Dude... you pimped that baby out!!!
Although this is currently a very good model, I would recommend changing your graphics card every 2 years (normal gamer) to 1.5 years (hardcore gamer)... because 1.5 GB is quite a decent amount for today... but maybe in 2 years you might need 3 GB.
BTW, why didn't you choose Intel graphics? I heard those are better. You might want to change to that in some time

My pc specs built 9 months ago

cpu intel 2600k

m/b gigabyte z68 ud7 b3

water cooled corsair h70

Corsair force 3 120gb sata 3 ssd this is used as a primary boot disk loaded all application and windows on it

samsung spinpoint 1 tb sata 2

western digital 1 tb caviar black sata 3

razer ultimate elite mechanical keyboard

pioneer sata dvd writer

corsair obsidian 650d case

corsair ax 850 power supply

corsair xms ddr3 1600mhz 8 gb ram

windows 7 64 bit professional retail

corsair speakers and sub with wired remote sp2500

monitor is a 23 inch ipl asus p238q

graphic card is a ati 6990 dual card.

My windows expereince is 7.6, everything elses is 7.9, the lowest score was the cpu and memory, i havent overclocked it all, the reason for fitting a water cooled cooler was to do with the supplied intel fan being too hot and noisy and its also neater and built the pc all by myself!

play a variety of games, ridge racer unbounded, mass effect 3, crysis 3.

The only problem i have is that the joypad isnt working, was a saitek rumble pad, sometimes when plugging in windows doesnt recognise it, tried the installing the software driver and also uninistalling it, still doesnt work, so any1 recommend a joypad with rumble

PC Spec - AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 4Ghz, Asus Crosshair V Mobo, 8Gb Corsair Vengeance DDR3, 64Gb Crucial SSD, 500Gb Samsung Spinpoint F1, ATi Radeon 6950 2Gb, Asus D2X, Corsair H80 Water Cooling Loop.

I can't make up my mind what to do at the mo. I upgraded my motherboard to the Crosshair V last November with the intention of getting an FX chip when they came out but since the underwhelming launch I'm harbouring thoughts of switching to Intel (for the first time since my first PC 15yrs ago!).

The 2nd generation FX chips should be emerging withing the next 3-4 months, just in time for my Open University grant, so i'll probably make my decision then.

(check out my system thread, linked below for more info/pic)

Ok i will wait for the coments concerning Alienware but at the time with all the discounts and corperation discounts i had at the time the tower system cost me £520 inc delivery from £620 which worked out just as cheap for me to build my first PC after a 6 year break from gaming PC's

Alienware X51 case

Intel i3 2120 CPU ( 3.30mhz X 2 )

Memory 6gb DDR3 PC-10700 (667mhz)

Mobo is a Modded Alienware motherboard

240watt Alienware PSU

Nvidia GeForce GTX640 GPU

1TB 7200rpm Hard Drive

Windows 8.1

Dell U2212HM Display

Razer DeathAdder Mouse

Not to many upgrades i can do, i may change to a matching 8gb ram and ssd in the new year, if i upgrade GPU to GTX 680 then i have to upgrade PSU costing £110 so not sure if to hold on and start a new build later next year

I'm essentially using the PC of my boyfriend, that likes to game more diverse types of games than I. He's using a MSI AG270 QE. It is an all in one gaming pc with Nvidia GTX980 (8GBram) a quadcore i7 intel processor, 16GB of DDR3 rams and 27inch display. So there is enough to play with.

I took delivery in December 2020 of an AMD Ryzen 5 3600, 32 GiG of DDR4 1TB M2 solid state and an Nvidia 3070 TUF gaming card (8GiG of Ram). I got in before the prices went crazy and you could get Nvidia 3000 cards if they were in a system.
