This was my first gaming computer ever, and it's my current. I built it myself over a few years when I was younger. It's a bit messy, and I want a new rig, but nonetheless here are some pics of what I'm running right now. it runs things quite well, not many performance issues.

 

Specs:

  • Processor: AMD Phenom II (Quad Core) 965 @ 3.40 GHz
  • Cooler: CoolerMaster Hyper 103
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5
  • RAM: 20gb (mixed frequencies and brands -- runs ok, not great; no major issues)
  • Storage: 1x 3tb HDD, 1x 1tb HDD, 1x 500gb HDD
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3gb GDDR5 VRAM
  • Case: Corsair Carbide 400R
  • Power Supply: Corsair GS600
  • Case Fans: 8x varying sizes (not incl. cpu cooler, gpu fans) [11 total fans]
  • Monitor: 1x Viewsonic VA2431, 1x Acer H233H
  • Keyboard: Razer DeathStalker
  • Mouse: Razer DeathAdder
  • Key Peripheral: Razer Nostromo
  • Headphones: Razer Kraken Pro (using Razer Surround Pro)
  • Controller: Steam Controller

Anyway, there we go. That's my rig I've had since I was younger. Looking to build a new one from the ground up soon.

 

Thanks for checking it out!

I like it a lot, actually. At first I didn't like it and regretted getting it, but after getting used to the dual touchpads, it's very nice. KDR still lower than when I used the 360 controller in FPS games, however it's recovering (slowly).

 

I also got a Steam Link to pair it with. Playing in the living room on the big screen has really never been easier.

Looking good man. I have the Steam controller too, but I use it on my TV with the steam link (which still needs work).
