WHERE DO YOU PEOPLE GET THIS MUCH MONEY!? My computer now is worse than the computers that were posted two years ago at the start of the thread.
I have a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 530 with two extra GB of RAM (4 total) and a Radeon 6670. Epic Core 2 quad 2.4gHz, 32-bit windows 7 and 1TB HDD.
I get a smooth 25FPS in SC2 under medium settings and light load with nothing else running (I can't even have Chrome open in the background). I will include my paypal so that the rich people in this forum can donate to my non-poor rig
Mobo: Asrock Z77 Extreme4
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16gb (2 x 8gb)1600 Mhz CL9 (Just ordered these, arriving here thurs/fri)
HDD: 1tb, not sure of the specs...stole it from my previous computer that was prebuilt
SSD: 120gb OCZ Vertex 3
GPU: Radeon HD 6780
PSU: 575W DiabloTek
Case: Corsair Carbide Series 300R
Cooling: Typical low end decent aftermarket CPU cooler
Monitor: Some Hanspree I've had for a few years now, couldn't even tell you the size
Possible future plans involve replacing the CPU cooler with a Corsair H60 or H80, upgrading to a nicer 24" monitor, and purchasing an Asus Xonar D1 or DX sound card.
System Specs -
CPU - i5 2500k @ 5ghz | CPU Cooler - RASA RX240 | Motherboard - Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3| GPU - Nvidia GTX 590|
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB | RAM - 8GB Corsair Vengeance | PSU - Corsair TX850M | Case - CoolerMaster HAF 922
| Monitor - Crossover 27Q (2560x1440) | Sidewinder X4 Keyboard |
or something similar!
With the nature of the setups I'd probably sooner think about the 300R tbf, Phobya's testbench or LD Cooling's test bench.
With people asking how do you got that kind of money my answer is its a hobby. Some people buy and restore cars some people by big screen tv's in every room of there house, some people buy and play MagicTG(which is expensive I know), some people collect sports memorabilia its all hobby.
My media server died last night................... , So I went out and bought this crap:
The PSU is for my tower, and I took my old Thermaltake 430w and stuck it in the server.
I dont even turn my server off anymore, I configured RDP for multiple concurrent connections, so I just remote in when I need to do any maintenance. Its a lot better then trying to find a keyboard and mouse to hook up at 3am. :P
Very little has changed since the pictures where taken in the summer of .12
I've changed the keyboard for a Logitech G710+ and the mouse is now a G700 instead of the mamba

Under the middle of the monitors is the Xbox 360 connected to the speakers on each side of the monitors far sides, I'm not sure what their brand is since I've forgotten, but to be that small and cheap, they have a really high oomf for the money !
Can't post pictures yet :P
And there we go. I'm now on my "classic" rig with new case. Bridged internet connection via laptop though... :P

* Technically, monitor belongs to my brother. However, I got a 30" IPS 2560x1600 monitor today... And decided he can borrow it, since the 560ti won't be able to drive that resolution!
Hopefully I'll get a good chance to take pictures of everything tomorrow. It looks pretty darn good, although cable management isn't what I'd consider ideal. Too long cables on powersupply mixed with a tiny, tiny case...
What video card setup do you plan on running with that setup. Kinda weird that you have a 750w for a 560ti or are you planning on getting another 560ti.
