    Show Off Your Rig!

    As the title implies, here is the place to show off your sweet gaming rig. If possible, please include some images (nothing too huge) and some specs.

    I'll start!


    I call her the Relentless and this is actually the first rig I've built for myself. I used a laptop through most of university and high school.

    She's rocking an Intel i5-4690k and 16 GB of DDR3 memory, though her heart and soul is the brand new Geforce GTX 970 4 GB model I bought. She's sporting a 128 GB SiliconPower solid state drive and a 2 TB Seagate hard disk drive for data storage. All this hardware is mounted on a Asus Z97-Pro motherboard and powered by a Corsair CX600M model power supply. The whole thing is packed inside a Corsair C70 case with a Blu-Ray drive. Peripherals are a Razer Deathstalker Chroma keyboard, a Razer Mamba Tournament Edition mouse, and my personal favorite, one Oculus Rift DK2 which was a graduation gift from my family.

    Loving that case man, nice specs too.

    Here's my specs, I'll try and get a pic at some point, although it's nothing special.

    I had a GTX 680 before but it had been dying since the start. I picked up a 950 for about 100 quid and it's not much different performance wise.
    All of this controlled via a Microsoft 600 keyboard and a second hand RAT 7 mouse

    My Rig

    No pictures because the overall look is pretty boring. Nothing fancy but I like the insides.

    All liquid cooled BTW.

    Mine is quite boring to look at Even the inside is boring for most people, but it sure does run every game I throw at it. Initially I did not build the pc for gaming at all, but for rendering images, I'm an artist. Later on we updated it a little so it can play games as well. We actually never directly play games on the pc, but always stream them to our laptops.

    Specs..... i7 3770 3.4Ghz, 16Gb Ram, Sata 500Gb and a GTX 750 Ti 2Gb. Since a few days it runs Windows 10 64bit. I'll be adding a new hard drive pretty soon, the current one is getting a bit too full.

    Cool read. Also very helpful when we need to contact some of you with specific GPUs / configs.

    I waited 4 years for the technology to jump ahead and buy something serious for great price, and ended up buying 3-year old tech for the same price, since dollar was super low back then compared to our currency.

    Anyway, AMD FX-8320E VISHERA, MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G, 8 GB RAM, it plays everything well so far.

    I cut corners when getting the case, and in order to install the front fan (it's true what they say, R9 does heat like hell) I had to do some additional corner cutting.
