Post Dead gaming PC
The box I built for playing WAR, used for Aion and Rift has died. It's interesting that it died, you know--given that it was turned off for a month and revealed its death upon trying to boot it up.

I built the box for the release of WAR over 3 years ago; it's only seen two minor upgrades. I'd honestly say I got my $450 worth out of it. :)

Time to start piecing together the next one; hopefully I can come in around that same price--difficult to say though, I got a tremendous deal on a vid card that time around.

I've got 12gigs and it's pretty much overkill. But with memory so cheap it's pretty much why the hell not.

*edit*

Hell here are my current specs

i7 920 2.6ghz @ 3.8Ghz with a corsair H60 water cooling system
12gb memory
250gb SSD(system drive) - Love these things and will be raiding soon
nvidia GTX580 1.5gb - runs pretty toasty
and misc HDs for storage.


This things allows me to run at 2560x1600 on my apple cinema 30inch on pretty much full blast game settings. I can't wait to see how star wars is going to look and run.

Build 2 boxes (one for me and one for the wife). I bought that $80 16gb kit and put 8gb in each box. Talk about a money saver considering that the 4gb kits were $30 each.
