Always wanted to sign up here, just needed a reason to do so. Well, what better reason than a free rig right? Any way, lets skip the formalities for the moment and get on with my current rig shall we?
By the way, sorry for the crudeness of the pictures. I have to make due with a 2mp web cam.
O.k, on to her specs.
CPU= 2.2GHz AMD Athlon 3700+
Motherboard= ASUS A8N-sli premium
Video card= Nvidea 7950gt (over clocked)
HDD= Western digital 350gig
Memory= A-data 2gig DDR 400
Power supply= NZXT 600watt
Case= NZXT Apollo, black
OS= windows XP
With that out of the way, let me tell you about her and I. I built her about a year and a half ago after for living on a store bought HP heap for... to long. She was built on a budget from my small earnings as a temp for Toys' R Us. But she was well worth every dime. She has been a real trooper buzzing along during long sessions of F.E.A.R and Half-Life 2. Even stunning me in chugging along during my time with Crysis and Bioshock (on low settings of course). But since she was built on a small budget, some of her parts aren't what some would call up to par
with other rigs of today. I've been meaning to upgrade her but I just don't have that kind of money any more. If PC games keep going the way that they are (looks at crysis) I don't think she can take that much more punishment like that. Help an old PC gamer out Destructoid? read
