Here ill post what it began as..


And it sat on the floor for both them 2 years it was also painfully slow updating it 1 part at a time for months at a time. It is also the same case just cut up alot and painted lol.

Was given the ok, here is what it looks like now biggrin.gif it was a looong time to get all the parts and alot of them were aquired for a really good price/traded for.

I got the desk and file cabinet from a yard sale for 5$, it is in horrible condition but it works. Also lol im using the same keyboard i have had for at least 7 years now, and a crappy wallmart wireless logitech mouse, a 3 year old acer 1920x1080 monitor. I think i fit average haha
A kenwood reciever/eq from goodwill, along with the sony sub, and sony speakers, and 2 no name speakers from a resale shop lol







Just got the "here" is a link, Sad fact i paid less than 1200$ for my computer. And my setup is junky imho nothing like most of them and there in a totally diff league
While your choice of beer may be average, your rig is not, but it is nice. It looks so purty with all that blue

It's not about spending, heck my rig is the culmination of hard earning saving over the process of several years, but the average user does not have a water cooled loop.

Rules:

No more than $1200 spent on the rig, and monitors.
No more than dual monitors.
No more than two GPU's.

The average user does, its just a pre contained one biggrin.gif Either way i still spent way under the limit biggrin.gif

Also the average user doesn't have dual gpu's either imho.

For what some of the average users spend they could have dual gpus, if they gave up in the areas of mice, keyboards, and ssds. These are all thing that I did not spend money on to get the setup that I have. The average user does not have a WC setup though, no matter what the cost is. Your rig is very nice. But just because it fits into a price point does not make it average. Look at all of the beginning builds that happen, yes some of them are trolls, and some of them are from teens who shave way too much too spend, but the average person does not have a WC loop. AT best the average person has a AIO cooler, becaue they can't afford a custom loop. I'm not putting your rig down, hell I wish mine was more like it, But from what I have read in this thread, your rig is above average, and not because of money, which is why this thread needs some real actual rules. Money does not count, If I give someone a Titan then they did not spend that money, and if you are talking about hardware from five years ago it has depreciated so much it does not even matter. This thread should be about reaching a certain "average" level of performance in games to determine if you can gain membership or not. Someone can skimp on certain features to either gain or lose fps in games, the rig should not be judged on how much it cost, or how much it is worth

What about countries other than the US? Is the total cost the value of the equivalent hardware or the direct currency conversion? I'm just asking as hardware costs more in the UK frown.gif

I am not sure on this, actually. I'm still trying to come up with a better way to say what "average" is and have had very little input on it. If your rig is your sig rig, I think you'll fit in just fine.

Feel free to message me if you have a suggestion.

You could try a voting system, something along the lines of 0-10 out of 10.

0= A very cool looking, something most would want, something expensive looking, tidy, great cable management etc.

5= A good looking rig, money spent on it, but still needing some attention to reach a lower score, mediocre cable management

10= A rig you couldn't give away, cable management thinking.gif what is that? Something people will have to look at twice to make sure it is not truly beige, not just an off white. Something which if you handed to a third world country poor person, they would laugh at you, and hand it back feeling sorry for you.


Or a points based system, were you have allocated points for different features, or lack of.

That doesn't really help with saying what is average and what isn't though. I need a set of rules to govern the thread and to let people know what is and isn't expected here.

Please message me with input rather than post it here, I don't want to clutter up this thread with talk about this. thumb.gif

I had my computer on the desk for like 6 years, I'm very glad I decided to put it on the floor along with my sub. Sooooo much more desk space and I can comfortable have 2 monitors on it. It got pretty dusty anyways being on top of my desk.
