    What are your current main PC's specs?

    I'm in the process of building a new PC as mine is now getting a bit old to run the latest games at full speed in the higher resolutions. That is mainly down to the 7800GT I'm stlll using, but I think it is time to finally upgrade to a multicore CPU as well.

    So what spec is your current main PC system?

    My new PC will consist of the following:

    • Q6600 CPU
    • Arctic Freezer 7 Pro CPU cooler
    • Asus P5Q Deluxe Motherboard
    • 8GB DDR2 Ram.
    • ATi 4870 1GB Graphics card
    • Creative XFi soundcard
    • 2.5TB SATA HDD space (existing drives)
    • SATA DVD-RW (existing drive)
    • 630W Coolermaster Realpower modular PSU

    And this will be housed in my existing Thermaltake Tsunami case, with my current main system being moved to a Thermaltake Saprano case I also already have (which does have an older system currently in it, but that is being dismantled).

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    My current PC:

    Laptop
    Asus A6VA
    1700 Mhz
    2 GM RAM 533
    80 GB HD
    ATI Radeon x700

    The laptop chip set is Intel but AMD bought ATI, so since then drivers for my ATI dont work as they worked before, i think they prepare the video drivers for AMD machines but my laptop has intel chipset so....

    I have two pc's but I guess my main one is the one I play games on so.

    MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum MS-7025 Motherboard
    AMD Athalon 64 3700+
    4x512mb GIEL dual channel RAM
    PNY GeForce 7800 GS GPU
    I think I have a 150gb HD and a 120gb HD IDE drives and a 750gb SATA
    Razer Krait mouse
    USB Drum kit
    JBL Creature II speakers
    Cheap nasty joypad
    Cheaper nastier keyboard
    Windows XP sp3

    I love this PC even though it is old and well out of date it will have to run games till I can afford a new one, but it has not failed me yet even on assassins creed (it was expensive once over).

    @Rayzorblue

    Your current setup isn't that far from my existing main system spec.

    Athlon 64 4000+
    Asus A8N-SLI Premium
    GeForce 7800GT
    3GB Ram
    etc..

    And that does still run all current games, but not at 1280x1024 or higher resolutions. For most games released recently such as Far Cry 2 I've had to drop them down to 1024x768 to play with smooth framerates over 30fps with the nicer texture and shadow settings switched on.

    Assassins Creed and even Crysis ran very well which was quite a surprise when i tried them. Assassins Creed ran especially well at 1280x1024 with most of the graphics settings quite high up. Crysis had to be dropped to 1024x768 to run with higher settings, but it ran higher with medium settings quite well. However with falling hardware prices I thought it was time to upgrade as the core bits of my existing system (motherboard, CPU, GPU) has just reached 3 years old, and the games now being released beefit a lot from a multicore CPU finally.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Because it's in the PC Gaming and general chat section?

    Exactly.

    We might mainly be an Amiga site, but we all also like all things computer, console and retro related so like to chat about everything.
