So what's everyone running anyways?

Curious as to what specs everyone is running. I, myself, am running a decent rig for gaming. Far from high end but it plays everything I want to play pretty damn well.

Gigabyte 970-d3p
FX 6300 OC’d to 4.2
Hyper 212 Evo
16 GB DDR3 Patriot Ram @ 1600 Mhz
Raidmax 850AE PSU
Patriot Blaze 60 GB (OS ONLY)
Corsair Neutron SSD 256 GB
Seagate 2 TB 7200 RPM HDD
Windows 10 64x Pro
All sitting pretty in a Corsair Air 540

Also I’m using a JTD mouse and a TSSports Challenger Keyboard because my Lobitech g105 started squeeking at me

My laptop is an old Toshiba Satellite s855d I use for my classes and I have an old ass Windows 98 laptop that has a whopping 46 MB ram and 2 MB Vram that got given to me by my old lady’s grandpa. (It’s kinda cool, how old it is.) Oh yeah and my Raspberry Pi 3 is fun to mess around with as well.

LetsGetIt1220 what would anyone say besides, nice rigs!


ShiftySatchmo Lots man, unfortunately. People normally have lots to say :confused:


LetsGetIt1220 people can be douchey. Good thing we have rule #1! I’ll moderate the jive out of anyone who is a jealous jerk bag.


ShiftySatchmo Yeah, believe it or not, the one that upsets me the most is when people say I’m lucky when the hear about it. Like nah, luck ain’t had shit to do with any of it, it’s all me :dagger:

But yeah, thank goodness for Rule 1!


ShiftySatchmo The mods on this site suck. Katsuo just runs a muck all over the place completely unchecked. XD
