So, I will be building a new computer for gaming. I will post later all the specs for it, but this is essentially Gokorahn's old thread "What's in yours?"

EDIT:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345017

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130662

Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125476

Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113328

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233367

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236339

OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832416776

EDIT: Ok so I ordered everything, but I will probably be adding this:

SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-147-247

EDIT: Not enough money xD Decided to buy some games from steam instead...(Arma 3, Skyrim, Starbound, Garry's Mod)

Here he is, the beast:

Intel core 2 duo 2.4ghz
2gb ddr2 800mhz
Ati radeon 2400xt 128mb ddr3

30fps on minecraft and runs pretty much nothing, but it's working.

Processor: Intel i7 3630QM 2.4 up to 3.6 GHz w/turbo, quadcore.
RAM: 16GB DDR3
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M w/2GB dedicated RAM to graphics
Storage: 2, 750GB HDD=1.5TB Hard Drive @ 7,200 RPM And also has a mini SSD built in too boost start up speed.

I don't have many plans for my laptop, because it runs everything quite smoothly, but I may upgrade the processor if I don't overclock it. And I plan on exchanging one of my 750GB hard drives for a decent solid states drive to run faster.

I average about 30 fps on Arma 3 with ultra settings, minecraft I get anywhere from 200-450 fps, it varies constantly.

For now, here are my specs.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
RAM: 8.00 GB DDR3
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7570 Features
Storage: 1 TB

I run vanilla Minecraft at about 220+ FPS, while running the Nanoblock modpack at roughtly 120+ FPS. I'll be upgrading my motherboard soon, along with my graphics card and will probably double my current amount of RAM installed.

You guys should post how many cores your Intel Core iX CPUs are. I hate naming conventions that don't make it apparent. That's why I liked the Athlon, Athlon II, Phenom and Phenom II CPU lines. Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad also fall into this "obviously X cores" lineup.


At any rate...

CPU: AMD Phenom II x6 1100T 3.3 GHz stock, 3.6 GHz "turbo", hexacore
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB 1600 MHz, 4x 4 gig DIMMs
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
HDD:
  • Western Digital WD Blue 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" internal, for OS
  • Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" internal, for data
  • Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3808110AS 80GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" internal, for less important data
  • Seagate 1TB Expansion USB Drive, for data
Graphics: ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5, it's a GeForce 660 with 2 gigs on-board graphics RAM
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Wireless Network: I don't remember, two wireless cards atm. One's an Asus PCE-N15 PCI-e card, the other is a Linksys WPM-something-or-other PCI card, both 802.11 b/g/n enabled, with the Linksys carrying support for 5 GHz 802.11n networks.
PSU: An old-ass XFX 650 watt partially modular power supply unit, it could use replacing but whatever, it works. lol


That's pretty much all there is to say.



I could use a CPU upgrade, to a new AMD CPU. My Phenom II x6 1100T might be the top of the line Phenom II, but it's showing its age. At this point, CPU is my bottleneck. I need a new one. :p

graphics : Nvidia 780 Ti
Ram: 32gb
SSD: 200g? no sure honestly.. forgot
Motherboard: Z-77 Sabertooth - asus
Cooling: liquid loop, silent fans
Case: Phantom (???) by NZXT
Processor: I7-4770K

They are too much for gaming, recommend much lower options, I just render and edit videos for engineering projects for class...

PS: Look into overclocking, if you get the hang of it you will maximize your gaming experience

things such as CAD or other engineering programs are very ram and processor intensive
