Now most newer games i have to run at like half their max settings or i get problems like extreme slowdown choppy picture and torn graphics and in some cases my computer will crash and reboot itself. Woe is me :P i hope i can get one of the kits i mentioned before but if i cant i hope to at least add another gig of ram so it'll run smoother on Campions at least.

And i thought i had a nice pc, until i read this thread...now i really need to start earning more money if those rigs are getting more standard :)
8 Gigs of Kingston ram
ATI 4850 grafics
500gb harddisk, and a 150gb 10000rpm system disk
I can't belive it's not butter.

I would just like to point out its an AM2+/AM3 motherboard - and nice rig!
My slightly outdated "Jimathy" (or so i called him) is:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 currently running at the standerd clock of 2.5Ghz but i often run it at 3Ghz+ (Running on a P45 chip with 8-Pin (2x4) Connector so it is easily overclockable).
Cooling: Corsair H50
RAM: 4GB DDR2 Single Channel RAM at 800MHz
Graphics Card: Palit nVidia GTS250 1Gb/1024Mb - E-Green edition due to the fact that at the time my power supply had no 6-Pin connectors and only 2 Molex connectors.
Standard clock 675/900/1458 however i usually run it at 787/1066/1721 boosting Windows rating of both 3D Performance and Windows Aero Performance to 7.0 with it's 68.2Gb/s Transfer Rate and 50.4 GTexel/s Texture Fillrate - which i aknowledge is way lower than the standerd edition of the model and other graphics cards.
Hard Drives: Western Digital 500GB Caviar Blue 16Mb Cache and 7200RPM SATA drive and external 160Gb and a 250Gb Buffalo MiniStations running at 5400RPM through a 2.0 USB port which i use to backup files from home, from school and for friends when i need to reinstall their PCs
Motherboard: Asus P5Q Pro Turbo
PSU: OCZ Z-Series 650W
Case: Antec VSK 2000 Case
Monitor: Acer AL1717 (which im saving up and looking forward to replacing with an Acer GD245HQ 24" 120Hz 3D Compatible) and i have a 32' AcousticSolutions TV that supports 1080p and 1080i.
Mouse and Keyboard: Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 with the BlueTrack mouse - which does the trick when i switch between displays and makes multi-tasking easier.
Sound/Audio: Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound speakers (70 RMS and 140 Peak Power) which blast out amazing music with deep base and awesome gameing sound when positioned properly thats blasts out through my onboard 8 Channel Sound card.
Internet: UK TalkTalk 24Mb with Unlimited Download usage - actual received speed is at the bottom on my signature
Accessories: A mug warmer which damn helps throughout the day and night keeping my coffee warm when gaming
Pictures: I have not taken any since i dont have no flashing neon lights due to the fact that they generate light which prevents me from sleeping at night and generate a bit of heat which i dont really need either. However upon request i can take a pic of the whole set and the one of the PC from the inside.

I built this rig about a month and a half ago now, everything purchased from NewEgg (including monitor) for ~$1200, and I have to say that I am extremely impressed w/ the performance I am getting. I am able to run everything I own maxed out @ 1920x1080 (that's full 1080p ;) ), I admit that I haven't tried Crysis yet, but it handles Far Cry 2, and Splinter Cell: Conviction w/o a stutter. In the next couple months I'd like to finish the machine off w/ another 4GB of RAM, and maybe a 2nd GPU...I just hope I am able to find another one of my GPU's. ASUS only made a limited number of em as (they claim) they only took the top 15% of their boards to make this version of the 5850, so they are kind of hard to come by. NewEgg doesn't have anymore, and the only place(s) I have been able to find em are small, local retailers it seems.
But honestly, I am very happy w/ the performance of this machine, and the ever important bang-for-buck ratio, so if I can't get another GPU for crossfire, I'd still be happy w/ it.

GTX 275 OC (i use eVGA's percision tuning software you can make adjustments on the fly with it it is really handy. I also noticed using percision taht no matter what game i am playing my BFG GTX 275 fan speed stays at 40% even when temps get in excess of 85c percision has a fan speed slider on it so you can adjust these things on the fly as well its a really handy program.

It's always funny to see MMO players show off their high-end system... And for what..? Not one MMO will use that much power these systems give, and not many stand-alone games will either....
IMO this threat is only a "hey look at my money" thread...
For those curious about my system... It's nothing much, but it does get the job done for my needs:

actually mmos can strain even a very high end system.LotRO with max settings dx10 very high resolutions can be very demanding depending on the zone and amount of people on screen.Age of conan is very demanding too with dx10.Esp the new zones.Even WoW on max settings and high res can slow down in certain areas.

On a side note. Most people will decide the speed of a system based on its case. Like if you put a P4 in a $200 case, people would think its a $1500 system.
On MMOs being laggy, they mostly suffer problems from adopting last-gen tech. As we all know MMOs are CPU and Memory intensive. Yet most mmos are on SM2.0 and 32-bit app. This means they are typically restricted to 1 core and 2GB of memory. Considering mmos must cater to lower specs or older tech, the adoption rate into SM5.0 and 64-bit apps will lag behind flagship PC games.

@ tehjackal That is a hella nice set-up you got there mate, and a nice system too. I know you paid out the arse for that sweet rig, especially buying from ibuypower, they build some absolutely beautiful systems, but charge an arm and a leg. I wish I could afford a system like that...one day I hope, that said I still wouldn't buy from a builder, as I enjoy building them myself and being able to throw that kind of money at a machine to build myself would be a dream.
Here's my system specs, don't have any current pics of how everything is set up, but it's nothing extroadinary really...
