I couldn't find a thread like this in the tech discussion - which surprised me. So I've decided to take the liberty and post one myself.

Motherboard: NForce 780i Graphics: eVGA GTX 280 RAM: 4 GB DDR2 1066Mhz CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550

Recently upgraded. I'm very happy with this machine, it can run Crysis on highest settings, with 8x AA, with no slow downs at all!

What about you?

You'll find a lot of us here have our specs in our signatures. :)

Anyway, seeing as I'm at college, I don't have my good computer, so I'm stuck with this laptop. It's a Dell Studio 15, and considering it was meant for media stuff, it's not too bad for gaming.

Actually, there have been quite a few threads like this. My main rig is in my sig. And my AWESOME laptop has 1.5ghz Celeron 384mb DDR ram 15gb hard drive dvd-rom BROKEN BATTERY 15" screen. Its pretty much awesome for playing old games on it.

Probably because you didn't perform a good search ^^ There were at least those already :p :

What about you?

No spec bragging threads, what, are you blind?

Saying you can run Crysis on highest settings and 8x AA without even saying what res you play at is kinda pointless.

OK, back on topic. My plans to build a better rig have been pushed back 2 or 3 times. It started with my originally planning an E6700, 8800GTX, 2GB rig end of '07. Then I heard of the plans Nvidia had for their 1 billion transistor GPU and decided to wait for that. I sufficed Nov '07 with a $180 upgrade to get me by, going from an X800XT to a refurbed X1950Pro and doubled my RAM. It was well under 10% of the original cost of the tower.

The end of '07 plan got pushed back to end of '08 when I heard of Intel's plan to build an integrated quad with MC and Quick Path interconnects. Now I'm debating waiting until end of '09 for the smaller die DX11 GPUs, and maybe even a bit longer if the smaller die i7s and W7 are released soon after.

Suffice it to say, I don't want to get stuck feeling like I want to upgrade a yr or two after building it and I've only been using this last upgrade for a little over a yr anyway. Despite going through a few pains clinging to old tech though, I have been impressed with my current rig's capabilities, which have gone beyond my expectations.

It plays 4 or 5 games that are supposed to be for dual core only at playable frame rates, including some quite well like Stranglehold and Far Cry 2. I've also come up with a few performance tweaks which I've shared with others having aging spec on games like Crysis and Warhead, one of which can even help those with modern spec.

Honestly, part of what's kept me patiently waiting for the right parts to hit the market before I build a new rig is realizing that often the performance problems with modern PC games is more the fault of poor developing rather than my aging spec. I quite often hear even people with high end rigs complain of poor performance.

That doesn't give me too much incentive to build a new gaming machine until I see a hardware AND software platform that will REALLY do something toward better gaming performance. Hopefully when i7s, DDR3, and the upcoming smaller die GPUs mature, along with W7 and DX11 integrating into the mix well, we'll see less PC gaming development problems.

Showing off PC spec is no better than bragging about sp achievement points though, kinda ridiculous. UNLESS you use it to convey all pluses AND minuses, as not all games make use of some high end gear well. That being said, I'll mention my meager current spec.

"Yeah dual core games, take that!", (in a Bill Paxton shooting acid filled lizards dropping through the ceiling way). "You want some more,...oh you too?",....OK, I think I just got eaten by a lag lizard. Guess I'll have to build that new rig after all.
