Intrepidation

Your PC Specs + Photos

Since at least some of us are tech savvy and enjoy PC building, what do you have for a rig?

This was mine until I finished building my new PC earlier this year and was my second ground up build. When when I first built it in 2006 it had the following specs:


Raidmax Sagitta Case
Seagate Barracuda ST3320620AS 320GB HDD
Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H Motherboard
Foxconn GeFore 7950GX2 GPU
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor 2.4 GHz Dual Core CPU
Corsair XMS2 2GB (2x 1GB) DDR2 800 RAM
Silverstone ST60F 600W PSU
Samsung DVD/CD Combo Drive
Lite-On CD Burner
Windows XP 32 Bit

Its gone through a few major upgrades including:

ASUS PCE-N13 Wireless Adapter
2x LG GH22N550 DVD Burner
Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P Motherboard
AMD Phenom II 925 Deneb Quad Core CPU
Western Digital WD1001FALS 1T HDD
G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB (4x 4GB) DDR3 1600 RAM
EVGA 896-P3-1262-AR GTX 260 Superclocked

For a little while it ran with the pictured GTX 970 which was the first component I got for the upcoming build. Big performance jump just by doing that.

Very cool, I used to enjoy building from scratch my own desktops and now later in life due to family, senior parents, etc. I review for the best workstation class unit around and max it out with memory, SSD boot drives that are mirrored for failover capability and a decent raid set for my data which really boils down to my controller card making mirror copies of the drives so I can always access my data fast.

Ugh, Apple is what I leave in the garbage. Stuff is terrible, lousy interface and just not enterprise friendly. But then they did make their product for those that want to be directed in what they can do.

I will stick with Intel based systems running windows or Linux. Real Enterprise working machines.

Some day I'll get back to PC building again... I just have a Lenovo X1 Carbon laptop for work and an HP Elitebook for personal.

I have an older Lenovo X220 sitting around that I might try and turn into a hackintosh just for the fun of it.
