Title: Post your PC 2016 Edition
Post by: Dandel on October 17, 2016, 05:40:02 PM
I figured that it would not hurt to see what people are using for their computers at the end of 2016... Generally speaking it will help others know what to look for when trying to locate new computer parts, and find out what is currently trending. That said I will start with my system.

Nope.

Mine's still the same 2011 laptop (sorta, actually its twin now) that I've been using for five years. :p

That's an interesting idea. Here's my gaming PC:


I also have a couple SSDs in there from a previous build along with some mechanical HDDs for extra storage, but it's not necessary with my backup NAS. I may take the extra drives out for another build someday, but for now they're there. I also have a Blu-ray burner from a previous build in there too, but I only use it to watch movies when the TV is tied up.

That's an interesting idea. Here's my gaming PC:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7 6700K
  • CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler (discontinued and replaced by the NH-D15, but still an awesome cooler)
  • Motherboard: Asus Z170-Deluxe
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 - PC2666 - 4 8GB DIMMs
  • Main SSD: Samsung 950 PRO 512 GB Internal SSD ‑ M.2
  • Power Supply: LEPA G Series G1200-MA (way bigger than I need, but I used to have it in a previous build with an SLi setup and a lot of drives, but it's still good so I'm still using it)
  • Video Card: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition
  • Monitor: AOC g2460Pg (not 4K; I'm waiting on single card solutions to come out that can drive 4k at well over 60 FPS and prices to come down before I get a 4K monitor, so I'm future proofing myself for a little while at least)
  • Case: NZXT Phantom Red (an old case I had from a previous build, but I still like Thermaltake cases the best)

I also have a couple SSDs in there from a previous build along with some mechanical HDDs for extra storage, but it's not necessary with my backup NAS. I may take the extra drives out for another build someday, but for now they're there. I also have a Blu-ray burner from a previous build in there too, but I only use it to watch movies when the TV is tied up.

Thanks for reminding me about the need to mention storage recommendations. That said, there is a few options that need to be looked at when you decide...

That about sums it up. I would add this about storage.
