $4,500 at the time of purchasing each item(4x6970's, 3 x 26" screens, and the list goes on) if buying today you could get what I have for less of course. My 2nd rig would be worth over $2000, the other 3 computers in the house would be worth around $1000 each, lets just say I've pumped over $10,000 into just the computers in my house over the last 2ish years. Then theres the 2 x 60" TV's, one 42" tv, amps, speakers etc, etc, so maybe I've pumped around $20K into audio and visual in the last 2-3 years(which includes my computers of course), but I still dream of getting bigger and better, thats just the way man is I guess(well most of us anyway). Hey I need all that to read my morning dose of ATS before I go to work, hehe.

the stand on the corona in the 2nd pick could easily be used as a handle making it ultra portable, I'd just use that bad boy as my laptop, screw using that piece of crap in the bottom photo

Ahh I can play BF3 decently, MW3 etc.. I have to turn things down, but as long as I can get over 80fps in most games, I don't mind.

The bottle neck with my rig is the cpu, a q6600 at 2.4ghz. I did have a period where I actually physically overclocked the cpu by using a small strand of copper speaker wire (believe it or not) and sticky tape to short the bsel pins and allow the mobo to run at 1333fsb over the 1066fsb. Too unstable and I'm too paranoid so abandoned that idea.


Ahh yeah I'm in AU also, so was surprised to see prices for things I'd thought about 2 years ago, within range!

Man, back in the day, yep Commander Keen, Duke Nukem (the scroller game, similar to Keen, and then the 3D one), star control 2 - spent ages on that and still have it as it's free to download now using the 3DO emulator.. Wolfenstien 3D, so many dos games that had no real rendering but were still heaps of fun..

And then when I had 2 video blasters connected together (no such thing as sli, 2 pci slots and connected via a dongle outside the case, lol) getting the first smooth 3D graphics was insane.. Decent 1 in rendered 3D was so pretty back then.

Nuke War was also one of those games that seemed to be played non stop back then, should I save my money, propagandise the enemy, steal their citizens, or launch a nuke on them.. comical fun.

Or Jones in the Fast lane, haha.. I'm going to start drooling remembering all these.. Unlike real life, Jones could go to work semi nude.. that's what you get when you can't afford clothes.

I really do miss those old days when the games were fun instead of epic stories that you spend more time watching than playing, or when if you wanted to crack a game, you didn't need to load funky boot loaders in windows to allow debuggers to run, and just loaded it in debug from dos.

oops rambling..

Well it's funny you bring up PC's. I was a gamer for many years with a PC that just was able to play newer games with medium settings. Then last year I built what I consider mid-hi PC, and since then I kinda lost interest in playing games. I force myself to play for like 15 minutes then get bored and go online to look for ufo/alien/conspiracy related material, go figure....

Core I7
ASUS Sabertooth X-58 mobo
XFX 5850
6GB Corsair Dominator
850w Antec HCP
Creative X-FI Titanium
Bose speakers
CM Storm Sniper case

I'll try to post a pic later
