Well that's impressive! I've read so much about Ryzen CPUs totally killing it but I haven't got my hands on one. Maybe you started this thread to make us feel jealous? :twisted:

I recently upgraded from a Core 2 Quad Q8400 to an i5-8400 with a GTX 1060. Can't complain about the performance. Although I still mostly use my laptop for programming and I (try to) work out with Blender and play a few games on the higher end rig.

I never bothered about a keyboard and mouse. I still use the keyboard that came with my Dad's IBM Pentium 4 in 2005. It works and I'm just used to it so much.

3GB or 6GB 1060? at 1080p i heard there wasn't much difference but i am guessing at 1440p its a fairly big difference. Is that keyboard PS2 or USB? I am guessing it is USB considering a lot of new motherboards don't seem to have PS2 ports

The 6GB variant. It was worth the extra ₹8000 ($120). The 3GB variant not only drops memory but also a few CUDA cores.

As for the keyboard, it’s USB. I’m not really sure but hadn’t USB pretty much taken over PS/2 by 2005?

This is sort of how it looks: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-41A5289-SK-8825-Computer-Keyboard/dp/B006U250KM except it’s got a few round buttons over the function keys, for shortcuts like “My Computer”, “Documents” etc. and control buttons for an MP3 player on the top left. They don’t work on a modern system though. Feels great for a 2005 keyboard.

I was wondering whether the keyboard was USB or PS2 because I have a keyboard from a Pentium 4 in 2002 - only 3 years earlier that is PS2

Impressive setup indeed...

Here're mines:

PROFESSIONAL SETUP (PROPERTY OF MY IT CONSULTING BUISNESS):
Model : Lenovo X1 Carbon 5th gen (14 inch monitor)
CPU : Intel Core i5 7500
Memory : 8 GiB DDR3
Storage : 500 GiB SSD
OS : Fedora Workstation 27

This setup is very satisfying for me as I'm always travelling for a misison, or a meeting, or some workshop with my clients...
8 GiB are always enough even when I'm working on large codebases
Graphics are not my priority, most of my work is done with vim / atom.

PERSONAL SETUP
Model : ASUS Zenbook UX305CA
CPU : Intel m3
Memoty : 4 GiB DDR3
Storage : 128 GiB SSD
OS : Fedora Workstation 27

A somewhat minimalistic setup, used for side-projects, blogging...

I use a quite old computer, fully satisfying me.
It has:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA something, xD don't remember, North bridge is P35, south bridge is ICH9
CPU: Core Quad Q6600 @2.4GHz
RAM: 8GB DDR2-800
Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT
HDD: 250 GB WD
SSD: 32GB Transcend
SSD: 60GB Patriot
Monitor: 19'' Samsung SyncMaster 940nw
Also I have 21'' Philips monitor with an HDMI port bought specially for work with arm/mips SBCs.
OSes: Windows XP SP3 (the same installation from the start in 2008), Windows XP x64, Windows 7 x64.

I also have a spare desktop with Core Duo E8400, and AsRock motheboard (G35/ICH7), 320GB and 160GB WD HDD, it lacks memory.
And a laptop from 2012 year, Core i3-2330M, 4GB DDR3, 640GB WD HDD, Windows 10.

Aaaand - iMac g5 :mrgreen: with some PPC CPU inside, forgot the model, it is from 2004 and has only 512MB of DDR, no PCIe, some AGP graphics card, quite lagging behind its PC counterparts from the same time, but, of course being more expensive, it's apple, everybody. I've bought it just for fun. was dreaming somewhen to play with the PPC architecture.

And of course, I have a small bunch of arm/mips SBCs as targets for my hobby. :) I guess I mentioned them here already. Shortly, it's Beagle Bone Black, Cubieboard 2, Pine64+ 2GB, CSA90 set top box with octacore rockchip rk3368 SoC, Banana Pi M2 Ultra and Mips Creator CI20.

_________________
future big goal: ANT - NT-like OS for mips, arm and x86.
current smaller goal: efify - UEFI for a couple of boards (mips and arm).

also:

Surface Book
HP mini PC

A few other odds and sods. That's not counting the tablets, old Amiga and other ancient stuff.

Hi,

Along with several work PC's (which are pretty much "thin clients", my main home PC is:

i7 7700K on an MSI Gaming M7 Z270
Dual GTX1080's in SLI
64GiB DDR4
4k LG 32" monitor
Dual M.2 512GiB SSD's (plus a 2GiB 7200RPM spinner!)
Windows 10 (with a few other OS's on VM's ready to go (hence the crazy amount of RAM)

No real need to OC at present as it runs everything at 4k in Ultra graphics at 60+FPS.

I built this one last year - an upgrade to a 10 year old computer that I wouldn't care to admit the specs of...

Cheers,
Adam

i7-8700K in Asus Prime Z370-A, 4.8 GHz all-core
EVGA GTX 1080 Ti
16 GB DDR4-3200
250 GB Samsung 850 EVO, striped 2x 1TB WD Red, smattering of other spinning rust
Windows 10 Pro
24" 1080p 144 Hz TN monitor, 24" 1080 60 Hz IPS monitor

I guess if you care about the peripherals my keyboard is some weird Gigabyte thing with MX Browns in it and my mouse is a Corsair M65 RGB Pro.

I'm one of those people who spends exactly way too much money on a PC every five to seven years and then does incremental upgrades as necessary. Next thing will probably be a big SSD once 1 TB ones hit the $300 mark.
