So....anyone wanna share their specs?

Intel i5-3570k oc'd 4.0GHz
GTX 650 1gb oc'd (I need a better card. This is a placeholder, and it's doing well so far.)
Asrock Z77 Mobo w/ CM Hyper 212 evo CPU cooler
Corsair Vengeance 8gb (2x4gb) DDR3
Corsair HX 850w PSU
CM HAF 922 Case

What should I go with for my next GPU? I was thinking either a GTX 770 or getting a last gen Radeon for cheap.

i have an amd phenom II 965 3.4Ghz
EVGA 460sc 1gb
8gb kingston hyper X blu ddr3 RAM 1333Mhz
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular PSU
1tb 7200rpm seagate barracuda and a 500gb same speed
Alienware aurora 7500 case
gpu wise though, i'd say go with a 770. but that's just me, i like the nice little addons like physx and such. i feel that nvidia has somewhat of a higher quality gpu and AMD provides the raw power for what you pay for but that's just me.

Not the best but it runs most games on High pretty well (:
The best I can do for having no job and Canadian prices.
I got my video card for ~$150, on sale from ~$200(cheapest I could find at the time)
while my boyfriend in the US got his for ~$100.

This was about 3-4 months ago.

That's a really nice setup. Your GPU is better than mine and your CPU is standard, but fast. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, once I get a job I'm planning on building my own when I have time.
I don't know a whole lot about computer parts, but at least I have friends who do (:

hey, the 32bit windows only registers up to 4gb of RAM, so by haveing 32 aren't you wasting some of its potential?

I installed 64 bit, so I have no idea why its displaying that i'm using 32 bit.

Nice. I guess I could have used Speccy.

Do you use your SSD as a boot drive?

Yeah I keep windows on there and the occasional game, everything else goes on the HDD

Awesome. I was thinking of getting an SSD for a boot drive, but I just stuck with a 7200rpm HDD. Work decent. I might get an SSD for games though. some of my games don't render very well running on this HDD.

Make sure you have a decent amount of money before doing that. A large SSD is pricey.

Yeah, I was thinking 128GB or larger. Around $150 or so. Seems fair to me. I only need one.

Just make sure to know exactly how many games you're going to have, it would suck to have to pay another $150 for a SSD when you could have upgraded to a larger one for $50 earlier.

Yeah. I was just thinking of having a few games on the SSD, and the rest on my HDD. Then I could switch them out if I want.

yeah, totally.
your system will boot a lot faster and you will find files within a matter of seconds
(if the file is on the ssd)
everyone has one these days.

right-click on my computer, select manage, select disk management. find hard drive, format it, and then partition it. At least thats how I remember doing mine.

I would upgrade your GPU too.
You have a good CPU, good RAM and good PSU.
The GTX 760 is better value than the GTX 770.
In my opinion, you should either buy GTX 760 or GTX 780, as the 770 just doesn't seem to be worth it's price tag.

Intel i5-3570k oc'd to 4.6GHz
GTX 480 SLI
Custom watercooling loop
G Skill Ripjaws 12GB (2x4+2x2)
Zalman 850W Modular Silver Certified PSU
NZXT Switch 810

You could always buy another 650 and run in SLI,
some games don't scale well with it though, so it depends. That's the cheapest solution I can think of though, buying a 650 would be less expensive than any newer card.

650's aren't capable of SLI though. That's the 650ti.

You're right! My mistake.
At any rate, with the newer cards, I'd say the 770. It's the same price as a 680 with more performance.

There you go. I know a 680 can run pretty much everything in max decently, so if you're getting a card which is known to be better, you'll be set. Considering it's from the latest generation too, you won't have to worry about it being obsolete for a while.

That was exactly my reasoning with getting the 770. It's actually cheaper than a 680 at the moment.
