Anyways, why would you be building your "last build"? Think this is a hobby that you can just drop? My friend, it is who we are. Techs.
You've seen my rig. What do I do with my PC? Attend discussions on OCN. Chat on AIM. Watch some movies, listen to music, and do school work. Long story short, I spend more time installing/managing hardware more than in Windows. I'm all about the hardware, because hardware alone carries my interest.
As far as GPU goes, I'm still running a single 3870. Haven't really been gaming since Left 4 Dead, and I use my XBOX for recent games. I think I have pretty much retired from heavy gaming though. I just don't have the time, and have lost a lot of interest in it.
Getting back to last night. My Nevada brother. It's nuts up here, today it's up to 70! It's humid
and cloudy!! It was never
like this when I was a kid. Last night it was 30, the night before it was 22! The sun goes down what, in 2 hours and I guarantee the temp will crash about 45 minutes before it does. I'm seriously
thinking of uncovering the A/C!
For those of you who don't know about Nevada, we don't do Humid too well.
My last build, well as far as a whole new kit goes. I have a new PSU on the floor right now, I have things to do with Mindy's machine but I don't know if I'd buy a whole new rig again. Mindy's cost me $2400- to put together, sure it's 1st class piece of kit but I can't see doing that again. Mine was a whole lot more and I'm not even finished with it! You know how much it costs to run 2 SSD's in Raid0? I wouldn't trade it for the world but it's expensive man.
Mostly it's because we'll be getting a real house out in Spanish Springs, half of the deal is done, we're just waiting for the banks to finish arguing.
Oh, the thing I said about the next version of consoles coming out, that may change my mind about computer gaming. So that's what, 4 reasons I won't build a new machine again. Upgrading may happen but one from scratch, I don't think so.
Oh, rep+ to Repton, I wish I would have moved Mindy's cooler to the front. Now I'm going to either push/pull it or shroud it. Hmm, maybe go external to the back, that would be an adventure!Edited by BriSleep - 3/16/10 at 5:07pm
