My Pc

Post by Kidd91 on Sun Jun 23, 2013 7:01 pm

I started with this G-75 and upgraded it to;

I7 3.4 ghz processor(I left this alone)
32 gigs of 1600 mhz ram
2 geforce gtx 660m video cards with 2 gigs of video memory each
2 10,000 rpm WD scorpio black hard drives 750 gigs each
1 250 gig(extenal) Intel solid state hard drive(just for E.T and a few other games) using a usb 3.0 interface
I started with windows 7 pro but installed win. 8 pro after giving into cyber pressure...lol(at first I hated win.8 but it grew on me) Win. 7 or 8 pro are required for any ram amount above 12 gigs
The initial price for the G-75 was 2700 dollars with my add ons it was 3500 dollars an alienware would have cost 6500 beans with just a 15.5 inch screen(Mine is a 17.5 inch)

I know you guys are saying "This is overkill for a 13 year old game" but I built this pc as a server so I can try out new maps and try modding on my own 

Sometime I'll host an admin scrim on it so you guys can try it out, I've had 12 players on it simultaneously with no lag probs.(some guys even as far away as Australia)

The only aspect of the system that is sub-par is the stock sound system(even though it  has it's own built in sub-woofer) I use my headphones most of the time anyway .

That's kind of contradictory..
