New Guy Intro

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I've used this site for years when searching for info and figured it was about time I sign up in case I need to actually talk back.

I'm a long-time system builder from back in the days when a DX2-66 was king and have tried just about every type of hardware since. I've gone back and forth between Intel and AMD, and even Cyrix back in the day, so I'm not loyal to any particular brand. I do tend to use Gigabyte MB's and nVidia graphics, though. Currently I've been diggin Sandy Bridge and just got around to building a new rig based on the i5-2500k and looking forward to seeing what it can do. I have a homebuilt virtual pinball machine powered by an i3-550 I've had good luck with, but it's been a while since I've put together a "traditional" gaming PC just for fun. I tend to build them in cycles that just happen to match up to the latest Elder Scrolls game release dates...

I'm also into cars, guns, and vintage audio. My PC's play through a mid-70's-era receiver and speakers that put any of those new-fangled-5.7-channel-sub-woofered-squawkboxes to shame

Cheers
