I recently bought my first rig. A used rig, from one of my friends. It's about 3 years old, but at that time, it was very good gear.
It consisted of a p6x58-e ws Asus motherboard, with an Intel i7 930 quad core 2.8 ghz processor. It had 2 Asus gtx 470's in SLI (Yes, he's an Asus fan) and 24 gigs of kingston ram.

I have used this rig for about half a year, but i recently decided to upgrade because my gpu's overheated and evetually died.
I started small, but kinda got addicted to upgrading smile.gif I first bought an Asus gtx 760 because i needed to get get playing again.
Then i got some watercooling gear from my uncle, which i decided to install. A Swiftech pump, radiator, tubing and waterblock (The waterblock didn't fit on the socket so i bought a new one).
I mounted the radiator on top of the case, and bought 3 Artic Cooling fans to put on.

I was really impressed with the overclocking-possibilities that i now had.
I went from 2.8 ghz to 4 ghz with max temperatures of 70 degress to 60 degrees celsius (140 fahrenheit)!!!

Please tell me what you think of this system smile.gif
