Your other systems/builds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Those of you who have more than one system, what do you use them for? I was considering doing a build with a Sempron, just to overclock for fun. For example I have my laptop as my main gaming machine, plays bf4 flawlessly so how do you decide when you have multiple rigs what they are used for?

Sorry this is more of a curiosity thread, sort of debating making a second machine but need idea's what for thumb.gif

I have an overclocked desktop machine for daily use and keep another desktop in my workshop for CAD and general internet info searching. I also have an Acer laptop for couch surfing and traveling. I used to keep another (old) desktop right next to my main computer just in case of a failure, but that was pretty much overkill. My wife has a desktop in the den but mostly uses a MacBook.
