Gaming Setup
« on: September 01, 2012, 03:03:02 AM »

Havent seen a thread about this, so I might as well make one.

How is your gaming setup? Massive show of power? Or a lone laptop in the corner?

(Pictures are not needed)

Here is my setup :)

500GB HDD
Nvidia Geforce 9600M 512mb

Sucky MacBook.

Intel i7 2630QM Quad Core 2.4ghz
Nvidia Geforce GT55m 3GB
256GB SSD for OS

It sounds as reasonable as the rest of quantum mechanics, so why not? 

I feel warm inside every time someone calls me "Your Lordship" or "My Lord"

might as well dump this here:

I've recently came across some money (summer job) and want to get a new computer. Budget is at around 900 give/take.

preemptive plan is this


are there anything I'm missing? Things above that are a rip-off? better things for about the same price?

Looking for any help anyone may give

thanks in advance
