Hey gang!

Stumbled upon this neat forum and I decided I would maybe see if I couldn't fit in! I love computer hardware of all vintages and think this is a great place to congregate to speak with people who feel the same way. I would like to start off by sharing a bit about myself, and I will do this in the best way I know how. Show my computer and setup. I feel the best way to get to know what another computer enthusiast is is into, is through his/her hardware. So please allow me to post a few pictures here in hopes that I can strike up a good engaging conversation.

I didn't think I would have gotten that much interest from anyone. I don't game. At all. In fact it is not what I built the computer for. So the GTX 770 SLI would show its age. They are rather dated cards to be put in the system i know but they fit my needs. So those benchmarks wont be coming from me unfortunately. I can run the quake in DOSBox in time. If that is something you'd be interested in seeing. If theres anything CPU/RAM intensive, benchmark wise you'd like to see i can supply some results from AIDA/Cinebench/3Dmark. I can even supply something as simple as a Geekbench3 benchmark. Your choice. Thanks for looking.

Mentioned DOSBox+Quake is CPU intensive, for example. 😀 While video cards are better to test in modern games. Synthetic tests are on your decision.

I just don't get what the Audigy is doing there. Did it ever give you trouble to setup? I don't think they are even supported by Creative anymore.

@2Mourty It would be an H100i by Corsair.

@alexanrs It was actually an Audigy RX which is a fairly current card so the drivers were supported. Its since been changed to an Asus Xonar DX

Oh, yeah. I had forgotten that Creative "revived" the Audigy brand. Anyway, I've heard good things about the Xonar DX. Nice choice.

It isn't only the brand that got revived, it's actually an Audigy chip and a PCI to PCIe bridge on that card.
