    Built this last summer:

    Q6600 @ stock
    9800GTX+ OC'ed slightly
    4GB @ 1066
    Asus P5K Deluxe

    Nothing really special but it plays Crysis @ 1280x1024 decently with everything on High. The quad helps a lot for rendering 3d scenes too.
  10. Hehe my high school graduation gift is still my computer - it's old as fuck! Back from 2005..

    Intel P4 3.4GHZ
    Gigabyte Mobo
    2GB Corsair XMS DDR2 DualChannel Memory
    eVGA nVidia GeForce 7800GT
    Soundblaster Audigy
    700w Power Supply
    Dual 19" Viewsonic LCDs

    Though I just started saving up in the last month or so for a new computer. $200 down, $1800 to go!

    Holy shit maybe I should come out to the public forums more often, I didn't even know GC had created a computer section.

    My rig is a couple of years old now and running solid. It was built with silence as the primary goal:

    Antec P182 lined with a shitload of sound-absorbing foam
    Biostar TP35D2-A7 mobo w/Intel P35 Northbridge and integrated Realtek 7.1 audio (I do NOT recommend this mobo due to SATA problems I've had which are now resolved)
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33 GHz w/1333 MHz FSB and 4MB L2 cache, passively cooled with a Thermalright HR-01-775 fanless heatsink
    2 GB of OCZ DDR2 @ 800 MHz
    MSI GeForce 8600 GTS w/256 MB of 128-bit DDR3, passively cooled by a fanless heatsink
    Hitachi 160GB hard drive
    FSP 400W fanless power supply
    Asus DRW-1814BLT SATA Dual Layer DVD±RW/-RAM w/2 MB Cache, LightScribe (this drive is a fucking piece of crap, I was able to burn a single Lighscribe label and now it refuses to do Lightscribe at all)
    Three Noctua 120mm case fans running at either 600 or 1200 RPM, I don't remember

    It used to be almost silent when I had the HDD enclosed in gel packs inside an aluminum box. Unfortunately one of the gel packs sprung a leak so I had to take the drive out of the enclosure. Now I can hear the hard drive.
  15. MY setup is:

    amd athlon FX-57, (o.c to 3.2ghz)
    Asus a8n-sli premium
    Ati radeon X800GTO
    2GB OCZ ram
    3x WD RE3 1TB disks
    1x Seagate 250gb disk
    1x Maxtro 80gb disk
    1x old IBM 10gb disk
    Power LC 550w
    pioneer dvd drive

    I'ts a little old but still running good, I don't need it for gaming a lot cuz I have a 360.
  16. JUST built this beast

    EVGA x56 SLI classified motherboard
    Intel core i7 965 quad core processor overclocked to 4.40ghz
    24GB RAM
    2 Radeon HD 4890 graphics cards
    western digital velociRaptor 300GB 10000RPM SATA drive
    dual LG Flatron 1720p monitors

    I win
  17. Intel Q9550 (2.8 ghz quad-core)
    1Gb ATI 4870
    4 Gb OCZ Reaper RAM 1066 speed
    WD 1 TB hard drive
    PCP 610 watt power supply
    in an Antec 900 case

    and a nice 22" and some klipsch speakers to go with
  18. no offense, but that's a waste of money.
