    Old thread but I'll add my rig in because I can.

    Intel Core i5 2500K overclocked at 4.6GHz cooled by a Corsair H80.
    ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 mother board.
    16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz RAM
    1x Samsung 840EVO 250GB SSD for OS and programs, 1x Samsung 840EVO 500GB SSD for games, 1x Seagate 2TB 7200rpm HDD for storage.
    Asus ROG GTX580 Matrix Platinum graphics card
    Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card
    Cosair AX1200 power supply
    Samsung BluRay drive

    All of this is neatly placed into a Cosair Obsidian 600D case with a 200mm front intake fan, 200mm top exhaust fan plus the H80 is mounted with 2 120mm fans exhausting in a push pull fashion out the back.

    Connected to this is a Max Nighthawk X7 mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches and O-ring mod, Steel Series Sensei mouse, Razer Nostromo pad (have used one for gaming since the Belkin N52), Audio Technica ATH-AD900 headphones, Audio Technica AT202USB microphone and two Asus VS24H monitors.

    I built this thing to play BF3 and it has served its purpose well into BF4. I play on a 24" 1080p monitor so i get between 50 and 70FPS in BF4 with everything on high. It started out with a single Crucial M4 128GB SSD, then I switched to two Samsung 840EVO 250GB SSDs before recently throwing one of those into my notebook and buying the 500GB SSD for this. The keyboard is recent also as now that I'm studying software development I do a whole lot more typing and the small Logitech keyboard I had wasn't up to the task. For games I use the Nostromo and never needed a decent keyboard before. Aside from that it's all as I originally built it, aside from a few cable management sessions and adding the sound card in their at some point when I got the AD900 headphones.

    I want to upgrade the graphics card soon as I think that's the weakest link and if I replaced the CPU I'd be up for a new motherboard also. I've done some testing with the CPU running stock and running overclocked and it didn't make a massive improvement to FPS so I think it can last until we see what X99 and Broadwell are all about. I think two 770's in SLI would be sweet but I'll wait for GTX800 cards to show up to see what they're like. I'm also toying with the idea of a Mini-ITX build in a Corsair 250D or Micro-ATX build in a Fractal ARC Mini R2 case if I go the new CPU and MoBo route.

    Nice looking system there.

    Only thing I have done with mine since I posted here is add a second R9-280X card. Don't really play games as much as I'd like to these days, but that's another story for another time.

    I would love to play games a lot more than I do.
    When I do it's a mixture of F1 2015, Assetto Corsa, RaceRoom, with a bit of Forza 6 on the Xbox One.
    When not driving GTA V, And i'm actually playing COD from No1 right thru to the newer ones.
    Can't stand playing online. Just don't play enough of either game & just get slaughted lol

    Will update this when I get home as I'll probably get the specs wrong.

    So ditched the laptop and have moved onto a desktop

    i7 4770 3.4ghz
    16gb ram (upgrading to 32gb)
    GT630 (soon to be replaced with a GTX760ti)
    Samsung EVO850 500gb boot drive.
    Seagate 2tb data drive.
    About 12tb of external storage.
    All in a shitty case atm, possibly will swap it over to my Cooler Master Cosmo S case.

    Once the video card is in I'll be looking at going to a three monitor setup of either 24" or 27".

    I don't even play games on it.......

    Computers here got on/off button, rest of the specs no idea at all. Renew them once in a while. One of them is an awesome machine, very old, running on xp. The last one i got is a month old so i guess some of the latest specs. Other than that, got heaps of 2 and 3 tb drives full of data.
