For those that have a gaming PC did you buy it or build it?
Feel free to share some specs and pics. Just kinda thought it would be fun to see who else has the same computer interests. :)
I love building things so i built mine and the one my husband uses as well.

there's also a western digital media player hooked up to the tv in the living room so you can watch movies off the network also.
I like how we have 3 AMD builds in a row :laugh:
Very nice! I love AMD processors. Every build Ive done Ive used AMD. They overclock very well and dont cost arms and legs. :D AMD is one of the only brands that is a must have at this point for me. Im slowly trying to find a brand of RAM i like. The ADATA Im not to happy with and am only running one of the 4GB sticks of the 8GB I had purchased due to a bad stick and there customer service being a pain about getting an RMA to me to replace it. The OCZ im running in the husbands is pretty decent. Newegg just didnt have any OCZ in a size I needed in a kit with the GB I wanted.
Gigachip: Love the case and the triple monitor setup.
pocketcthulhu: lol yes Im a Jedi but if it makes you feel any better Im also a Sith. :D
one day I do want to try out intel though, and AMD GPUs :)
I don't game anymore but, I do dabble in the PC thing. Running 2 Hackintosh machines with a lot of umph!!! I did buy an Intel Mac with 23inch monitor. The main machine has an Intel i7 processor (over clocked) with 16Gigs of Ram and two 2TBs seagate drives. The video card is a Zotac Geforce GTX 550 (over clocked) 1000 watt power supply all connected to a Asus Sabertooth Z77 1155 motherboard. Case is a CM Storm. The other 3 monitors are all 24 wide screens.
I run asus mb's and kingston memory and have had One chip fail on me in the past 6 years. and no mb failures.
Also I think we should burn the infidel above this post....:mad0260: lol
lol anyway man I am in no way shape or form a mac person but you do have a nice setup.
Thanks, I also think AMD is the best for gaming rigs. I actually run a triple-boot on one of the machines, hence Intel process.
I'm waiting for my new laptop to be delivered. I've been running a gaming rig in my antec 900 case for about 6 years now that I built myself. It's time to upgrade. Wife hates wires and bulky towers so she allowed me to spend the extra money and get a laptop.
Nvidia GTX 670M 1.5 GB video card
8GB 1666 MHz RAM
120 GB Intel 520 series SSD
750 GB sata3 7200 rpm hdd
I'm retaining my 23" acer 1920x1080 monitor or I can hook it up to my 46" 3d TV.
I always love the multiple monitor setups.Thanks for the RAM suggestions. :)
As for ASUS, we have a love hate relationship lol. I love there MB but not there VC. I've had 3 ASUS video cards now that gave me probems. Two were bad and one of them I RMA'd and the new one from the RMA which is the 3rd the heatsink actually went out on after a year of use. I modified it with a processor heatsink lol and it works just fine now. But that was the biggest reason I went EVGA on my new machine. The ASUS MB though have always worked pretty well for me though. :)
