Desktop :
Core 2 Quad @ 2.4 (x4, Captain Obvious)
2GB Ram DDR2
Geforce 7400GT 1GB
Forgot how much HDD (probably 320 or 500)

Laptop (brand new):
i7-471HQ (2.5-3.5 Turbo)
8GB Ram DDR3
Geforce GTX850m 4GB
1To HDD.

Old laptop  :
Core 2 Duo t5550 (1.83GHz * 2 (or 1 if I had a linux kernel > 3.10))
3 GB RAM (maybe DDR2)
GeForce 8600M 512MB
160 GB HDD.

Now feel my hapiness to be able to run games at full speed and full graphisms! :3


Nice laptop, I was considering buying one with similar slightly worse specs. I went with a desktop because I could build it at my own speed.

My desktop is enough for programming on Linux at the moment, my laptop will give me a powerful work and play station for years to come.

Jk my actual specs are the following:

Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.80 GHz (first gen)
1 Terabytes hard drive + 2 external 2 TB drives (one of which has defective USB plug, tho, cuz it often ends up disconnected)
Windows 7 SP1 64 bits
Video card: AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
Sound card: Realtek High Definition Audio

I find it funny that despite my computer dating back in early 2010 (or 2009, depending of how long it was on store shelves), I still have twice more RAM than most people and most computers sold today. Even today I rarely use more than 50% of my RAM.

My video card would probably not run most recent games, though. I get lag in Starcraft HotS expansion sometimes when playing 4 vs 4 with large armies.


If you're planning on getting a new graphics card I would recommend nvidia gtx 750ti, for under $150 it can run anything.
I'd also recommend Asus because they have good card tweak tools so you can overclock and stuff.


New here and didn't know where to start so Ill start here I guess.

Welcome and how's the 970? I'm planning on getting the Asus one. Nice build too, did you buy it and upgrade it or build it yourself?

Buy instead the 4970K, it's overclockable and can easily reach the 5GHz

The 970 is really impressive, I bought the EVGA superclocked edition with the acx 2.0 cooler right after it was released when it was only 340 dollars and it has been able to handle everything I've thrown at it. I also recently got a 4k monitor and havent played many games on it yet but most will run great at 60 fps. last I saw it has gone up quite a bit in proce but it is still more than worth it.

Thanks, I built it myself. It started out as a small upgrade to my old machine but I ended up replacing everything except the power supply.

I agree completely, for the slightly higher cost you can get much more performance out of the unlocked version. I only have the 4970 because I saw one on ebay for about 140 dollars, I wasn't even looking for a CPU at the time but I couldn''t pass it up for that price.


I bought the 8350 for $130. If I could go back I might change it but I still have to keep my build under $1k so...

* aeTIos walks for street to blast everyone away with Akatsuki ;D

I have several computers, I'll list them here:

Laptop: Acer Aspire 771G 'Azusa' running Arch
17.3" matte 1080p screen
i5 mobile something (2.5-3.1GHz dual hyper)
Intel HD Graphics 4000
NVidia GeForce GT630M (1 GB DDR3) via Optimus

Laptop: Acer Aspire One ZG5 (no hostname worth mentioning [actually the whole laptop is not worth mentioning])
8.9" glossy 1024*600 screen
Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz hyper)
Intel GMA950
trivia: battery is so dead a full one lasts about 6 minutes when idle. Also contains its own mass in dust.

Desktop: dell running XP (I dont even know the password x.x)
?" matte 1024*768 screen
1.2GHz singlecore (or so, never really checked)
NVidia GeForce2MX [175MHz, 64MB] (This thing was a beast when it came out)
1x60+1x250GB HDD [one of them was once damaged by me; accidentally boot sector when taking it out. Saved data by running ubuntu 8.04 from a CD]
640/768 MB RAM (originally 512 but I plugged another card in and I'm not sure if its 128 or 256 mb) might be ddr 2 but probably ddr1. Definitely not ddr3 :P
trivia: this was the second PC we ever got. It's from Oct 2001. Yes, that's old and it's a miracle it still works.
And I might get a semi more recent desktop from my dad for he rarely uses it anymore.
