    Hey Nixy,

    Nice machines, bit overkill with the two GTX295’s and the i7 920 only at stock tho. 😛
    Also I’m loving the Copperhead and Tarantula myself.

    Personally I like to play with my hardware more (overclocking and soft- and hardware tweaking).

    My rigs:

    Gaming/work rig
    CPU: Intel Core2 Q9550 @ 3.8Ghz (water cooled)
    RAM: 8GB PC-8500
    GFX: HD5870
    MoBo: Gigabyte GA-x48-DS4
    Storage: 5x 500GB (Still want a SSD)
    Monitors: 2x 24″ Samsung SyncMaster (want to get a 3rd to try Eyefinity)

    LAN Box
    CPU: Intel Core2 Q6600 @ 3Ghz
    RAM: 4GB PC-8500
    GFX: HD4870 512MB
    Storage: WD Raptor 74GB

    CPU: AMD Athlon X2 6000+
    RAM: 4GB PC-6400
    GFX: 8800 GT
    MoBo: Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
    Storage: 1x 250GB (Boot) + 3x 1TB (Storage)

    Yes I do use all that HDD space as well. :/

  • gaming computers should have multiple cpu cores and a lot of memory to support those heavy graphics ;”
