I don't have a picture, but I need to stroke my e-peen. So very, very badly.


Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard
AMD FX-57 processor (I bought it the day before the FX-60 came out, I think. I'd swear it wasn't on the market when I purchased this.)
2 gigs of Corsair Twin Platinum memory (DDR400, of course)
Dual 7800 GT OC 256 video cards (PCI-E) in SLI (256 hurts the awesomeness, I know...)
Shitty 160 gig SATA HardDrive (Seagate Barracuda)
Fatal1ty Creative Labs SB X-FI Soundcard

Well, our Dell recently hit the fan, so I've been using my Gateway for the internet (and everything else, nurr) until we get the Dell back. I'm running on Windows 2000 SP4, Pentium III, 192mb RAM, 20gb-HDD, and onboard video... I like it because it's old enough to run the older games that I have, but just barely new enough to run Adobe Illustrator CS. I probably won't bother upgrading it.

I'll upload some pictures of it when I get home. I guarantee you that my chassis is better than any of the other ones I've seen in this thread so far.

This is way late to the party, I know, but here we go anyways.


Mine:



'scuse the mess. ;)
I built it ahh like almost 2 years ago I think. Its an AMD Barton AthlonXP 2500+ but she clocks in at 2.2ghz (3200+ speeds). Asus A7N8X-Deluxe mobo, 1 gig of Corsair PC3200 (DDR400) RAM, Radeon 9700 Pro, DVD, CDRW, 2HDs (300+gigs of space and its damn near full, WTF?) 19 inch Viewsonic, Logitech mouse (MX500), keyboard, and speakers (5.1 surround), blah blah blah. Its pretty good. Will probably need replaced by the end of this year though. My wallet is weeping already :(


Annd my Parents:



Whee! Its a cute little Antec Aria (SFF) I put together for my folks and sister. Its suprisingly close to my own rig too. Similar mobo (I forget the designation but its basically the A7N8X small form factor), processor (a 2500 pushed to 2.15ghz), vid card (Radeon 9600 Pro), gig of RAM (cheap stuff though ;)), a DVD burner, my old Logitech 4.1 surround, and various other parts (monitor mouse etc) cannibalized from past computers. Its really nice actually, I like it.

Actually I'm not sure if I want a SFF for myself or not. They're cute as hell and save tons of space, but they tend to limit your selection of parts. I don't mind having a tower (especially one with a window and LIGHTS WOO!) so i'll likely stick with them for the time being.

The Aria? It is indeed sextastic. Especially with the blue lights... unfortunatly you cant see them in that shot because a) the HD activity light isn't on (its blue!), and B) both trough lights have burnt out in a year (my only complaint, really), but they do glow a very pretty blue. Here's a promo shot of the case with the trough lights on:





Its really nice to work with too. The top comes off and both side panels (the grey things) slide out, and theres a cradle assembly in the top of the case (it holds the CD drive and HD bay) that lifts out. The biggest challange is sealing the thing up once you're all done, because you've got to make sure all the cables are folding the right way as you close it. Very first time I booted it I actually had a spare end of an IDE cable fall INTO the CPU fan. I heard a *clunk* as the fan hit it, and then the nice panic-inducing "CPU FAN ERROR" message on the monitor. But I got it tucked away properly and she all went fine. Oh, and speaking of fans its a suprisingly quiet case too. I've got four fans in this one (CPU, vid card, a PCI slot blower, and the HUGE honkin 90mm power supply/main vent fan) and shes just a whisper. Also, the 8-in-1 card reader (the goofy slots on the front) are slick too. You can stuff damn near any kind of memory card from a digital cam or PDA or a million other electronic gizmos into the thing.

Really nice case. :)

Thanks!

I think I might actually rebuild it, though - I'd like it to be less bulky and easier to open. I mean, it was easy enough to take it apart when I needed to throw the modem card back in, but putting it back together around the parts proved to be a bit difficult.


I have way too much free time.

This btw, is my quite messy setup:



My Desktop which can be seen under the desk (the blue glow behind the massive mains power floor fan - next best thing after water cooling):
Pentium 4 Prescott 3.2GHz, 800MHz FSB
1024MB DDR400 dual channel (paired) RAM
400GB across 3 HDs (120gb SATA, 200gb SATA, 80gb IDE)
ABIT IS7-E2 motherboard (crap i know :S)
Nvidia 6600GT 256MB AGP8x
BenQ p992 19" CRT Flat Monitor
Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite

My Laptop (el cheapo, don't use it for much):
Acer Aspire 3503WLCi
Celeron M 1.5GHz 400MHz FSB 1MB L2
15.4" WXGA TFT
60GB HDD
512MB Ram
Wireless LAN (of course)

Those 2 plus a couple of servers hooked up through a 24port managed switch and laptop's on a custom-built Linux Wireless Access Point made from my grandma's old computer meets ebay :D.
Also my Old-School HP iPAQ h1930 PDA can be seen plus the all important Bundberg Ginger Beer (non-alcoholic of course).

Some Extras:
USB Cup warmer thanks to the GF (ontop of right speaker)
Cow Jellybean Dispenser (on top of monitor)
Talking Stewy from Family Guy (left of the right speaker)
Hard drive platters acting as a pseudo mirror in top right side of pic (next to Venetians)
Logitech WingMan Force 3D Joystick (bottom left corner)

So that is my beloved setup.

P.S. Amen to Luke's LEGO Chassis... that is awesome. I'd have cooling concerns however :P. Most of my servers don't have proper cases either... one is made out of an old hard cover folder lol

Well I purchased the desktop (not including sound card, monitors, keyboard/mouse) in the summer of 2003 for just under $6000. The soundcard was bought a month later for $150, keyboard and mouse were a set bought a few months after that for $175, I already has a monitor back then so that'd be $6325. Now that 40GB WD hard drive wasn't in there I actually bought a 36GB Raptor but later sold it for various technical reasons.

So without going into too many stories the PC itself was $6400.

Now the monitors are yet another story. I originaly had a 24" CRT that died and I replaced that with two LCD's (the two on the left and right, the Samsung 213t's) for $4100 total. The third LCD is only a month old and it was $900 + $400 for the big stand they're all sitting on.

So in short, $7700 has been spent on my PC between 2003-2006.

I have four servers sitting in my closet which consist of a PIII 600 (Web Server), Dual PIII 1Ghz (Bit Torrent, Domain Controller, Exchange), PII 233 (Logging server, security), and a PII 300 which is my m0n0wall firewall/router. I've also got a Motion Computing TabletPC sitting in my room as well.

I like my computers, what can I say :). That and my home theater (approx $17K) are my two biggest hobbies.

I don't know why I talk on and on about this stuff no one's interested anyways :)

Cheers.

That's a damn nice machine Daphoid...

Lets see is I can remember what I've got in my computer...

AMD Athlon 2000+ (1.67 Ghz)
Gigabyte Mobo...can't remember the model off the top of my head.
1gb PC3200DDR Memory.
Nvidia Geforce 5700FX, 256mb
Creative SoundBlaster Audigy II
A very cheapo case with 4 fans in various places ( I should get an Lian Li case, those are nice)
80 gig HDD, 7200 RPM if I remember correctly,
Samsung DVD-ROM
Samsung CD-RW (52-32-52)
liteon 3.5" floppy (gotta have it)
Window XP SP2 Professional.
2 15" Flat panel moniters.  I really wish I had the money for 2 of those sexy 20" Apple Cinema Displays.

It runs most games really well, and other more recient games I run with moderate frame rate loss.  WOW and Oblivion are the only games I've had to turn the graphics down on.

My Linux box is a little older, all I have it for is a TeamSpeak server:
Asus Mobo of some sort
AMD 400mgz
768 mb RAM
3DFX Voodoo 5
Creative SoundBlaster 32
8gig HDD
30gig HDD
CD-RW (48-16-48)

I do web design / graphic work for my own little "consulting on the side" type deal. Mainly I use it for video games and what not.

I really enjoy it because I can be doing something processor intensive and still do everything I normally do (use outlook calander, chat on IRC, listen to music, and what not).

It wasn't really "spending needlessly" I planned for this computer about 1.5 years before I actually bought it and spent my months saving up for it.

The multimonitors is really a handy thing, I like having the ability to spread everything around and see it all at once.

Okay! New chassis, and better pictures this time.

First, a http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer006.jpg">couple http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer007.jpg">shots of the setup. Please excuse all the snoopies.

Here's the mod:
http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer008.jpg">

And for extra cooling:
http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer009.jpg">

The CD drive is at the very bottom. The power button is right next to the power light, which is the transparent brick above the two black round bricks. Right above those is the floppy drive. The extra thing on top is just a little open-close case to hold a USB extension cord, which is plugged in in the back.

Finally, some extra shots:

You can see the http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer010.jpg">modem card when the lid is up, along with the RAM banks. And yes, those are the only two PCI slots.

Here's a couple shots of http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer011.jpg">the http://www.6prime.net/Images/Stuff/computer012.jpg">back. As you can see, I at least know enough to expose the fan exit.

Oh I love that viao! the design is very nice, keyboard pretty decent, brilliant laptop, tad heavy for me, since I'm already used to a 2.5kg 15inch laptop, yeah the design still quite sexy in itself., if your computer feel slow, all you just need is more RAM, try and get 2x 512mb stick (depend if you have 2x 256mb or 1x 512mb stick in your Viao, if 1x 512mb, then all you need is to get 1x 512mb.)

Yes! Vaio FTW! I'm the proud owner of a Sony VAIO SZ1M/B. 13.3" goodness, weighing in at only 1.85kg.

The specs:
13.3" TFT x-black glossy 1280x800
1.85kg magnesium chassis
Core Duo 1.66ghz
1024mb RAM
Geforce GO 7400 128mb or Intel GMA950 (switchable at startup, either for maximum battery life or for gaming pleasure)
80gb harddisk
DVD-Writer
and a keyboard that sounds and feels just like those old IBM keyboards. Clickclickclick, yay!

And it looks awesome too. I'll take some pictures at some point.
