Your computer setup


#1

What kind of setups do you guys have for your computers? I just want some new ideas since Im gonna start parting my computer into a much better one.

I want to know what you guys have for everything; mouse, keyboard, webcam, speakers, cpu specs, etc.

Jesus christ, 30 views and no one posts? Dont let me down srk

Are you going to keep your old computer or build a completely new one? Also, tell us what you want out of this computer e.g. gaming.

Peripherals: really, do you want to go all out or just wait for a hot deal? If you want stuff now I’d get the Saitek Eclipse keyboard, Logitech MX518, and Logitech X-530 or Logitech z5300e speakers. (if you’re going to spend more than what these cost there are several different options to choose from)

Im just gonna go part for part and eventually build a brand new one. I have a Dell right now, so theres more than enough reason for a new one.

I dont really do too much gaming, but Id like to have that option there just in case.

Thanks for the input so far guys, keep it up.

How is Logitech stuff in general?? And what do you guys think of this for a keyboard/mouse:

I recommend the anandtech.com forums for research as they are a knowledgeable group of people.

Processor: AMD Opteron 165
Motherboard: DFI nF4 Ultra-D
Memory: 2x1GB of anything other than Corsair. Look for hot deals. G.Skill/OCZ/Crucial are all great brands.
Video Card: It depends on the native resolution of your monitor as of now assuming you have an LCD. Check the benchmarks on Anandtech and choose between the eVGA 7600/7800/7900GTs, another option being to go for the 7900GTX but I don’t like to spend money on the ultra-high end cards.
Hard Drive: Realistically, I consider Seagate my only choice–their five year warranty bests all others.
DVD R/W: NEC 3550A
Sound Card: Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic or Audigy 2 ZS

G-UNIT aka the Gamming Unit

teh G-UNIT aka the Gamming UNIT. This is a computer I built about 2 years ago now. Its running an AMD Athlon 64bit 3400 with 1gb of Corsair DDR ram with copper heatsinks. 250gb Maxtor SATA hd w/ 256mb ATI Radeon 9800xt. All stock heatsinks have been swapped out for Zalman copper heatsinks- the video card has an after market heatsink by Artic Cooling with an 80mm fan which takes up the PCI card slot that’s right next to it, but blows the heat generated by the vid card right out of the case. And check the custom vynils :rofl:

This is closest thing to Mugen on a video game system :stuck_out_tongue: (not counting X-BOX)
