Post your computer specs!~

    Just added a new monitor to the mix, an Acer XR341CK and I'm so lovin' it.
    It's hooked up to my main gaming rig (i7 3960X + 2x 290X) as well as another rig (FX8350 + HD7970) which can handle light gaming and for watching movies. No pie for guessing what movie is on the pic below...

    Sweet Monitor! I need an upgrade myself (handed off 2 of my monitors to my son).  Is that a scene from Prometheus?

    Give the man a well-deserved pie! I'm really enjoying myself gaming and watching movies. Below is the exact same scene without cropping, ignore the black bars on the sides as you won't see them on a 16:9 monitor, but the dreaded black bars on top and below will be visible on 16:9 monitors though.

    OT: Anyone here play MAME on a ultra wide 21:9 monitor??  Does it keep the lo-res aspect ration in the middle of the screen or does it try and stretch it out?
    I really want a UW but the things I do I am not sure its the best choice for it

    Since I have been gaming less on my PC and have been coerced to play on the PS4 with friends and family, my computer should be going strong for quite some time as well. I still want to get one of those Mammoth 34" Ultra Wide screens though.

    Out of curiosity is there visible/perceived trend/correlation to headphones/DACs/AMPs/brands and PC hardware here?  Other than possibly just general higher pc price = higher audio gear price?

    Implementation is key, and it's up to the manufacturer to decide how much priority is given to audio. Low end pcs might have a smaller budget, so their designs might neglect audio fidelity. High end pcs might be targeting different people, so even if they mention their audio implementation, it's just marketing. They often are more than willing to sacrifice audio for other features, especially with custom built pcs, where a lot of it is at the mercy of the builder anyways. In my case, my pc was noisy as hell. Then I moved a cable about two centimeters and it is now cleaner than my dedicated dac.
    My budget laptop from 5 years ago is still the king though. :p Again, it's all in the implementation, not the price they slapped on.
    Of course, even in the audio gear industry, higher price doesn't really mean better fidelity, and better fidelity definitely does not mean better sounding.

    I don't mean the integrated audio in their PC, I mean correlation between peoples PC specs and their other independent audio hardware eg headphone dedicated amps/dacs etc as a whole.

    My apologies for misreading.


    Well, you are on Head-Fi after all. People here actually give a damn about audio, where as most people in the planet don't even know this is a thing. :wink:

    I run a PC with an r9 390 and an i5-4690k. My preferred setup is my PC's onboard audio and a pair of Phillips SHE3590.
