Retro gaming PC build with best parts from 2000. Video is an entire build log and overview of the parts used as well as some short clips in game. The "glamour shots" begin at about 10:45. What a beauty. R.I.P. 3dfx.

7680x1440 set-up. :D

Crappy pick now as I'm still working on stuff. I'll post better pics once I've got the new fans in and stuff put away.

My sister always get my old pc, when I buy a new one for myself. This time hers broke down so I had to think about a new one for her or a new one for me and the old one for her  :lol:

Since my girlfriend and me wanted a good entertainment system and I need a good system for games, we decided to kill some money.

My sis got my old one (P7) + a new 22" LCD and two 512MB XFX GeForce 9600GT XXX GDDR3 DVI TVo PCIe because one of the old ones makes terrible sounds. Sold them to a friend with a new cooler.

So I use now since this month(as very early X-Mas gift :w00t:) the following with a total of 2800€

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9850 4x2500MHz 4x512kB AM2+ Box Black Editon
Cooler : Thermalright IFX-14 AMD Heatsink S AM2/AM2+
Fans :  140x140x20 Aerocool Streamliner led lights silver , 2 for the cpu-cooler, 1 for the bottom of the case
Board : Asus Crosshair II Formula AM2+ NF780a HTB 5200MT PCIe ATX
RAM : 2x2048MB Kit G.Skill 4GBPI 1100MHz CL5 , two sets, in total 8GB, limit of the board :(
Graphic : 512MB MSI Geforce N9800GTX Plus-T2D512-OC GDDR3 DVI TVo PCIe , two over SLI
Sound : Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro Series , together with the onboard sound, i can play, while my girl is watching DVD
HDD : 1000GB Samsung Spinpoint F1 32MB SATA 2 Retail , two of them, in total with one of my old hdd, 2,5TB
Blue-Ray : LiteOn DVD Blu-Ray R/RW/DL/RAM SATA
Power : Aerocool HorsePower - 1020 Watt
Case : Thermaltake Xaser VI Super Tower G4000BNS                                 

Screen : 26" Samsung SyncMaster T260 Rose Black 5ms 20000:1 DVI-D/HDMI
Sound : Logitech Z Cinema
Keyboard : Logitech Ultra-Flat Keyboard black
Mouse : Logitech G9 Laser Mouse

TV runs over a 46" Samsung LE46A557 30000:1 Full HD 1080p since end of juli, a gift for the 1.2 Abitur of my girlfriend.



And there it goes to hell  :OMG: :dizzy: :depressed:

Totally burned down. The power pack had a short circuited and four condensers burned, that shot on the 5V-line 16A through the system and completely killed everything except one RAM and the big HDD!

Just ordered a new system. For more place this time a bigtower.



I really  :bow: that I can restore the data on my terrabyte-hdd, 800GB with japanese movies, doramas and my collection with mp3's and pv's from H!P. A desaster, if this is destroyed.
The harddisk itself runs, just the boot directory is gone. If I can restore the data, this wil need muuuuch time to sort everything  :nervous
Even I have got similar configuration and it is working well for me.. NO problem at all

The Breakdown in 2009 is not a thing, that happens often. Problem there was, that the powerpack sent a massive peak through ALL components on the 5V line and killed them.
And I don't use faulty cheap components. But defects tend to happen even with good equipment :D


My actual config is here.

Been over six years since I last updated my computer so I figured... it's time.

CPUXeon E3-1230V3 - Haswell / 4 cores / 8 threads - 3.3GHz (3.7Ghz turbo)
MoboGigabyte H87-HD3
GPUMSI Nvidia Geforce GTX 770 Twin Frozr (IV) OC
RAMKingston 16gb (2x8) 1333 (1600 XMP)
PSUXFX 750W Pro (semi-modular)
SSDSamsung 840 Evo 250gb
CaseAntec P182 ATX mid tower
HDDs2 x Western Digital Caviar Green 3tb
MonitorBenQ G2400W 24" 1920x1200
StuffRazer Lycosa + Lachesis (seen better days) + Xbox 360 Controller/receiver

The case, monitor and peripherals (and one of the hdd's) are not new. The Xeon is a "workstation" CPU almost on par with an I7 4770. I'm not interested in overclocking, don't need an igpu and some other things, and it was a lot cheaper, so it seemed like a great choice. Everything else is pretty obvious, I guess. Wasn't sure at first the old case cooling + the cpu stock cooling would do the trick but everything is running nice and cold without any extra noise, so far at least. I haven't tried any major stress tests yet, just been running a few not so super-demanding games (BL2 etc) on max settings and the GPU peaked at 50c, CPU even lower. I'm aware that Haswell can be pushed to some crazy temperatures though, hahhah. We'll see how it goes.

Many thanks to Nazu and Forthisgift for helping me pick all the new parts. :thumbup

New benchmarks for me under Windows 8.1: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/1434014?

10965 vs. 10908 under 8.0.

I do like that my Ivy Bridge + 690 PC beats their Haswell + Titan baseline. :D

Been over a year without any major hardware upgrades so now I decided to get a new videocard :) Picked up a second hand GTX 780 and ordered a Coolermaster Seidon 240M AIO watercooler for the cpu. Hoping to get 4,5GHz out of the 2500K and max out the videocard too (reference model so nothing crazy).

Just ordered an Asus Aspire S7-392-6402 Ultrabook for a thin and light to take travelling and to coffee shops.

Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-4200U
Memory: 8 GB
Storage: 128 GB solid state drive
Display: 13.3” Full HD IPS touch (1920 x 1080)
Communications: webcam, 802.11a/g/n, Bluetooth® 4.0

Under 3 pounds, and even better the color matches my Xperia Z1 phone. :D


That came with the goddamned awful Canadian Multilingual keyboard, so I had to return it.

Ordered a Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus instead. Very similar specs except a 3200x1800 screen, i7-4500U and a 256gb SSD.
