Current PC is from January 2011 with upgrades (new video card and more storage) over the years:
CPU: Intel 2600k
M/B: Asus P67EVO
RAM: DDR 16gb - 1600mhz
GPU: Asus 660 ti
PSU: RM 650w by Corsair
ODD: some Asus unit
HDD: WD - 1 TB black; 1 TB blue; 2 TB black
Case: Cooler master hafxb evo
Cooler: cooler master 212 evo
It gets the job done when working with databases however in new games the performance is quite slow!

I bought this case somewhere in the mid or late 2000s for an AthlonXP.
The main internal parts are from 2009 or 2010, when I built the first new PC since a K6-3 a decade earlier. This is still my main and most powerful PC.

Rosewill R5604-TBK - this is a rebrand. I once found the brand/model of a more well-adorned version of this case, but I lost that info.
Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 (AMD 790X chipset)
Phenom2 X2-555 (default 2 cores at 3.2GHz) running 3 cores @ 3.6GHz
CM Hyper-212 heatsink
6GB DDR3 RAM (2x 1GB Crucial bought new, and 2x 2GB unbranded mystery RAM that came from eBay)
eVGA GTX285 (eBay upgrade - the card I bought new was a PNY GTX260-216)
Intel Pro/1000 PT GbE card
Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS w/ working 15-pin joystick bracket - recent eBay addition
Delta 800W "DPS-800LB A" - eBay upgrade, was OEM from an HP system. Apparently even HP goes for color-less cables now. Oh well.

As you can tell I'm lazy about "cable management", and I keep the cover open all the time anyways.
IMG_6822_edit.jpg

The Delta PSU is thicker (vertically in the case) than standard, so at the time of that picture I couldn't get it to fit. I went through every case I own trying to find one that could fit this PSU, and none of them could. Then it turns out this Rosewill actually *can* fit it if I just removed a piece of plastic that was glued at the top. I did that and the PSU is properly installed now.

Hard drives:
1TB WD10EZEX (these have been cheap $50 hard drives for years)
4TB Toshiba MD04ACA400 (fast seek times and makes the old fashioned hard drive noises to match. Similar to a WD Black, but not as well known and a lot cheaper.)
These drives triple-boot WinXP32, XP64, and Linux Mint 17.2.
I almost always use XP64, which due to it's partial support for GPT, relies on both the 1TB and 4TB drives in order to boot and run.

2TB Seagate FireCuda SSHD (doesn't have fast mechanical seeks like the Toshiba, but it has an 8GB SSD cache)
This is the newest drive. I bought it to hold a new WinXP32 install, with the intention of focusing this machine on games. I wanted to simplify the setup, liberate the other 2 hard drives, and use a smaller PC as my main system. I never got to that point though and the 2TB hasn't been getting used. I will need to finish that project and make an image of the drive before end of 2018, when Steam breaks XP support entirely. The 4TB needs to go into my file server.

I did a GPU update for modern games, mostly Witcher 3, GTA V, some Crysis 3.

Added a reference radeon 290 Hawaii, clocked at 1180/1450 core/mem on HG10/H75 cooling. Stock speed is 947/1250 for reference.
Added an Audigy 2 for Windows XP SP3

This computer is almost retro at this point. 2021 it'll be full retro.


Current state of affairs:

Evga Titan SC 6gb classic
Gigabyte Z77x UD5H
Intel 2600k @ 4.3 with Corsair H90 and Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-2000 PWM
32Gb Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP
Seasonic X 650
Fractal Define S case
Noctua fans

Image

This computer is exciting because it's an incredible bridge from the past to present. Largely in part due to its full XP compatibility.


I was recently very fortunate to be able to upgrade to a 1080ti FTW3, so here it is

It looks very modern... can't even tell it houses a nearly 8 year old CPU.

I'm hoping I won't be tempted to upgrade until it becomes a 10 year old CPU. I would say currently I can't think of a reason to upgrade it. I know there will be people running these as their main CPU when it's a 20 year old CPU.

Since I've been on sandy bridge, I've paired it with a gtx 560ti, gtx 660, 7970ghz, r290, gtx titan and now the 1080ti. I really couldn't have anticipated this kind of CPU stability when I bought it.

Surely you must be using the updated, 64-bit version of NT3.5's File Manager that somebody from Microsoft is maintaining on Github, right? :)

My main rig is pushing five years old now, but it's still getting the job done:

CoolerMaster CM690 Case
Seasonic X-1250 PSU
ASUS Sabertooth Z97 MK1
Intel i7 4790K @ 4GHZ
Corsair H55 Hydro CPU Cooler
G.Skill Sniper DDR3 @ 32GB
EVGA GeForce GTX 970
Various SSD's (Crucial) totaling ~1.5TB
External HDD's (Seagate) totaling ~2TB

At some point I want to consolidate my storage and probably look into a new GPU. I'm usually a 1-2 years behind on the gaming cycle, but I'm starting to notice the bottleneck.
Or, you can help me follow a time-honored tradition of throwing computer hardware at a software problem. -Ross Scott

Welp, my RX 480 decided to show more signs of failure, and I didn’t read the early signs from Linux, no, I reinstalled Windows 10, and was greeted by the same GPU recovery events, and not even while overly stressing the card. Nothing happened the night before, while I was playing Destiny 2.

Oh well, back on my previous card, an Asus Strix GTX 960 4GB, at least until I can get a solution from RMAing my RX 480, which still has more than a year on its warranty. Funny, the first one I got also failed spectacularly, this is the one that took them a full month to find to replace it.
