Welp, first post on this website.
Anyways, here goes

NVIDIA MSI GTX970 ti
Intel i5-6600k
16GB RAM
Asus Z170 Motherboard
2TB Internal Storage
Corsair 750W PSU, I forget what exact PSU it is.

Welcome! Post again soon! I'm reading that anything 650 watts or over should be fine. My next build will likely have an 850, even though I don't overclock or have multiple graphics cards. Seems to be a sweet spot.

Currently have
CPU I7 2600K
GPU HD 7970
850 Watt Power Supply
16 Gig of RAM DDR3 1333
256 Gig Scandisc SSD
1 TB Seagate x7200 internal
4 TB WD USB 3.0 external (I can run games through it)
I use a 39" Vizio 1080p TV as a monitor.

I hope to upgrade to something with 32 Gig of DDR4, 8 Gig Video card (likely the HD 480 if people stop scalping them and raising the price from MSRP of $240 to $380. Not sure about CPU. I understand games aren't fully utilizing an I7. May go with an I5.

CPU - i7 4771
Motherboard - GA-Z87X-UD4H
RAM - 16GB DDR3 2133 @ CL10
GPU - R9 Nano
OS HDD - Samsung 840 Evo 120GB
Data HDD - 1TB Western Digital Blue
Game HDD - 1TB Western Digital Black
Power Supply - XFX 550w
Case - Corsair Air 540
Monitor 1 - Dell P2416D @75HZ
Monitor 2 - Asus VS239
Monitor 3 - Samsung S22B150

Here's mine, bit scavenged from old parts but runs modern games fantastically at 1080 60fps
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 (yeah not even a K, but this thing still kicks ass)
RAM: 16GB
GPU: GTX 970
HDD: Small array of 2x1TB, 1x2TB drives, no SSD

I got a new PC recently so i'm posting to remind myself what i actually have.

i7-6700K 4ghtz
32GB RAM
GTX 980ti

Side notes, my first time using water cooling, didn't know it had gotten so easy that you can just forget you have it, system files are on an ssd, hard drive for storage, and by far the best feature of this PC which is hot dock bays for 3 hard drives, one being right on f***ing top.


I have lots of files to backup, i highly recommend this.

That's some cool shit! Mind sharing what the case is?

I live in the UK and get my PC stuff from Novatech, it's one of their own products.

Thanks! I live in Indonesia right now, so I doubt I can get Novatech unless shipped somehow. Though I'm sure there are other dock-able cases around! Good inspiration though, data management for hoarders like me is always an issue

Processor: Intel Core i5-4210u
Memory: 8GB DDR3
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 840m /w 2 GB VRAM
SSD: N/A
Main Storage: 1000GB

I got it about 2 years ago to allow me to play some games while I was in college and, while it's starting to fall off a bit compared to other devices, I intend to get another year out of it at least before I upgrade.

Whut? Have you stolen my laptop? That's exactly what I got. EXACTLY

Well, it was a mass produced laptop... ;)

Still, it can run Overwatch and low settings, least on any map that isn't the one with the arcade room spawn, that seems to make it crash :/

The 1070 is a serious card. You should be able to play just about anything at high 4K for a while. What is your monitor?

Are you doing any Virtual Reality stuff? That is the future and what the 1070 really promises. I'm not there yet myself.

If not, what is the most advanced thing you are doing? I'm starting out on Crysis 3 on high settings with the 480, which is not up there with your 1070 but pretty dang impressive. I'm getting about 50 FPS at high using an old i7-930 with the Rx 480. I'm happy for now. 1080P.

You?

Well, I definitely wouldn't describe the 1070 as a 4k card. The 1080 really has that resolution targeted and I'd prefer to step up my processor if I was really going to go for that. Personally, I'm not ready to spend that kind of money on games right now. I only just got the 1070 last week or so but I'm thinking about making some changes. I was running a 770 before and I have a 1080p 144hz monitor. I'm thinking about moving up to a 1440p monitor with one of those overclockable refresh rates up to say 85 or 96hz. I don't think the 1070 will be pulling 144hz @ 1440p for very long anyway and I don't want to overextend myself. Right now I'm really enjoying the frames on this monitor though. Doom everything on ultra hovers around 170-200fps and I've been playing a lot of the Witcher 3 (hairworks and other needless stuff off) and it's buttery smooth. Only going as low as 85 in the densely populated cities usually hanging at 120-130 during regular gameplay. I'm really glad I waited to play Blood and Wine until I got this card.

As for VR I'm not sure. It seems very cool but I'd rather wait for a higher adoption rate and more titles that I'm interested in. I see no reason to pay the early adopter tax when I don't have as much time to play games as I would like already. Have you had any experience with VR? I've read good things and the guys at PC Gamer have spoken highly of it on their podcast but I've never had a chance to check it out.

That 480 is no slouch and for the price you can't beat it. I typically buy Nvidia cards and I had some extra cash lying around so I wanted to get something with a little more oomph. solid overclock too. I can probably turn the memory up more but my core clock is stable with an extra 120mhz and my memory is at +100 as well. For a card that's already factory overclocked I'm pretty pleased. I really hope you enjoy that 480! I played Crysis 3 some time ago and that game is still has some of the most gorgeous visuals I've ever seen. Add me on Steam! Same name- JUMBO PALACE

Yeah, buddy at work bought it for only $240 but bench tested it against his GTX 970 and found it so similar in performance he decided to see if I wanted it. It replaced a GTS 250 with one gig of DDR3 DX 10 capable. Night and day with the 8 Gig of DDR5 DX12 capable. That PC is hooked up to a 55" 120 hz LED TV. My main PC has a I7-2600k with an HD 7970 with 3 Gig of DDR5 DX 11 capable and is hooked up to a 39" 60 hz LED TV. I use a Corsair headset but I've never gamed with anyone on line before. I look forward to checking it out! (Just paid $15 for Humblebundle that came with Battleborn and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel). I will add you ASAP. I have 2 accounts so that my kids can play at the same time as me: puddinnh and weldsj.
ITMT: with the 1070 4K may play at a lower FPS than you want, but according to this guy, it will work:

Wow that's quite the jump in performance. Glad to hear you're pleased! Oh and I realized we already talked about this in my thread about thinking about buying a 1070 (guess we know how that ended up going).

Thanks for the video. As of right now, like I mentioned above, I don't really want to spend the cash for a 4k monitor and I'd rather have a smaller jump in detail with higher frames than 4k @30fps. Just personal preference really. I'm not a super competitive 144hz OR NOTHING kind of guy, but I really appreciate the 60+ smoothness. Hopefully we have a few games in common and can link up sometime!

I know I need to get in there and dust but sadly I've not had the time recently in order to take it all apart.

Edit: and yes, my cable management sucks.

Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3 GHz

ASUS SABERTOOTH X99 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Memory (2x, so 64GB DDR4 RAM)

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-1996-KR 6GB HYBRID GAMING, "All in One" No Hassle Water Cooling, Just Plug and Play Graphics Card

Samsung 850 EVO 2.5? 1TB SATA III 3-D vertical internal ssd MZ-75E1T0B/AM

WD Black 5TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5001FZWX (2 of these)

CORSAIR HXi Series HX1000i 1000W 80 PLUS PLATINUM Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply with C-Link Monitoring and Control

The jokes on the Reddit PCMasterRace board when I posted it were "$400 CPU, $40 cooler. I, too, like to live dangerously." And a joke about the price of the system, but it's a $100 case (which is huge, tons of room in there).

Yes. Yes, it does.

Also stock Intel CPU cooler. Like me, you must like to live dangerously.

CPU: 3.20 gigahertz Intel Core i5-4460 (oc'd to 4.5gh)

GPU: R9 AMD 290 - reference card, runs hot, very, very hot, cook eggs hot... but is also by a country mile best value card I've owned, it's still churning out 40+ FPS on 1440p with no issues with most games (FU - Tomb Raider though :( )

Monitor - AOC G2770PF 27" Full HD FreeSync Monitor (love this), Samsung T27A550 27 inch Widescreen LED (this annoys me because the colours are better than my other monitor but at lower res and no freesync)

SSD: I have a Samsung 120 GB (Win 8) and a Samsung 220GB (Win 10 - Enterprise - I do not use this, Enterprise does not update, I need to reinstall Win 10 Pro - if fact that my weekend task!)

HDD: 6 x 250gb to 500gb drives with various Win installs, 2 used as dumps for films, games etc. (don't ask why)

RAM: 16GB (Corsair Vengeance 16GB)

PSU: Corsair TX750

Case: Not sure, buil5 like a bomb shelter

Motherboard: AsusZ97-P

Sound: Sound Blaster Z (feel the power of modernity)

Cooling: Some sort of water cooling pump I made my Dad buy me for Christmas

Optical: Lol

I am going to have an overhaul soon. This weekend I am removing the HDDs apart from my dump drives. I really want a new graphics card but because of the FreeSync I am tied to AMD but they seem to be refusing to update their range, the 480 is great but actually pretty much comparable with my R9 and I refuse to spend ?500 on a Fury X when it's (so say) going to be superseded very soon. Don't suppose anyone has seen anything about the new top tier of AMD cards?

Your processor may bottleneck anything above that GTX 670.

Great card though: http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+670&id=35

Should last you though the current gen. I have a 7970 which is similar. I have Battlefield 1 and it plays smoothly as long as I dumb down the settings just a little bit. You'd hardly notice.

I don't mind, I tend to not play the latest games anyway. I bought that system as a second hand, and it came with a horrible psu and case, so replaced those. I'm not at all happy with the Hydro H50 though. It doesn't perform well when stress testing imho (Prime95). I'm going to replace it with a Noctua soon, since those tend to synergize well with my case and fan setup. Well, if I can get the H50 backplate off, that is.

Edit: and yes, my cable management sucks.

Just grab some cable ties, use the grommets provided too, it's what they're there for. As well as dusting, you might want to turn the PSU upside down to take advantage of the bottom airflow space & dust filter.

Well, she's finished. (you will recall I asked questions about the Kraken on this thread?)

So. Specs.

I5 7600K -Stock speeds (I may overclock, but don't need it right now)
Gigabyte Z270X Ultra gaming
Coolermaster Hyper212X for cooling.
16 Gig DDR4 Corsair Vengeance ram (Black)
Palit "Jetstream" GTX1070
Corsair RX 650 - 650 watt PSU
Samsung 850 EVO 500 gig SSD
2 TB Western Digital Black HDD
1 DVD RW (prrf. useful. I still have ancient DVD's I sometimes watch.)
All wrapped up in a sexy Coolermaster Mastercase 5. (this was a JOY to build in... Absolute joy)

So far, everything I've thrown at her is at max... though I do only have a 1920 display. (I intend to update this soon.)

Even Batman (that horrendous un-optimised game) runs at 91 FPS with everything on Max.

Can't wait to give it some games that are optimised.... :)

Overall, VERY happy with it. Oh, and she runs SILENT. It's shocking compared to my old system.

Mine's a pre-built that I've been upgrading slowly over the year or so that I've had it.
Case: Apevia X-Sniper2 Mid-Tower
Processor: AMD FX-4300 3.8Ghz. Not the best, especially since it's of the Bulldozer architecture, but it serves its purpose.
Cooling: Stock, with an extra exhaust fan in the side panel window.
Mobo: MSI MS-7641
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X 16Gb
GPU: Nvidia GTX 750 Ti 2Gb. Ordered a Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 580 8Gb over the weekend as an upgrade.
Storage: 1TB HDD
PSU: 450W. I don't know the maker, and ordered an EVGA 600W to accommodate the new graphics card.

I have made enough changes to my PC that I feel that I can post again.

Windows 7 64 Bit SP1
Case: Black Hawk Ultra
Mobo: Asus Rampage V
CPU: Intel i7-5930K
GPU: Firepro w9100 - 2xAsus 1070 Turbo - Titan XM
RAM: Corsair DDR4 2400MHZ 8x8GB=64GB total
SSD: 1x Intel 256GB 1x Crucial M4 60GB 1x Sandisk 512GB
HDD: 1x 1TB 2x 2TB 1x 4TB 1x 500GB External
Optical: Asus Bluray and DVD player
PSU: EVGA 1600 Gold Fully Modular
Keyboard: Corsair K70 RGB
Mouse: Logitech G700s

I do a lot of GPU rendering so those Nvidia cards are getting a good workout.

This is a very high end build
