    Default What are your computer specs?

    Yes, that is the question. What are your specs?

    I've been putting a lot of my money recently into this build, so I should be future proofed for a few years... I tried to be really specific for us computer geeks...

    NZXT H440 black/blue case with a Seasonic 650 watt power supply
    Intel Core i7-3770K overclocked to 4.5 GHz (4 cores, 8 threads)
    16 GB Corsair Vengeance blue DDR3 memory (2133 MHz speed)
    Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H WB motherboard
    Boot drive: 250 GB Samsung 850 Evo with Windows 10
    Storage drive: 1 TB Samsung 840 Evo
    GTX 970 Gigabyte G1 (4 GB GDDR5)
    Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Sound Card
    Insignia 5.1 surround sound speaker set with a Pioneer receiver (1,000 watts, it's a blast in games!)
    Two 27" 2560 x 1440 monitors, one 96 Hz for gaming, the other the standard 60 Hz

    This is by far the fastest computer I've built, and for about $2,000 it should be! I have yet to meet a game that can bog it down on the highest settings, which is exactly what I was going for.

    Now let's see what some of the rest of you have!

    Come on now, don't be ashamed!

    Looks like you're AMD all the way (cpu-wise).

    Yeah, but I did want to get an Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 and custom build it with an ATI 4870, but my Gateway LX was only $1000 dollars with a 22" monitor, and I couldn't resist the deal.

    Out of curiosity, what board are you running? I'm not too pleased with the P5B Deluxe that I stuck myself with.
