Share your PC Builds


#1

Show us your all of the PCs you have built that you were proud of. Show off your hard work and share your ideas with other people.

Here are a few of my builds starting from some of my first builds which I am not too proud of, but was a start:

No pics, but I shuffle between the following:

Laptop (used 90% of the time)

  • Asus ROG Strix GL502VM gaming laptop
  • Intel i7 7700-HQ
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • GTX1060 6GB
  • 250GB SSD
  • 1TB HDD
  • 15" IPS G-Sync display
  • Logitech G602 mouse

When stationary on desk, it’s also connected to:

  • SteelSeries Apex keyboard
  • 23" Samsung 1080p @ 60Hz monitor

Desktop (used 10% of the time, mining crypto when idle)

  • Intel i5 3470k
  • 8GB DDR3 RAM
  • 128GB SSD
  • 1TB HDD
  • GTX1080
  • Bitfenix Colossus M case
  • Dell 23" 1080p @ 60Hz monitor
  • Microsoft Wireless media keyboard
  • Razer Naga Molten mouse

Then, finally, I also have a 2012 Macbook Pro 13" that I upgraded to a 250GB SSD and 16GB RAM for all my macOS-related work (primarily ReactNative development). It shares the same desk as my laptop, so I also plug in the keyboard, screen and Logitech G602 for a familiar working environment.

Nice laptop you got there


#4

I miss my MSI GS70 quite a bit though… The SteelSeries keyboard it had was MUCH better than the built-in one the Asus has. It was a 17 incher though, but it was still 0.5cm thinner than the Asus. I had to get a replacement for it about 2 months ago when the cooling fans packed up and came to a literal grinding halt. I still need to book it in for repairs one day, then my wife can use it as her main machine for her design work and after hours businesses. She currently hogs the desktop whenever she wants to do stuff, keeping the mining running in the background.

Here is my current build, i’m very happy with it.


#6

Too embarrassed to post a picture since the case is falling apart… and it needs a clean.

Desktop

  • Intel Core i5-760
  • 500Gb/320Gb/600Gb HDD
  • GTX 750
  • 8GB DDR3
  • Thermaltake V3
  • Dell 24" IPS / Fujitsu 20"

The case is missing a side panel at the back and it is prone to vibrating every so often. Due to it having 2 areas at the top of the case for fans (which don’t fit because the motherboard is too close??) it attracts a lot of dust.

Having said that, I am looking at getting a new system come the new year. I have an ancient Gigabyte Case I can use. I was thinking of a AMD system R3/RX560 combo Unless Intel decides to release their B360 boards soon their new i3’s are nice but only having Z-series boards right now, is kind of silly.

With RAM prices being stupid as they are, it’s a tossup between a SSD or more RAM. I am leaning towards the SSD though.


#7

Don’t need more than 16gb RAM for normal gaming use


#8

Nice little Phanteks case you got there.
What are the specs?

  • Corsair H100i AIO

  • Galax GTX980 HOF V2

You people with your big ass GPU’s.

My PC died about 5 years ago and since then it has just been too expensive to replace it all to the specs i wanted. So i waited my time and told the work i need a new laptop. And then I got my new baby.

Alienware R15

i7 6700HQ
8gb DDR4 Ram
GTX 1060 6GB
Samsung m.2 256gb SSD
and some shitty 1tb 7200rpm drive.

I still have some upgrades planned. 2 more SSD’s and another 8GB of ram.

Its so awesome to have a pc again and to play games. But now I’m sitting with 5 years of games I missed that I’m trying to play all at ones. Its a fuck up.


#13

Fine!! I’ll share my weak-ass PC specs as well. Seeing as I’m mostly a console peasant I haven’t focused on upgrading my PC in a very long time.

So I’ve got:

Intel Core i5 2500k
ASRock Mobo of some model and some spec
8GB DDR3 2400
AMD RX470 GPU
500GB 7200 drive
A shitty box with missing feet

So yeah, if I get 1080p gaming on reletively recent titles it will be a miracle.


Category suggestion: Add Hardware

Can’t edit the old post, I see there is a mistake.

I listed my GPU twice :rofl:


#15

Mmm

here’s my recently upgraded pc

Intel Core i7 7700
ASRock B250M Pro 4 Mainboard
8GB DDR4(cant remember exactly what but i think 2133)
GTX 750
240 SSD
500gb Seagate
2tb old hard drive
Coolermaster Masterbox Lite 5

my PC now also features some coole RGB Fans


#16

I forgot to mention I finally got an upgrade!

AMD Ryzen 3 1200
ASRock A320M
Kingston Hyper X 1 x 8GB DDR4-2400
Adata 128GB M.2 SSD (boot drive)
3TB, 2 x 2TB, 1TB, 640GB, 500GB, 320Gb for storage.
Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti
Corsair VS350
Gigabyte M1 Case

Now my Current “PC” is…

A Raspberry Pi 2 B+

Why you ask? Well… Back in December, my older PC died. I ordered a new system and everything arrived. Fast Forward exactly one month after purchase. It dies. Through some tests, it’s narrowed down to the motherboard or PSU. Both are sent back and after about a working week of waiting, the motherboard is indeed friend. The supplier is still working on the PSU, which I might hear about later this week. It’s been almost 3 weeks of waiting… It sucks really, but I have heard that Corsair/supplier support is terrible in SA.
