    When people walk into my home office / gaming center, people often ask me "Wow! What's in that thing?!". The "oohs" and "ahhhs" are partially attributed to the green lights that bath my desktop's tower, but more so to the quality of the graphics in games that I can run. By today's bleeding edge standards, my computer isn't that spectacular. However, the actual gaming experience is pretty sublime.

    Here's a list of what it contains:
    Coolermaster 690 Nvidia Edition Desktop Tower
    Intel Core i5-750
    Nvidia GTX 470 graphics card (EVGA edition)
    8gb Corsair Ram
    750 watt Corsair power supply
    EVGA FTW motherboard
    Samsung 24" LED LCD

    What does your PC contain?

    Hah, come on now, I have a humble little Chromebook, but it's doing an amazing job at showing me all the websites that I want to see. :)

    Seriously, most people just don't care about specs anymore. I used to build my own PCs with tricked out components (especially video cards), but at some point I realized that it's just not worth the money. The value is now placed on power efficiency and compactness, not how many polygons your silicon can push.

    I would have to disagree!

    If you are just using your computer for the average tasks such as
    • YouTube Videos
    • Emailing
    • Internet Browsing
    and other simple tasks, then I understand where you are coming from.

    However, if you are a hardcore gamer, it makes a huge difference! Each compenent needs to be in line with the next so that your computer doesn't experience a bottleneck and ruin your gaming experience. I believe in building powerful but balanced computers. Not only can you choose the exact parts you want to use to create a balanced desktop machine, but it is also often times much cheaper!

    Many times when you go to build a computer at an online shop, to upgrade one thing, you must upgrade another. I really dislike how companies do this in order to force you to spend money on unnecessary parts. Video cards are the heart of and sole of any gaming rig, but they also should be inline with your other parts. There is no point spending $700 on a graphic card if you only plan to spend $1000 overall. However, it makes a lot of sense to spend $350 on a very decent gaming graphics card for the $1000 computer. Often times to reach the same specifications and the corresponding FPS for games, you need to spend as much as $2000!

    Again, it all depends on what you plan to do. Browse, email, and watch videos? Or run high intensity graphic games at a solid 60 FPS!

    The choice, is yours.

    I have a few computers in my household, but for this post I will talk about the one that I am actually typing this message from. It is a MacBook from 2007. Although it is six years old now, it is still surprisingly fast and usable in today's web 2.0 world. Here are the specifications:
    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    Memory: 2 GB

    It's lightweight, strong in build quality, and gets everything done except for hardcore gaming!

    I've got a Samsung..something. not sure of the model, its lots of numbers and letters.
    Win7
    Intel-i5 3210M @ 2.50 GHz (2 cores, 4 threads)
    6 GB Ram
    500GB HD

    does the job for me

    Processor : Core2Duo 2.66 GHZ
    Memory : 6 Gb (2x2 and 2x1). Its Corsair memory, I believe.
    Power Supply : 450 watts from Cooler Master
    Video Card : ATI Sapphire radeon 4890 OC edition, 1gb ddr5
    Hard disks : 1x 120Gb SSD from Corsair and a 1tb hdd from Western Digital.
    Motherboard : Asus P5b
    Screen : Iiyama 22 inch
    Case : Cooler master centurion 5

    It's getting a bit old, but it still does it's job. The only video game that I am not able to play properly is Battlefield 3. For some reason I get incredible low frames when I am near buildings. Other then that, smooth sailing.
    Maybe I should buy a new PC or upgrade, but I do not play Battlefield 3 very much.. and to upgrade just for one game? Not worth it in my opinion.
    Anyway, that's a nice rig you got there seventy1!

    At the moment, all I've got is a little ASUS laptop, it's not particularly powerful, but it gets the job done.
    Specifications are as follows:
    Dual Core i5 2.5gHz Processor
    NVIDIA 610M 2gb Graphics
    8gb RAM
    That's about all the info I can provide.
    As I said earlier, it's not the best, not particularly powerful, but it does what I need it to.

    I am a wishful hardcore gamer and developer. My current setup is a Dell Dimension 2400, which is about as powerful as my DROID RAZR HD when compared. Even so my cell phone has more gaming capability than this Dell rig as its a Droid from many years later (almost 10 as a matter of fact). Many people cannot even begin to afford even the bottom of the line upgrades for our computers. I would love to have the hardware that you have. I have a vast knowledge of a computer whether running or not. I am blessed with all this knowledge and all this skill and joy in what I do yet the most expensive system I have owned is a modern Droid at roughly 350.00. I don't know how you afford it, the cost of such upgrades is ridiculous. I have seen computers going for less than a single one of your components costs.

    Specs of my laptop:
    ASUS K43SM
    Windows 8 Pro x64
    Intel i5-2450m (2.50-3.1 Ghz)
    Nvidia GeForce GT 630m
    4gb ddr3 1333 Mhz
    750gb 7200rpm
    I'm planning to build my own desktop computer after I graduate which I will use mainly for gaming. You don't really need a PC with high specs. As long as it does what you need it to do, then that will do.

    I decided to build my own computer in the early months of 2011. The parts I selected are as follows:

    Motherboard: Asus M4A89TD PRO
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition
    Memory: 8GB of G.Skill RipJaws
    Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 6850 Overclocked
    Power Supply: Corsair HX650

    By today's standards, it's no longer considered very powerful. But it still runs most games quite nicely.
