Post your main working/gaming rig for all to see

What system do you use most daily/weekly, is it cutting edge tech or old gear slower then a Pentium 1 100Mhz?


my rig:

Processing: A64 3000+ S754 with 1GB Ram
Video& Sound: 6800GT / Audigy2 ZS Pro / 2x 17"TFT / 5.1 THX Creative Soundworks
Storage: about 400GB divided over a few HDDs (Raptor 74GB for games) + 12x Plextor DVDRW
Case&Power: Coolermaster miditower with 550W PSU
Cooling: Scythe Samurai and 4x80mm casefans

things to improve: CPU cooling & case cooling: it's way too loud

I have a few I use daily; I'd say three of them being on 16 hours/day.

This one I use slightly more -

Processing: A64 3000+ S939 with 1GB Ram
Video & Sound: 6200PCX/Onboard
Storage: 160GB SATA; DVD & 16X DVD RW
Case & Power: Cheapo X-Dreamer II, 500W S-12
Cooling: JMC Pheonix 70 + Chill Vent II with 5x80mm case fans & 7 Volt ~1,800 RPM, 44 dBA 12 inches away.

Things to improve: None, it serves my purpose well.

This is the one I normaly use the most

Processing: AXP2500+ (barton)@2.2Ghz
Video& Sound: 9600Pro (474/324)/NvNF² Soundstorm & Ozika HM30Q3
Storage: 120Gb WD SATA hdd, NEC 8x dlDVD+-RW
Case&Power: No case & Aopen 350w
Cooling: Thermalright SLK947u, TT Smart Case Fan2 (cpu), 92mm titan ,(power-reg, mostly off), 60mm unknown (memory).

The system I use most would be my laptop:
Dell Inspiron 510m
Intel Pentium Mobile 1.4GHz
512MB RAM (2*256)
60 GB hard drive
DVD/CD-rw combo
Intel gaphics
Dell wireless b/g
15" screen, 1400*1050

this is alway on unless it's dying battery ran out. Runs eve online when I'm home, and I use it for work and GPS. It's not quite as actively used as my main rig, but still.
