It is for those that get ignored in other threads because the average OCN isnt impressed unless they are looking at dual 1440P monitors, Xfire or Sli Top GPU, Sleeved cabling, Custom Case and blah blah blah.

I honestly like seeing "Average rigs and rooms"

I did not get my two 670s at once, there was about 4 months in between each purchase. And I had to make sacrifices to purchase each one. I also don't have things like a soundcard or an ssd. Most of my components are over 2 years old (cpu, ram, case, psu, monitor, mouse, kb, hdd). I just think that using a pricepoint does not work the best since someone could be close to a microcenter or a fryes and catch somethings on a great sale. And using a what it's currently worth doesn't help much either. I think a benchmark would be the best determination of "average". Using cost someone could go with an ultra cheap setup and then throw in a titan and still come in at around the $1200 mark. The "average" user will have trouble maxing out a game such as Crysis 3 and keep over 30 fps.

Seeing as how creative some of the people in this thread have been with their setup and their room I expect more creativity to come for a judging point rather then a dollar amount. Not trying to hate or argue, just voicing my opinion.

dont really see how likely it is that someone is going to buy a tier 1 GPU with everything else being terrible.

This thread isnt about individuals maxing out games. It is about people who are doing a lot with a little. I have seen some pretty sweet setups because people went out of the box.

I love getting deals, but that dollar amount still holds true. I picked up my second 27" asus monitor for $150 off retail. Both my monitors and the stand are $800 bucks alone. I dont post pictures in here because my setup would cost you a 3.5k or so to replicate. I still have learned alot and improved my setup from this thread. I dont understand why people dont get this concept. I really think it is because they are outside of the dollar limit, but dont have awesome setups.

Maybe this thread can be for the under appreciated and ignored.

This^

The same holds true for me, most of what I have I got great deals on and it took me a few years to build what I have now. But none of that changes that A) it costs alot to replicate and B) my setup is way beyond average.

I understand that my setup is above average. Not trying to fight that, just trying to wrap my head around what exactly constitutes average. The only reason I threw in the whole titan with a ultra cheap crap rig is because it could be done (why someone would want to is beyond me), but there are those out there who would just for giggles.
And Jester, not to knock you but many people have a home theater, myself included (It's an older 600 watt sony, but still works great), so I don't feel that should be included in the cost of your rig. Your rig is damn nice though, I'd love to have it.

Until a better idea comes around, it's going to have to stay with the dollar amount. This thread has nothing to do with gaming, as not everyone uses their rigs to game on, and it doesn't go by benchmarks because I don't care what my rig benches at. If it's not going to be impressive, why bench it? 75% of the time I am not gaming on my rig, I'm surfing, watching movies, making music, doing graphic arts...

If someone would like to throw a Titan in a functioning low budget rig and still be below the budget, by all means. lol

The current value makes sense because someone that has a rig that was top of the line 5 years ago and spent $2500 to build it is obviously working with very average system now that is worth less than half of what it was when they built it. I really don't see why price is such an issue to begin with, it is, after all, the number one factor in how most of us build our setups.

When I initially built mine, I had about $450 to run with. That got me the basics: Cheap case, mobo with on-board graphics, DVD burner, regrettably cheap PSU, CPU and RAM. I had a monitor and a hard drive already from a scrapped Dell. I lived with on-board graphics for almost a year before I bought a GTS 450, and lived with just the one for another 4 months before I got the second. Took apart a WD MyBook external to get my 1Tb drive, bought another 1.5Tb a few months later along with my CM SS case. Got the Acer Monitor for my birthday 2 years ago... Still using the original mobo from when I built it, same CPU, same burner, and the original monitor I was using is now my secondary. The total cost of buying everything I'm using now brand new is actually more than what I actually spent on it since most of what I have I got because it was on sale somewhere, or someone sold it to me on here for cheap.

Anyhow, the point is: The price limit for what it would cost to build the same rig from all new parts today makes far more sense than using the amount initially spent on it.

I love getting deals too... who doesn't? But what makes me especially happy is being economical by doing more with less.

I bought my crappy Dell 570 desktop 4 years ago and recently considered building a new rig from scratch. But then I realized that my education comes first, so I spent around $250 to upgrade my existing computer to double the speed/performance instead. And yet it is still far below average, but I'm perfectly fine with it because it suits my needs as well as my budget.

Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to try and add a dual monitor set-up with my newly upgraded (but still crappy) computer. I sold my old IN2010 monitor and bought two IN2030s ($100 each) with a used monitor stand off Kijiji ($50). Again, I'm happy because it works with what I want and doesn't break my bank.

Upon moving out, I had to figure out a way to fit both my computer and my TV in a tiny little corner of my room on a limited budget. So I looked around until I found a cool little clamping shelf bracket at Ikea. I cut a piece of scrap wood to the appropriate size/length, painted it, and attached it onto the bracket as an addition to my desk for my TV to sit on. $10 for two brackets, $10 for paint, and a free piece of wood.

All in all, I spent ($250 +$250 + $20) $520 to turn my piece of crap into a piece of bronze. It isn't diamond or gold by any means, but I'm fine with it.

That's my story. The reason I'm below the price limitation is purely by choice, not because I am trying to fit into a label of being average.

In the case of what a system is worth now, mine would probably qualify. My cpu is not even sold anymore. When I bought my ram it was expensive but now ram is cheap, the only parts of my system that are worth anything are the GPUs. Granted they may be 3/4 of the 1200 budget, but I think my system comes in at around 1350 today, as opposed to the 2.5K that has ben put into it over the years. But even if I met the price point I would still be above average because of what I can throw at the damn thing.

that isnt my home theater bro.. That is the speakers that are in my office... I got sick of people asking me what everything was in the pictures, so I put everything that is in my office in my sig. Honestly speakers are a huge component of a rig IMO. once I got rid of computer speakers and went to sound card, receiver, and bookshelf & amp. I never will go back!

My media room has a 5.1 polk monitor series with a pioneer VSX-821K receiver.. the pictures are on my profile.

My media room has a 5.1 polk monitor series with a pioneer VSX-821K receiver.. the pictures are on my profile.

Wouldn't a receiver the bookshelves and the amp qualify as a home theater, maybe I'm missing something here

It isnt a home theater.. It is a 2.1 system for my PC.

I am not asking anyone to include my sound system with my rig alone, but it is part of my office setup.

I am not really sure where the disconnect is in this discussion.

Its the same reason you have your AV-40's listed in your sig..
