Just to say hi!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone at OCN, thought that I would make this thread just to introduce myself (it will probably be re-written 100 times over before i actually post it!). I guess a good place to start would be my background in computers and any previous rigs I have owned.

Background In Computing
I have no actual qualifications in computing but I have had an interest in computers and the technology that surrounds them for as long as I can remember. I would say I have a an average knowledge of computer hardware, purely down to the hours spent studying new components (I'm sure many of you can relate to this!).

Where I live
I currently live in the UK and have done since birth.

Previous Computers That I Have Owned
I have owned two 'gaming' computers in the past, my first computer was rather amazing for me at the time, I will list the parts I can remember as it was a while ago.

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4

Graphics Card: AMD HD 5770

RAM: Crucial Ballistix 4GB

HDD: 250GB - I think?

Now for the exciting bit biggrin.gif

Monitors 3 x Asus / Acer ( Cannot remember which ones ) In Eyefinity!

Keyboard And Mouse Razer Lycosa , Logitech g500

Sound system Creative 5.1 Surround sound system.

This being my first gaming computer, and me being about 15 years old at the time, I was extremely happy and had saved up and sold off my console in order to pay for it. I had bought it from a seller on eBay who actually offered to deliver and set it up for me! After approximately a year of ownership I eventually re-sold it all on eBay as an upgrade was needed and the funds were not there to pay for one, I then bought an xbox 360 and used that for a good year afterwards.

Computer No.2

Processor: Intel I5-2550k

Graphics Card: GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II

Motherboard: Asus Maximus IV Gene Z

RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB

SSD: 120GB

HDD: 500GB HDD ( unsure of brand )

Case: Antec P280

Watching endless 'Lets Plays' of ARMA II DayZ mod, I decided to buy another PC. I probably rushed to buy one and looking back should have taken the time to build one myself, but once again I took to eBay, searching high and low for a PC to play games on! I ended up buying this one, for just under £500. I was content with it right up until a few months ago when I felt the need to upgrade in fear of it becoming to old to play some new games that would be releasing ( Farcry 3, Battlefield 4 etc). Luckily I got my money back on the system.

So, where does that leave me today i hear you ask, well I am currently in the process of saving to actually build a computer myself this time. I will be spending in the region of £1000 / $1500, I will most probably put a link to a thread I will make in the intel general to ask about some build ideas, although I do have a rough idea of what I am after.

So, I think that should give a brief description of my background, previous rigs etc! This thread has probably gone on for too long already, so I will end it here! Oh, one last 'minor' detail tongue.gif my name is Lorcan! biggrin.gif Thanks for reading and i look forward to talking to you all!
