Let's see your gaming set up


Recommended Posts

Gonna be a couple weeks before I have my new rig set up.

Will be in one of these cases.

  • Case: Thermaltake Core X9
  • Motherboard: ASRock X570 Taichi Razer
  • Memory: TridentZ Neo DDR4000 (64GB)
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5950X
  • CPU Cooler: Alphacool Eisbaer 420mm AIO
    Eisbaer420a.thumb.jpg.785149cf2b35ab24de37de841b11e9c1.jpg
  • Drives:
    • 3x M.2 Samsung 980 Pro (1TB)  (OS, SQL, VM/Scratch Disk
    • 4x 10TB Western Digital (RAID10)
  • GPU: Recycling my RTX 2060 because new GPUs are essentially UNOBTAININUM right now.  And no blue kitty people in sight!
  • Keyboard: unsure at this point.  Will probably start with my Logitech G510 and then figure out what I wanna do.
  • Mouse: Recycling my Steel Series Rival 310
  • Sound: Recycling my Steel Series Arctis 5 to start.  Will think more about it later.

 

So the system's going to wind up looking almost identical to my current rig in the end.
Though I might affix the carcass of the second case to the first to stack.  Then throw my networking equipment in there.
Haven't decided.

Oh, and notice the way the monitors don't fit flush?
Finally decided I'm sick of that.  I ordered a new armature system that'll allow me to better position the screens so I don't get that stupid screen jog.

Basically my current box lasted 11 years.  And I'm only rebuilding now because the motherboard is in a slow death spiral.

So I'm building what is PRIMARILY a workstation rig that should still boot behind in CoH (I don't actually game much beyond that anymore).

Sweet Christmas! Does CoH stretch across all three screens?

Getting sorted after a move. Down to one bigger screen and I'm not complaining.

 

Ryzen 7 3700

Geforce GTX1080 (was going to be upgraded with this gen of cards, but... ha, yeah, right. Maybe next year.)

32 Gb RAM

Gobs of storage.

Yeah.  Noticing that while these screens are GREAT, 27" 4K at 100% (no) magnification results in nearly unreadable text.
And I'm less enthused about Windows screen magnification.
I have an office remodel at some point in my future.  Have to rebuild a wall.  So what I may do is build it into a desk area.
Recess the wall a smidge.  And replace the trio with one big monitor.
Maybe a 120hz TV in the 50-70" range running 4 or 8 K.

Well, your old rig at least didn't have a cabling issue.  You could use a bit of a cleanup with the current rig.  Looks like you're using a round screen, is that right?.  Stylish.  I hear the oscillation wave is all the rage.

You people all have such incredibly tidy desks.

ETA: You have just shamed me into finally putting away the box for the new mouse I got for Christmas.

Awesome keyboard! 

 

Thank you!  It's a Unicomp that I bought about 20 ago, after the household upgraded to TWO computers and I found out that IBM no longer made the Model M.

Ah.  The old Antec quiet case!  Cut my hands up on a bunch of those back in the day...

Only because I *literally* just moved into the place on the 1st... and the PC was set up a few days after that.

I'm surprised you haven't taken out the panels and affixed them together against some custom made, rigid frame or something. :p
