Guess I'll celebrate my quasi return with a post for updated battlestations.

Current specs:

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 @3.8Ghz w/DeepCool Gammaxx 400
16GB (2x8GB) G Skill TridenZ DDR4-2933
ASRock X370 Gaming K4
EVGA GTX 970 SSC
Fractal Design Define S
XFX XTR 550 PSU
256GB Samsung m.2 PCIe SSD, 2x500GB SATA SSD, 1x2TB HDD and 1x1TB HDD
Triple monitors, all arm mounted, Corsair K70 keyboard and Logitech G502, Corsair Void Pro Wireless USB Headset

Someday I'll have all matching monitors.




Edit: going to remove that one because of some of the figures I have that I forgot about

I gotta get with the times. I'm still on an i7 4771 and a GTX 1070, but I quit gaming so no real need for impressive hardware anymore.

I did a sleeper build in an HP Mini-ATX tower with the following specs. A huge step up from a Core 2 Quad Q6600 which became a huge bottleneck with newer graphics cards.

AMD Ryzen 3 1300X @ stock speed
16GB Corsair DDR4-3000 RAM @ 2933MHz XMP2 timings
EVGA Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
Samsung 960EVO 500GB M.2 SSD
Samsung 850EVO 1TB 2.5" SSD
Corsair RM550 PSU
Bluray drive

Peripherals:
LG 27" 4K monitor
Edifier 4" internal amp bookshelf speakers
Logitech K840 mech kb
Razer Mamba TE mouse
Solid wood dinner table desktop with pullout sides.


Older pic with the Sandisk SSD that I swapped for a Samsung SSD.

No pics but I built a VM/photo/light gaming machine at the end of last year

Ryzen 7 1700
ASRock X370 Gaming K4
32GB RAM
256 GB Crucial m.300 mSATA SSD
Re-used OWC 1TB SATA SSD
2x 4TB Seagate 5900 RPM drives (RAID0)
2x Asus RX560 2GB Video cards
Pulled from USB3 enclosure - WD Green 4TB
2x LG 27UD58-B 27" IPS 4K UHD LED Monitors (caught on sale for $299)

Runs multiple VM's like a dream and plows through video.

I'm still rocking my vintage Mac Pro with 16GB of RAM, 480GB SSD and 2TB storage drive. It needs a new video card however, as the 5850 just isn't cutting it.

I make do with a lowly ROG Asus GL552VW with a 1TB HDD. I mostly play Steel Ocean and War Thunder which seem to work fine although I don't like to play on super high quality just to keep the temps down. I was going to get a SSD but haven't really needed it yet.

I'll share mine - it's a older picture, so some things are missing in it.


Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
ASUS Sabertooth Z77
Swiftech H220 Liquid CPU cooler
Intel i5-3570k @ 4.2Ghz "Ivy Bridge"
8GB (2x4) G.Skill DDR3 1600 Sniper Low voltage RAM
ASUS GTX 970 STRIX
PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750w Quad PSU - This things 4 months shy of being 10 years old, and still kicking; I carried it over from my last build that I put together in 7/2008.
1xSamsung 128GB SSD (OS), 1xSamsung 500GB SSD that's for game storage, 2x1TB Western Digital Black Drives
Acer 27" Monitor, Samsung 24" monitor
daskeyboard Ultimate S
Logitech G5 Mouse "The Original one" - which is going on something like 12-13 years old if I were to guess, I can't remember exactly. It's showing it age, but the buttons click the same as the day it was new; in which I think is amazing.
Blue Yeti Microphone
Creative Fatality Headset













Since only one person mentioned what they play, the next question is: what games do you play on your rigs for those of you that haven't shared it.




I'm currently bouncing between these games:

World of Tanks
Total War:Warhammer II
Ghost Recon:Wildands
and most recently, I'm really enjoying Kingdom Come:Deliverance - which despite it's bugs is a really fun game that no other developer has done.





On a side note, I really want to have a cleaner set-up; for example matching monitors with arm mounts like the OP, a way nicer desk but never got around to it. In addition I've also had the itch to build a new system, and give this one to my son: but holy [censored] the DDR4 RAM prices & GPU prices are ridiculous.
