    Ahhh! Top fans! Mine need to hurry up now! I wish my Naga would light up Red, and I would have stuck with the Red.

    But you do KNOW the colors :P

    I sit with my PC to my right, so I see everything going on inside. I had the G15, and swapped to a G510 just so I can be able to swap LED colors. My G15 is now used by my girlfriend, which was the primary reason I upgraded.

    MEM: 8GB DDR-3-1333MHz
    CHS: Corsair H80

    GPU: Two Galaxy 460's in SLI @ 825MHz

    Because for some reason imgur.com and, in fact, a lot of other sites, for some inexplicable reason won't load their CSS files and various small things, breaking exactly all of them usually. This issue has stayed across all the browsers I've tried, through several reboots and more.

    Why'd you go with the 2550K? I've read that they perform the exact same as the 2500K when both are overclocked... But that may be wrong.

    It was a free upgrade from 2500k.

    The only thing separating the two is the 2550k has a feature removed.
    Can't say that's an upgrade, myself.

    Because it's a pre-built system and some of them come with this 2550k chip as a "free upgrade" and no option to pick 2500K. No IGP, not sure that's a big deal to most gamers and I guess it also clocks 100MHz higher but of course that wont change much if you overclock.
    CPU: Intel i7-4790k 4.7GHz MB: ASUS Z97 Pro Gamer
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 970 G1-Gaming 1519MHz Boost RAM: Corsair Pro 16GB 1866MHz
    SSD: Samsung 850-EVO 500GB PSU: Corsair RM550 CASE: Phanteks Enthoo Pro Monitor: 1440p Dell U2515H 1080p LG 237L-BN IPS

    Your PSU is more than enough power, don't worry.

    It's not much of a gaming rig anymore, but this is the (ancient) computer my dad's been using to play X-Wing and Tie Fighter on so I guess it counts as a "gaming rig" (it also used to be the PC we had our printer hooked up to up until a year ago):


    (I know the picture quality is kinda crappy, taken with my phone camera)

    I don't know the exact specs, but I know it's a Dell from sometime in the 90's, pretty sure it's running Windows 98. It has a Pentium II processor (Slot 1... and passively cooled), a single stick of RAM (can't tell what kind it is, or how much it has), an ATI graphics card (AGP based, not sure the exact model though) and yes, those are ISA slots at the bottom of the motherboard... the standard before legacy PCI was standard (the modem is in one of them) Thought it was kinda cool to see some old hardware like that and knowing it still works.
