This thread is for those of us that don't have the super expensive and crazy fancy set-ups. I've noticed that set-ups like mine go ignored, or rarely get any attention in the other threads for several reasons. Normally, it's because someone posts right after me with something awesome and makes mine chopped liver. lol

Soooo... This thread is to post those that get ignored elsewhere.

Rules:

  • No more than $1200 spent on the rig, and monitors. (*** Current value, not initial value.)
  • No more than dual monitors.
  • No more than two GPU's.
  • Ghetto rigging is encouraged.
  • Beige box? No problem!
  • No water cooling unless it is ghetto rigged.
  • Didn't clean up? Post it anyway!
  • Past set-ups are encouraged.


Explained:

*** Current value is how much it would cost to buy the parts NEW today to build the rig.



These rules will be updated as I get ideas on how to gauge what is average and what is not.

I'll start it off. I don't have any pics of my past rigs, as they were REALLY basic and I felt no need to take pics. My current set-up is in my sig.

Here's a few pics:





I'll be adding two large shelves and a 55 gallon aquarium. Waiting for the weather to clear up to finish painting the shelves and tank stand. Not sure what I'll be putting in the tank yet.

I have mouse pads all over my desk because the desk is a $400 desk from a nice furniture store (12 months no interest FTW) and I don't want to scratch it, so I put a bunch of mousepads all over it.

hmm... I am not sure my rigs are ghetto enough. But we shall see.

Current setup almost. Got my 1366*768 Dell monitor up top now too.

This is previous setup. It was too messy for me.

If these are not ghetto enough to fit the rules, let me know and I will remove them.

Good call on the thread!

The Infantry's primary role is close combat, which is characterized by extreme violence and physiological shock, close combat is callous and unforgiving FM 3-21.8

I'd like to, but that gets real expensive, real fast, and I don't have a ton of fish experience to begin with.

These are fine. Just looking for the average stuff, doesn't have to be ghetto. I just don't want the massive water cooled 50 GPU server room, dim the lights for the whole block when you hit the power button rigs here. lol

Probably won't be as popular as the other threads, but meh... I like seeing rigs along the same line as my own. thumb.gif

okay. Those rigs are about as average as it gets I rekon. Except maybe my little baby (Latitude L400).
