Case: Antec 1200

 

PSU: 1000W Raidmax

Input: Logitech G300 (ambidextrous usage) + Non-mechanical Keyboard :_(

Sound: Logitech G900 wireless surround headphones

Mobo: Gigabyte X58-UD3R
Proc: Intel i7-980X running @ 4.4Ghz + Corsair H100 watercooling.
Ram: 16GB
Video: EVGA GTX Titan
HDD:
Samsung 830 - 128GB - OS Win7 Pro x64
WD Raptor 10k RPM 300GB - Fraps Drive

Bunch of storage on my network.

 

Rebuilt my beast last night with it's shiny new GPU.  I'm a big fan of single GPU setups + as few bottlenecks as possible.

Suffice to say that I will not be upgrading much else this year.  I figure I'll spend a bunch on peripherals next year.  Thinking

of Cherry MX mechanical keyboard, foot pedal (Quenta raves about his and it makes sense to have one, it puts your feet

to good use via push to talk foot pedal), and maybe a proper mouse(lots of buttons, comfortable, and not software based

DPI like most Razer garbage).

Quenta uses a foot pedal for his push to talk?  That's actually kinda awesome but a little funny at the same time.

 

And yeah, my Alienware will probably last me quite a long time, which is why a possibility of a gaming desktop is either far off or will be non-existent.

Sure, why not.
 
I have an Alienware m18x.
 
Processor - i7 2820 QM
Graphics card - GeForce GTX 460M
18-inch monitor
Logitech Performance MX Mouse
Obviously laptop keyboard, which is a freakin lite bright keyboard (I'm sure most of you are aware of Alienware's LED keyboards)
 
I kinda strayed away from desktops when I got a laptop in college.  Granted, my system is a desktop replacement, but sometimes its just nice to be able to take it with me, even if it is a monstrosity.  I've had it for almost 2 years now, and its been great.  Will I make myself a gaming desktop one day?  Probably not, but never know.
 
If I had waited until September 2012, I could have gotten a discount on this system since I work for Dell, but my old Thinkpad was literally coming apart.


I extremely disliked my m11x and m15x. the m11x was built like shat. Hidges were replaced twice by alienware/dell. And when I pawned it off on craigslist they were going for a third time. Since my m11x sold on craigslist in about 4 hours, I managed go get my hands on an m15, bought on ebay, then sold it on craigslist for 150 more than bought. Win.. I used it for a day or two and honestly, the build quality wasn't there.

Just my opinion.

Cheers.

The smaller models are much more frail, I agree.  There's only so much that tiny torque screws can handle.  Alienware laptops are not light whatsoever, regardless of model.  I could sell mine probably, but right now, it's the bedroom tv.

Nice setup, Eyefinity for the win.  Love the Ergodex, I'll have to look into something similar next year.  Tried a Logitech G13 and fucking hated it, the Ergodex looks much much better for button placement etc.  I used to have a tiny keyboard(laptop esque keys) that I used but it died last year, been looking for a good keyboard for gaming for a long time.

 

As for ANet and API, pretty sure they're just letting the community pitch in on development rather than develop their own interface etc for raids/squads.

Also looking to upgrade to a 2560x1600 ips but can't find one I like. The new Dell u3014 was terrible, so much uneven ips glow screwing up dark scenes and it was the best option available at this time.

I've just got a laptop I play on. XD

The specs probably aren't very good at all compared to what other have got in this tread. I can run GW2 on medium settings though, which I'm happy with. :)

It's a Lenovo Z570.

Mine is pre-built HP Phoenix.

It's not that awesome, but my old computer graphic card was dead, so I had to find any available gaming PC at the nearest Fry's for my gaming addiction.

 

 

Next time, when my current computer is old enough, I'll have the custom-built one for my gaming need as I'm a graphic whore, love to run games in highest quality >___>;;;
