    This thread is dedicated to those of us who like talking about computers.

    Some of us may have custom built PC's and should share with the rest of us. Even if its not the most fantastic looking build or the top of the line products still post up!! :)

    This thread is NOT for a PC vs Mac debate!!

    I'd have to look, it's been 3yrs I think since I built a system. Probably very uninspiring spec wise.

    Well what's the specs? My case, hard drive and mouse are 3 years old ;)

    I thought I had new(er) pictures of my PC but I don't..

    I have an older picture (from 2009) but I have since replaced the white optical drive with a black optical drive since my case is black (looks better), I have replaced the free HP keyboard (tan color) with a black free Dell keyboard, I no longer have desktop speakers (just use a headset) and lastly I don't have the headset pictured anymore.

    Current Desk and PC Setup (except for white optical drive was swapped with black optical drive, HP keyboard was replaced with black Dell keyboard, no longer have desktop speakers and headset was replaced with a better one)

    Old Setup (Still have the same case but upgraded motherboard, processor, power supply, video card, memory and optical drive)

    Webby: I use to have a Core 2 Duo E6200 before I upgraded to the AMD Quad-Core. Not a bad processor. I got it when I worked at Best Buy through an accomadation promotion

    ic... I was just looking at the pic above, and saw 1 card. I know there are single cards that can support 4, I just didn't know how you did it.

    The pictures only show one video card.

    That desk looks so small yet so inviting.
