Post your computer specs!~ - Page 108

post #1606 of 2045

You will definitely be happy with the Alienware, mine is three years old but can still hold its own to much newer laptops when it comes to gaming and handles every game I throw at it.  They are built like tanks and meant to last, sounds like a good setup, but report back on what you think of it when you get it.

post #1607 of 2045

My current desktop config:

 

Intel i5 2500k @ 4 Ghz

Gigabyte P67-UD3-B3 mobo

Crosair XMS3 DDR3 1600 Mhz 8Gb

OCZ Vertex 2 60 Gb SSD for OS

Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB HDD for data

Asus GTX670 Direct CUII 2 Gb @ 1035/7200

ViewSonic vx2250vm 1080p LED

Audigy 2 ZS with kx Project drivers + any of my cans for sound

Cheap, crappy generic case, mouse, keyboard (lol, don't care about these things)

post #1608 of 2045

I can't upload pics from work, so I'll try to remember to do that later. Maybe. But here are specs:

 

Intel Core i5-760 @ 4.0GHz

Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R

2x2048MB OCZ Reaper HPC PC3-10666

Sapphire HD5870 Eyefinity6

M-Audio Audiophile 2496

Western Digital 6400AAKS (Windows 7 Ultimate)

Western Digital WD20EARX (general data)

Western Digital 1TB of unrecalled model (music)

Lite-On external USB DVD­±RW

Seasonic X-560

Danger Den Q20 ("Abyss" ATX, dual bay front)

 

Cooling provided by:

EK Waterblocks HF-1 Supreme

Danger Den DD5870

HWLabs Black Ice SR-1

Laing DDC3.2

XSPC BayRes Two, single

Scythe S-Flex SFF-21F (x3)

And an indeterminate length of 7/16" ID Masterkleer

 

I have a 2x4096MB module kit of Crucial PC3-stupidlyfasterthanIneed en route from Newegg as I write this, as the lowest memory multiplier that Gigabyte provides is x6, which effectively limits BLCK overclocks to ~190MHz. Hopefully, I'll break 4.5GHz on this CPU then. It's good to at least 4.6...

You're in Washington? There is a Fry's about 20 miles south of Portland, in Wilsonville. I have no idea if that's actually any more convenient for you, but it's something...

Let me know how it runs crysis, always interesting to see how my aging system competes with newer ones.

Unmodded Crysis isn't worth running!  

post #1613 of 2045

My comp eats Crysis for breakfast.

post #1614 of 2045

My computer can run Crysis 2 with the patch for ultra graphics, the HD texture pack, and Maldo's HD texture pack at 50 FPS, not bad considering the graphics cards are 2 years old and it has an AMD Phenom II X4, mind you they are all heavily overclocked and water cooled.

post #1615 of 2045

I don't actually own Crysis and not too sure when I'll get to it haha. I'll be running NFS Most Wanted, Skyrim, GTA IV, Mass Effect 3, and a couple others. And it's all arriving tomorrow! Already told everyone to leave me alone tomorrow lol :P.

Make sure to check out all the graphics/texture mods for Skyrim/GTA/ME3.  You don't want to fail to impress your console playing friends with your vastly superior graphics.

post #1618 of 2045
I play Skyrim with like 30 mods at the moment. The only one that has killed my performance so far was Skyrim HD. But then again, I am already playing at 1440p, so...

GTX 580 SLI
i7 3820 @ 4.5GHz
8 GB of ram
etc.
post #1619 of 2045

3 socket 775 pc's and 1 NAS running WHS.  2 pc's are XP, 1 is Win8.  Keyboard & mouse are physically connected to an XP pc, but control that XP and the WIN8 pc via MaxiVista software, and the other XP pc via logmein.com.  Win8 pc has sound card (Omega Claro Plus), USB to an Ayre DAC, and jRiver Media Center software player.  Music files all stored on NAS as .flac.
