Let's get a PC specs thread going!


#1

If you game on a PC, what’s your specs? Mine’s not GREAT but I can play most games at 60FPS oh high.

i5-2500K @4.2
RX 480 8GB
16GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600


#2

Feast ur eyes on my soon to be obsolete gaming laptop:

Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M

RAM 16 GB (DDR3 I believe)


#3

Older computer but just replaced an aging 770 which will probably give me a few more years out of this.

Intel i7-4790 @ 3.6 GHz
GTX 1060 6 GB
16 GB DDR3
250 GB SSD, enough to hold a game or four, and lots of storage for everything else.


#4

Currently have:
Intel i5-2500k @ 4.3 (was 4.4 but that crashed like once every month or two so I kicked it down)
GTX 770
8GB DDR3
250GB SSD

And a laptop with a Core i5-5200u, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

The laptop’s fine for my use case but the gaming rig’s starting to show its age a bit and I’m probably going to build a new one next year.


#5

i5-2500K @ 4.8GHz (can just about clock to 5GHz if desperate for single-threaded performance, for example when Forza Horizon 3 launched and I really wanted 60fps).
GTX 1070 OC
24GB DDR3 [16GB when hitting 5GHz on the CPU - can’t run 4 slots while stable] (1866MHz - can’t really justify buying new RAM when really I should be getting DDR4 and a new system sooner rather than later)
Various 250GB Samsung SSDs (830 onwards)

I’m also on the old PC, new GPU kick because who doesn’t want to drain every drop of value out of a 2011 system (but seriously, Intel and AMD have to actually make the case for buying a new CPU that’s not either buying more cores but worse [congrats to AMD for getting back into the game with Ryzen but also how many games will actually run slower if I upgrade my system and how is that a thing?] or a marginal upgrade that’s probably got more to do with faster RAM than the mild increase in IPC each generation but a lower ceiling on overclocking).

Also have a Surface Pro 4 (i7) that shows a shocking capability to run some games considering the Intel drivers are never going to be great and most games are only optimised for AMD and nVidia (because virtually no one has anything above the non-Iris Intel GPU so they’re not meant to be used for games).


#6

one might expect a machine as alright as this to emulate metroid prime at full speed

they’d be wrong


#7

Intel i5-6500 @ 3.2 GHz
GTX 1060 6GB
8 GB DDR4

I can play most games on high but I only really care about the framerate.


#8

You could sell it for a pretty penny and invest in a good GPU, honestly.


#9

FX8320 (OC to 4GHz)
HTC 1060FE
16GB RAM
960gb SSD


#10

i5-4690 (nice)
16GB RAM
GTX 1060 6GB
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB

Hopefully do me for a while yet, 1060 was a late purchase recently, I 1080p game so I should be good.


#11

i’m still gaming on a laptop with an i7-2630 and a GTX560M. what are you talking about


#12

How’s that AMD CPU? Having a 6 year old i5, I want to upgrade, but I don’t have the cash for the newest Intel or Ryzen.


#13

I’m ok with it for a while. I don’t really want to hop on the desktop treadmill at the moment.


#14

As long as you’re happy with it, that’s all that matters!


#15

In a Cooler Master elite 130. 4k steam overlay on the TV is real bad ya’ll.


#16

Oooo boy, that looks good.


#17

I bought this PC from my sister’s boyfriend, who moved overseas and couldn’t bring it with him:

i7 2600K
GTX 980
16GB DDR3 RAM
1TB HDD

The whole computer bar the graphics card is quite old, but hopefully that GTX 980 will keep it kicking for a few more years.


#18

Have you overclocked the i7?


#19

You know what they say: Obsolescence is a state of mind.

Someone’s probably said that.


#20

I think it’s running at like 4~4.3GHz? I haven’t really looked into it; but I think that is a bit higher than stock clocks?
