What are your PC' rigs?

Right now I am running a 2013 27' iMac

I had a simliar iMac in the past but the GFX started crapping out on me...took it to apple care and paid for them to fix it since I didnt want to fuck around with an All in One computer.

Anyways; it took them about 2 weeks for them to figure out it was the GFX card, which i suspected in the first place. They placed that; took the comp back home....same issues.

Took it back to the Apple store they give me a brand new latest iMac for free.

Magic Trackpad
8GB memory upgrade
1TB hard drive
256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of flash storage
3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz) with 8MB L3 cache
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M graphics processor with 4GB of GDDR5 memory

In all seriousness I have been playing every recent game on 2550x1440 on ultra high settings with AA

I currently don't have a desktop. Just a laptop.

Lenovo 17"
6GB Ram
2.40GHz Intel i5
750 GB Hard Drive

Not really much of a gamer, so it does everything I ask out of it.

It has zero political or cultural value. It is reactionary in the worse sense: a gnarled wailing of a million broken losers joined in the comradery of hate and petty personal grievance.

I thought about casual gaming, downloaded steam a few weeks ago.

Still haven't actually downloaded any games. Anything that looks cool is a mod of another game that I don't own.

I've got some pc I got from goodwill and put a good video card in, for diablo 3 which sucked hard

i have two toshiba laptops, not terribly powerful but they run well and i am not afraid to replace parts on my own when necessary.

the newer one is as follows
intel i3 2.53GHz
15.4" 720p
4gb ram
500gb harddrive

my other laptop which is much older runs my home server and seeds my torrents. it runs two external (1tb & 2tb seagate) drives, which are basically full of music and movies as well as backups of all my pictures.

instead of having a tv i have a 1080p epson projector and a good set of altec speakers with a sub
fuck the monkeys

2-year old ASUS RoG G55 laptop with a few upgrades:

2.4 ghz i7 3910
16 gb DDR3 RAM
500 gb SSD
2 gb GTX660M Nvidia Card

15 sec cold boot-up time [pretty damn good for Win7]
Near instant load times

External drives for downloaded media networked/cloud/ftp to stream to TV/other devices

Pretty content with my setup.

2008 Dell Inspiron, w/ Windows Vista Ultimate. And it's on it's second hard-drive.

It's quirky from time to time, but yeah, more than getting the job done.

My newest toy, which was a gift, is a Nexus 7.
I'm enjoying that heartily.
Sooo useful.
