We spend a lot of time reviewing and recommending parts to you guys, but we rarely get a chance to find out what parts you ultimately go with. We thought we'd change that today with a new Friday night topic. Our topic question is simple: what are the specs of your desktop PC(s)?
Here, I'll kick things off with my own, somewhat decrepit desktop rig:
Processor: Core i5-750
Motherboard: Gigabyte P55-UD3R
Memory: 8GB Kingston DDR3-1333
Graphics: Asus Radeon HD 6870
Storage: 1x Crucial C300 256GB, 2x 320GB WD Caviar SE16 (RAID1), 2x 1TB WD Caviar Green (RAID1)
PSU: Corsair HX450
Case: Corsair 600T
Yeah, yeah, I know. I need to upgrade. The thing is, I use my much faster (and pretty much always up-to-date) GPU test rig to play games. My main desktop is essentially an Excel, Photoshop, text editing, and web browsing workhorse, so I don't feel much of an upgrading itch—especially with 8GB of RAM and an SSD under the hood.
What about you guys? Do you all have state-of-the-art gaming PCs, or are you laggards like me?
