Looks great buddy!

And the girls are happy :cool:
Massive thanks @freeagent!! :D :D I did think I should keep them happy first and fore most to be honest.... They'll never use them to their full capabilities but I will get them crunching as much as I can, just because the hardware is there and won't be doing anything so, best do something with it I think :D
Nice builds @phill !!!
Thank you sir @HammerON !! For mine I think the move across was completely stupid and pointless, but I'm a hardware junkie and plus I guess, I can always crunch like hell with it... . I guess I'll have to do something else with it too make it a bit more used than just for crunching :D Still got to add in the other drives I have for the build but right now, its making sure its working and there's no flipping leaks :D :laugh:

Careful, if she reads this, she might actually leave. I've seen it happen.. The smallest things can break a woman's heart..
I've tried less subtle ways trust me, she's still here.... Keep saying to her if she's not happy, she knows where the door is!!

She's like a damn virus that just doesn't know when to quit!! :laugh:

times, when you had a nice graphics card with some green fans, are past and forgotten.
now it's about lots of money....a room with amazing displays, lights and furniture. where looking at thousands of euros. these builds cost as much as people's cars man.
all these builds make me feel poor.

Don't feel bad. Just buy what makes your computing experience enjoyable and don't worry about what anyone else does. Do what makes you happy and get the most out of it all!

Sometimes the best looking setups don't hardly cost a thing :) I'd try to get second hand desks and such because desks as an example, can be mega bucks for a decent one.. My orignal desks I bought for my PC room when I moved into my home, cost me £50.. for the pair of them, solid as a rock and I can stand on them without them breaking.... Love my desks my corner desk however sucks as its nowhere near as strong... That said, I still need to work on it because I really need to sort out the damn cables... One PC and cables easy to deal with, having 6 to 10 in a room gets a little much..

Thanks mate! I wouldn't feel poor if I were you, I guess I presented it the right way though :). The figurines for example; only 1 one has taken a bit of an investment aka the Perfect Grade Gundam! The rest were all claw machine winnings from my trip in Japan for my honeymoon. The desks are Alex P brand from IKEA very inexpensive since they are not real timber I think 200 AUD or so? The lights are from Amazon 20M Rolls that are about 50-70 aud each. The display cases altogether are about <500 AUD. Most of the money here went to the PC setup itself which I agree at the time of purchase could have bought us a low km used A to B run around.

I have my pc on the floor. I know it's really bad. (The air intakes are higher up, it doesn't get that much dust.)

Currently an HP 580-23w. Replaced memory with 16 GB of ddr4@2400CL16. Also added a 120 and 500 GB SATA SSD.

So far has been trucking along with a windows 10 install 5 years old. (Holding out till new pc.)

I got a dock for my Steam Deck and I currently have it set up as a desktop in place of my testing system.



Running Windows 10 LTSC 2021 off of a 256GB microSD. I'd like to dual boot off of the internal SSD at some point.

I've been messing around with it like this pretty much since I got the dock. I'm even considering trying to use it as my main PC for a bit.

After some various uses for this little 5” 800x480 that never really stuck, I found that you can get your MSI afterburner + RTSS on screen display to display on a different monitor. It’s a bit tricky to set up and use but well worth it imo. This is what I dreamed a 2nd monitor could do for a very long time. Primary monitor is a LG 42 C2 with an LG SN5Y soundbar beneath it

Was it easy to setup that way @sam_86314 ?? I'd no idea that the Steam Deck could do that! :eek:
The dock was plug and play. The monitor in the picture is stupid and doesn't have an audio out, so that's why there's a blue cable connected to the Deck's headphone out.

For Windows, I used Rufus to make a Windows to Go installation on the microSD. Then I just pop the card in and turn on the Deck while holding volume down. It brings up a boot menu and I just select the SD card as the boot option.

Driver support sucks, but other than that, Windows runs great on the Deck.

The topic here is "Your PC ATM", so I figure I'll give specs for my current build. Mind you I have little money, so it isn't the greatest.

Case: Cooler Master Elite 311 Plus [from an old-old build from 2011]
PSU: Cooler Master MWE 650 80+ Gold
Motherboard: ASUS Prime B350M-E
CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 3300X [Somehow I managed to find one in 2021]
GPU: Nvidia PNY XLR8 GTX 960 4GB
Storage: 1TB PNY CS1030 + 2TB Seagate Barracuda [HDD was once OS drive, but got the SSD to relegate the HDD to storage only]

Sidenote: I am somehow able to keep my CPU stable at 4.4GHz at 1.25v. Doesn't run hot in the slightest. Default motherboard settings cause it to run too hot.

Hey, if it works for you and get enjoyment out of it, that's cool! We're all friends here and anyone who talks down to people for what they have is swiftly shown the way out. So welcome, relax, and feel invited to share your PC adventuring! Booyah!

And to be fair, you've got a nice system!
