Hey guys, I've had my sig rig for a couple about a month now, give or take a week

Specs:
  • Q6600 G0 @ 3.6GHz ($100)
  • EVGA 780i ($100)
  • 2x2GB Patriot Viper PC2-6400 @ 800MHz ($100)
  • EVGA GTX 470 @ 880/1760/837 ($200)
  • Antec True Power New 750W ($80)
  • Cooler Master HAF 932 (Already had)
  • XSPC Rasa RX360 Kit + 6 High Speed D12SH-12 Fans ($330)
  • 160 GB IDE 7200RPM HDD (Already had)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (Already had)
  • Creative Sound Blaster Xtreme Music (Already had)
  • Acer 25.5" 5 m/s 1920x1200 Display (Already had)

Total: $910

I added a second GTX 470 but it was a dud overclocker (775Mhz @ 1.087v) so I sold it and invested in a gaming laptop (2.13GHz C2D/4GB DDR2/9800m GS)

What do you think? It's not a sandybridge or a core i7, but it plays Crysis, Metro 2033, Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty Black Ops, with relative ease.

When you take out the $330 Watercooling, I really only spent $580 for the used hardware..

Which all works perfect, I couldn't be happier!

Not a bad rig, its quad core so i think it will last for a while again in gaming. Good idea getting water cooling though, in summer or tropical climates its very very hot
