Show us your PC Gaming RIG!

Recommended Posts

Hello and thank you for viewing or taking in the time to read my posts, I know there confusing but just hear me out... =)

 

First I would like to make a shout out to all who game out there on the PC. In the past few years we have seen a massive drop in the interest, of PC gaming. Some gamers out there still believe that PC gaming is still the shizmic, I doubted this for sometime when I purchased the PS3.

 

Don't let this drag on no longer, lets make a stand and put the coolness of PC GAMING back on its toes by posting our insanely kick ass PC RIGS/ gaming rigs. Lets bring atomic back to what we used to talk about most, PC! Rigs, MODS and most of all Speakers. Yes, speakers play a major part however, this is just about 'your rig' for the time being :P

 

The reason why I wanted to do this, is simply because we need to get more noted with PC and gaming. Evidently it will be obvious, that consoles have greater limits as to what the PC can do. Its a fact to be honest... PC can do a shit mega ton more than what a console can do, even if its a display setting or changing the resolution. In the long run however, PC will always be on top of overall quality.

 

So, I would like to introduce a "Show us your PC Gaming rig" topic, for just PC! You may also post a current modified PC, to show us how exactly you get us gamers looking at your hot bits. You follow? Cable management, water cooling and case modifications ect.

 

You may also like to do the following when your posting pictures of your setup,

 

• Your current PC specs.

• What games you mostly play ect.

 

So this is here for optional choice if you wish to add to your post.. You don't have to if you don't want to, just to clear that up.

 

As an extra addition, if you have recently built a new PC gaming rig you can post your PC during its build process. Put these into a WinRAR folder so if you decide to share them in the future it will make this topic remain clean. Or perhaps if you only share a picture of the parts bundled together and perhaps the final build, then the entire PC setup as another option for this topic.

 

I know in the past we have had topics like this, but I would like to start this again and have everyone from the atomic community to step forward and to post their gaming rigs. This can also mean your PC setup does not have to be a gaming, in general as another option. I want to try and get as many of you to post with a few extendable options in which I have created. To basically get some juices flowing in which you can do through out your post :)

 

If you want other atomican's to add you to Windows live & Steam, please visit this topic here - http://forums.atomicmpc.com.au/index.php?showtopic=10662

 

I will try my best to update this topic as much as I can, but if you have a rig and if you find its not displayed underneath "Atomican's PC Rigs" then it is just because I need to update the topic to a recent time.

 

ENJOY and also discuss :)

 

*Edit*

 

Just post them however you like :)

Good idea.

 

I do think over the years Atomic has lost some of it's Atomic-ness - that nitty-gritty hacksaw kind of stuff. What happened to case modding? It's too easy to buy an off the shelf case with LEDs, windows, and a gazillion fans pre-installed. We need to set it up a bit.

 

For me, I just don't have the time for PC Gaming. Though I think for the masses the PC Gaming scene is too complex. From the land of the laid back Aussie where just setting up an Xbox is a job and a half, how are people going to cope with software updates, hardware updates, virus scanners, and formatting????? Exactly!!! Hands up all Atomicans who manage their families (and extended families) PC requirement? Need I say any more.

 

Ok, back on topic...

 

Last games I played:

- GTA4

- Left 4 Dead

 

I think I could find some time once HL2:EP3 or Black Mesa Source arrives =)

 

Ok, specs:

 

(main machine)

Core i7 860 (stock)

8Gb ddr3

GTX260

G.Skill 256gb SSD

plus other non-interesting stuff...

and yes, it has 5 pretty blue LED fans :P

 

EDIT: Nesquick, switch to a LCD monitor, you can then fit more on the desk ;)

What kick ass rig you got there mate. You have the same PSU as me, quite happy working with Corsair PSU's. Does that IceQ4 have LED or is it the UV reactive?

Index, do you use 5.1 with those speakers or Stereo X2?

I use 5.1 currently using a digital optical cable.

 

*Edit.

Must sound a bit weird, change the effect on the speakers to stereo x2 if you can, would sound much better then...Basically 2.1 but with twice the noise!

 

Or go and buy some speaker stands...

It works in 5.1 when playing games and movies that support it and 2.1 when listening to music... I have tried the x2 setting but it sounds very weird, like I noticed the sub is not as powerful as apposed to the 2.1 when listening to music. Sounds good in games tho and yes I might invest in some speaker stands.

Don't use Stereo x2. That's rubbish. You've got the PLII Music effect there for music.

Stereo X2 would be better for games simply for the fact that he has the rear speakers next to his front. And imo stereo x2 sounds better than the PLII music function for music aswell.

 

But then again im not much of an audiophile :P

 

Yeah, whats the mobile phone for? :P

 

Also, ever heard of cable management? :P
