I have always used Nvidia chipset VC. But the HP laptop my husband took to Iraq with him had an ATI in it and it was pretty much done once he came home. Of course the heat and sand could have been what killed the card lol.
Jealous of the liquid cooling systems Im seeing in some of yours. Been wanting to try one out in one of mine but its just not realistic with us being Army and moving alot. Besides Army movers are the worst.

go with a liquid cooling kit.
if you want liquid cooling I'd recommend this kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835181016
or the H100

they're well built and good for beginners compared to the full blown out cooling sets. Being they house the Radiator+pumps in one device

If you're every looking for an ultimate gaming computer, check out Falcon Northwest. I've built many of my own PC's, but they are VERY good at what they do. Look closely at the paint

Mine is two years old, so the Video cards are a little older. I plan to upgrade them at some point to another SLI.

Blue Side Panel & Lighting
2010 Chevy Imperial Blue Metallic Paint
Intel Core I7 975 Extreme 3.33GHz Processor
Water Cooled
12GB 1333MHz RAM
X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Sound Card
Blue Ray Reader/Writer
Dual EVGA Superclocked Geforce 295 (yes, two of them...that's QUAD-SLI)
Corsair 256GB Solid State Drive
Western Digital 2TB Hard Drive
30" Monitor

You should!

Also, because my Camaro got hit 3 months after I got it, the Camaro lettering from the left front fender is now on the computer

I ordered it from Falcon NW who did the painting in house. Doing car paint is no problem for them.

Also, check out their gallery of cases they've custom painted.

I feel that most companies that build gaming computers put a large amount of overkill into their machines. This is just an opinion though.

Early December last year I walked into Fry's for a video car for a budget build (which I still have the parts laying around for ) $1900 later.........

Since then I've added another Geforce 670 4Gb vid card, and a couple more case fans.


All in all, not my favorite build that I've done, but it'll do for now. (Impulse build lol)



Here are pics from the day it was built:

Wow, didn't know we had so many system builders on here, this is awesome! You guys have some sick rigs, that's for sure. Also loving the nice cable management guys and gals. Great refresher from some of the rigs I see on on reddit, haha.

Here's my rig.

This is my old setup, I needed two monitors since I upgraded at work not too long ago.



The new setup


The PC - i5 2500K, 8GB Corsair Vengeance, XFX 6870 1GB, ASUS MB, WD 300GB Raptor HDD, WD 1TB Black HDD, Corsair 650w HX PSU, & Lian-Li MATX tower.





Past & Present


Here's my workstation. The PC is an HP circa 2010 with some pretty sad specs. Should be getting replaced soon.

This is the old setup


The New Setup




And here's some more of my work I've been doing in my spare time.

http://imgur.com/a/eQcGB

I've built a couple more since I created that album.

Hey everyone! I've never built a PC before, but I want to make a PC that will absolutely melt my face when I play Battlefield 4. I'll probably be hooking it up to my 55" Vizio. Any suggestions of where to start?

Well... I don't need it for anything else, so basically whatever it takes to melt my face in BF4 awesomeness. I can get Windows for free (not pirated) so that frees up about $150.
