Hey, it'll easily get you onto the internet, and that's all that matters!
My good machine crapped out with a disk drive crash in February and I haven't been able to afford to fix or replace. Now on a piece of shit with only 2gig ram that can't be expanded.
AMD Athlon II X4 630 @ 2.8GHz
16GB DDR3 PC10600 RAM
nVidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti
700GB SATA hard drive
The RAM and video card are upgrades. I also put a much better PSU in it since what it came with was too anemic to run the GeForce card.
The system is 4 years old and in a while I'll probably a new motherboard and CPU in it and carry on. No need to toss out the rest.
How will my randomly generated serial number from a Hackintosh reveal anything? And even if, it will only be the specs.
One still does need more to attack my computer directly, there are three firewalls (router, AEBS, computer) in place. Good luck finding all my slow-more porn.
Anyway, here are my dick measurements:
Gigabyte Z77-UD-3H (cheap one, but could not find the UP5-TH anymore and this one was available)
Asus GTX670 DirectCU GPU
32GB of RAM Corsair Vengeance
250 GB Samsung 840 SSD for OS and applications
Nine 3 TB Seagate Barracuda HDDs
Three 2 TB Seagate Barracuda HDDs
Four 1.5 TB Seagate Barracuda HDDs
Eight or so 1 TB WD HDDs
Two keyboards and two mice
Two U2412M displays
and some other stuff
Do you have all those drives hooked up to the same computer?!
More than two years since my original post and I'm still running the same computer that I got in 2008. I've upgraded the RAM and my original video card died on me so I had to get a replacement.
Intel Dual Core E8400 @ 3GHZ
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
1.25TB (250GB + 1TB) HDDs
4GB DDR2 RAM
The SSD and four 3 TB and one 2 TB HDD are inside the case.
Four 3 TB HDDs are in one enclosure, some other HDDs are in another enclosure, changing around.
The rest are going into eSATA docks and a dual SATA USB dock and are used for back ups.
Those enclosures and docks are connected to the main computer, sometimes I use my MacBook Pro though and one eSATA dock or one of the enclosures when on the move.
Another on of my oldies.
IBM Netfinity 1000/3000 series
Of course its totally non standard and being an old IBM design quite indestructible also, a recalcitrant evil piece of machinery.
Its a Pentium III 650 Mhz
128Mb ECC RAM can only be upgraded with IBM dimms and trust me, I tried to fit any combination of about 50 other dimms, it just won't boot, it will just beep at me in a demanding tone to remove the inferior other brand dimms.
4.5 Gb Quantum Viking Ultra Wide SCSI drive which is connected to an Adaptec card Ultra Wide SCSI adaptor.
Strangely the CD ROM drive is IDE
On board S3 graphics adaptor
This thing either runs Win2K or Xubuntu 6.06 and nothing else, it had murdered any other Linux distro I tried..
The thing is pure evil, that is why I keep it around...
Same video card (well, some OC version of it. I know, I know...)
Same display (calibrated with a Spyder because I do some modeling and I want to see the photos in the correct colors)
Same SSD (+ an older Vertex2)
but I'm still running a 2600K on an ASRock Fatal1ty board (which does look a bit too "wannabe-badass" with the Ripjaw RAM in it. Fatal1ty and Ripjaw, who names this shit? Is this really all marketed to male 14-year-olds (... or 30-year-olds)? Damn nerds.
Still don't feel the need to upgrade the CPU since it's never really the bottleneck and it's easy enough to overclock the K-versions.
Did you get one for that purpose?
I don't even bother anymore even though my CPU cooler could easily handle some overclocking. I switched back to air cooling last year because I figured that the water-cooling was fun to build but ultimately just flashy nonsense that I don't really need.
I've got 2 SSDs and a Samsung HD103SJ HDD in the case but most of my stuff is stored on the NAS (Synology DS-Somethingoranother) on WD Red HDDs (which apparently are good for that purpose).
Mechanical keyboard (Corsair Vengeance K70 (Vengeance!!! )) and one of the few gaming mice that don't suck and look flashy.
Shit... am I even allowed to participate in this thread?
Damn, you must have a hell of a lot of "slow-more porn" to need all that HDD space!
