Show us your PC Gaming RIG!

Recommended Posts

Then you'd have no centre speaker.

 

I'd rather just take the rear speakers off than use X2.

 

 

The phone is there to hold up my gfx card. Seems to be a loose connection to the Mboard, coz even the slightest wiggle I lose video and then the PC freezes. Every couple of days it will still do it, so I have to take the phone out and put it back in and it's right again. Fucking annoying really!

 

I don't know whether it's the Mboard connection or the card.

 

 

It's actually suprisingly difficult to manage the cables any better than that. Anyway, I made sure that there's a clear path for airflow.

 

In the future I'm gonna make my own case and set it up so there won't be any clutter and air flow will be at a maximum.

 

 

 

 

Also, updated my post with a desktop pic.

Thats a P182 right? You should be able to get the 24 pin atx lead around the back of the motherboard tray right?

 

I know that cable management on the back is a pain in the ass as the door sits flush on the stupid foam sound dampening strips, but it is possible.

 

Also, dasa, you've cleaned your desk since I was over last? :o

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?

It's UV, but I don't have any UV lights... or any lights, as my case doesn't have a window, just a big ass 200mm fan.

Wow my rig is out of date and boring. But it does the job for me! At least until I am no longer a student and can afford the setup dreams are made of...

 

Athlon X2 @ 2.8 GHz

4 gb Corsair XMS2 @ 800 MHz

HD4850

Cable management: non-existent

Cooling: Thermaltake Blue Orb, fan broken, LEDs disconnected

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

Core2 Quad 8200 - 2.33GHz

4GB OCZ

GTX 280

2x 1.5TB Seagate

1x 200GB Seagate

Auzentech Prelude

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

 

Haha.... I just noticed the remote detonator... ASIO won't know what hit them!

Index, your room looks like a jail cell. You should put bars on the windows and a big poster of a 1950's pin up on the wall. Then you can start to burrow out without anybody knowing!

 

And don't forget to scratch your name into the wall. :P

While it's nice that people assume I did have good ol' rig back in the day. Mines actually a pre-built computer "that the whole family can use" (parents words not mine).

 

It can barely run many newly released or high spec games (Far Cry 2? I wish. AVP? Bahahahahahahaha. Crysis? *tears of laughter*).

 

But I'm trying extra hard to be able to buy a brand new PC (pre-built or BYO) after Year 12 ends.

 

*fingers crossed*

lol.

 

I repainted the room from blue to white. A good thing about brick walls is, when its hot during the day it remains cool in my room and my folks are like blazing hot upstairs. I got a few posters and huge movie banners I can put up around the place :)

 

 

Here are my Retro setups from my old PC.

 

Began from this.

Index he was only suggesting you could tunnel out shawshank redemption style, not really having a go at your actual living conditions per se.
