PC Builds


What’s your pc build?

Mine is:
AMD Phenom II 965 3.4 GHZ (Overclocking at 3.9 GHZ ;D)
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3gb
8gb DDR3
micro-ATX A880gz motherboard (hate this thing)


Intel Core i7-3610 permanently overclocked to 2.7 GHz
16 GB Crucial DDR 3 SDRAM (4x4)
1 TB 7200 rpm SATA HD
512 MB Solid State Boot Drive for basic Gentoo boot/small split scratch directories
Nvidia GTX 460 1.5 GB (Trying to use this to power some good code. GPU’s are useful for parallelization. Not much gaming :frowning: )
Gentoo/Ubuntu/Windows 7 Triple boot
Blu-ray Write drive


Intel Core i5-3570k
16GB of… ummm… some sort of memory. :wink:
2TB drive, 1.5TB drive (mostly mirrored critical backups and some scratch files)
80GB SSD for boot and OS. Could use bigger sometimes.
AMD Radeon HD 6570, coz I don’t play from games.


80GB SSD and you want more! How are your door locks these days? I’d love to be able to increase my read/write speeds with a large SSD. :frowning: Thank goodness some lovely people help me out with cluster time on occasion…


80GB is pretty small for an SSD these days. That can be had for about $70! I want bigger because I’m too lazy to install programs anywhere but their default path which is always on C: drive. I run out of space fairly often and have to uninstall stuff! And I don’t have that much installed to begin with other than bloated ol pigging Adobe PS, Lightroom, and Illustrator.
