Share your computer specs here and tell is what the main uses of your computer are.

My main use is video (DaVinci Resolve 17) and a bit of gaming, lots of youtube watching and the usual website management and office stuff.

For me my current system is:
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX960
PSU: 1200W Thermaltake (running this computer and my NAS)
Mobo: Asus Z170I Pro Gaming LGA 1151 Mini ITX
CPU:  Intel Core i7 6700K
SSD: Samsung 950 Pro Series 512GB M.2 SSD (boot/system/office)
SSD2: Samsung 840Evo 500Gb (game library)
HDD: WD Blue 6TB
Case fan: Noctua 6 x 120mm fans (noctua Phanteks)
CPU Cooler: Noctua something or other.
OS: Windows 10 Home

I also have a couple of laptops in varying degrees of working or not, lying around running linux.

And the system I am building is:

GPU: PowerColor Radeon RX 5700 XT Red Dragon 8GB
PSU: Corsair SF600 Platinum 600W SFX
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
RAM: 32Gb (2x16GB) Ballistix Sport LT 3200 MHz
Case fan: Noctua A12x25-PWM 120mm Fan
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L9X65
OS: Windows 10

I reject your reality, and substitute my own.


Mine is an oldie, lol. Primarily used for web work and videos and gaming and anything else I can get outta it, lol.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 ghz quad core
Power supply is really not worth mentioning, I think 650 watts
8gb DDR2 dual channel ram
Nvidia Geforce gt 730 4gb ram
3 tb hard drive
2 smaller backup drives

HP Pavilion laptop (don't remember the exact model) with 15.6 inch Full HD display

Processors: AMD Ryzen 5 3500U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx
Memory: 8GiB of RAM (though for some reason Windows and Arch only see 6)
Graphics Processor: AMD Radeon™ Vega 8 Graphics
128GB SSD and 1TB HDD
Dual-boot Windows 10/Arch Linux
Windows is installed on the SSD while Arch is installed on the HDD

Also bought an SSD to replace the HDD (after noticing how fast the SSD that came with it is) but one of the screws for the mounting bracket for the HDD is stripped and I haven't gotten around to trying to get it out (this is a refurbished laptop so I guess someone else stripped the screw)

Only had it a month, to replace an old desktop that was taking 4 minutes to boot up.
Connected it to the monitor off the old pc to give me 2 screens as I mainly use it for trading forex and shares, so having a 2nd screen is quite handy - the adapter I  needed to connect it only cost £5, so it was a bit of a no-brainer really


Mine is a Dell Inspiron old but works, and who knows what's inside beside dusk bunnies.

I kick them out every so often.


You've reminded me that I need to do the same. LOL


I asked this same question at work and someone said they just built an editing PC which they dropped $8K (AUD) on. He's 18 years old...
