Hey everyone! New to the forum

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a computer that started out in 2005 as a premium $1000 computer with an Intel Pentium D 820. I got a 7800 GT that same year. It went through a couple of basic changes in terms of the case, power supply & mobo, but nothing too big and it was pretty much dormant from 2009-2012. Over the last year I have been giving it an overhaul into a beast of a machine.

It now is housed in a CM HAF X with an i7-3770k, 8GB of RAM, 2 GTX 680's, two sets of RAID 0 (one set from the original hard drives, and one set from an external hard drive that was running RAID 0 apparently, which explains why it was so big and heavy lol). It currently has an 900W PSU (ABS Tagan BZ900), but this is going to be swapped out in a day or two when I get off my butt and install my new AX1200i.

I work @ Best Buy and learned about the Intel Retail Edge program, which helped kick start everything. During last winter's holiday deal I picked up the 3770k and a new motherboard for $295 shipped. Then for the summer deal I got an i7-3930k for a mere $180. It is still sitting in the desk, but I have plans for its future.

In addition to the desktop, I also have a full-time server that is a laptop with broken screen that has an i7-M620 and is running Server 2008 R2. Connected is 7TB of storage that I use as a personal could, and media server.

My daily laptop is a crappy little Asus that will be replaced when there is a touchscreen laptop with a RAID 0 configuration and non-ULV i7.

I'm glad I have finally gotten to a point to where I can actually game again! That 7800 GT was good for nothing anymore lol.
