Xeon, interesting. May i ask why if you don't use it for server/workstation?

J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies
Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie
Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens
Je suis juste un cas désespérant
Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer
Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

All of that and still a top mounted PSU?! Anyway that is a very nice rig.. what else do you do on it apart from gaming? An i7 2600k OC'd will handle most games - 2 server processors aren't needed for that. Spending 5G's is tonnes too o.O


Well the top vs bottom mount is a long standing argument, some say it's better on top others say better on the bottom.
I personally think it depends on the case design, my old coolermaster case was bottom mount and this one is top, temps stay very low even on hot days, hottest running part is the bottom graphics card (67C hottest I've had), if anything the PSU at the bottom with heat travelling towards to top of the case would put more strain on the GPU's, Personally have always found top mount to be fine & in this case (excuse the pun) I think it's working perfect with the design on the case.

I tend to use the PC for gaming, graphic design & animation rendering, as well as everything else. I've been a PC builder for about 12 years, I just wanted to build the best at the time, and I have no regrets.

Simples, SR-2 Motherboard only supports Xeon's.
I had to have the SR-2 lol.

I'm not a massive fan of 3D, but this is good, beats the cinema screens anyway.
On RuneScape (Which obviously isn't meant to be 3D) it's pretty good, now on 3D games like Crysis 2 with DX11 and Hi-Res pack its amazing (has a few bugs with the cross-hairs but nothing major)
When you put in a 3D film on a Blu-Ray it's totally worth it, that's when it's at its best imo, I'll mainly use it as a 2D screen, but for some games and movies I will use the 3D again.

Because I saw a build like this one a website, and decided I would build the same as I wanted a fast powerful rig that could pretty much do anything I wanted, some people pay 7-9k for an Alienware, this computer is half the price and 5 times the power of the best Alienware to date. it's going to last me a longer time than normal, I normally do a complete rebuild every 3 years, but upgrade a lot in between.

I'm an enthusiast, simple as that.
Graphics cards will need upgrading in a year or two, processors will last a long time.

Very nice. Got any overclock going on the i5? Also strange because the TX650 in your picture and '530W Pure Power..' don't match up.

Just got a brand new laptop, actually it's a gaming one, but still will be mainly used for college, as my old laptop was when I bought it 3.5 years ago for a 2 year programming course. The old laptop wasn't strong enough and didn't support virtualization which is a huge problem in the course that I am currently following. I bought the Asus G53SW-A1 which was at a low price, being discontinued right after I bought it (got lucky, laptops with similar specs cost $300 more than what I paid). Here are the specs:

15.6" screen
Core i7 2630QM processor
8GB of RAM
750GB HDD (7200 rpm)
Nvidia GeForce 460M
Windows 7 Home Premium

Here are some pictures:

I think you just sold me on the G53SW. I'd been on the fence about it because of how big it is, but it looks really nice in your photos.

Here in Canada though the G53SW is discontinued. I bought it right before it got discontinued 2 weeks ago. The G73** has a similar look and I believe is a bit more powerful but more expensive, I didn't look it up before posting this message though.

Or it depends, there might still be other G53 laptops for sale.

Looks nice, same laptop but with a more recent graphics card and a little less hard drive for the same price that I paid for mine.

Since it's been a really long time no one has posted in this thread, I thought I'd post an update.

I do know that my desktop needs to be cleaned, since it has a lot of dust in it, but I won't have time until something like next weekend, and that's even if temperature's good outside. In the meantime, the computer's still running below 50 celsius even with a huge amount of dust in it.

Anyway, after moving the stuff all around my appartment, here's new pics of my computers.



I could be buying an actual server during the summer though, I found one with dual xeon processor and a good amount of RAM for $300. I just need to come up with the money.
