ah, the mandatory thread.
if it helps:
the gaming rig: (doubles as audio/video studio production stuff and synthesizer design and everything non dedicated)
MBO: gigabyte z77x-d3h
CPU: core i7-3770 @ 3.4ghz
MEM: 32GB corsair xms3 @ quad config 1333mhz
GFX: GTX Titan (1st gen 6GB i think?)
DSK: SSDs + HDD's, lots and lots with external powerbricks patched on (don't try this at home, kids. no, really, don't...)
SND: focusrite scarlett 2i4 + 2x scarlett 2i2 2nd gen
AMP: behringer A500
SPK: heco superior 950 (woot)
SPK: magnat shadow 207 (disappointed, but ok for gaming)
HP1: beyerdynamic 770pro headphones (woot)
HP2: qpad GH-85 headset (disappointed, but ok for gaming)
SCR: 2x hp zr2440w (woot)
KYB: logitech g510s (disappointed, repeated keystrokes on single keypress, wtf)
MOU: logitech g602 mouse (woot, feels like eternal battery life!)
CTR: xbox360 wireless
CTR: logitech g940 flight set (in hospital mode, since the throttle buttons died and i still did not fix it)
using papst fans, nothing overclocked, all stock settings, runs almost everything at max settings like a charm at steady 60fps, keeps cool and silent as a purring kitty.
all in all, this desktop never disappointed, been upgrading it since i first built it in 1997, while in the meantime every component was replaced multiple times already, except for a few HDDs, but those are dying a slow death by sectorfailures, so i might have to replace a few TB worth of 90's and 00's disks with new stuff, but with today's prices i guess that's ok... tower only replaced once, the old one being a viper big tower, the "new" one being an anubis case from highperformacnce group. still very happy with it.
next to the desktop theres some mobile workstations with midi controllers hooked up, dedicated for live performance production and light synthesizer design. luckily, those are incapable of gaming, i want to focus on work from time to time, you know how that is...
Oh, yeah... Back in the Cage...
