I'm curious to see what other people are using to run Vista. Many members give raw specs in their signatures, but thats not really enough, is it?

I'd like to see photographs of all the various rigs that people are using. But I think in order to minimise the impact on the servers, please make your posts with links to your galleries on ImageBucket or PhotoBucket.

To get started, here is my computer, which I've named Venus, after the goddess of beauty:

Yes MAtthews2010, those ar all HDDs you see in there :). You can't see the DVD Writer, just above that lot.

Your rig looks pretty cool. And you got an LCD display. Something that I do not...

5 of the HDDs are IDE (80, 80, 100, 120, 250), and the other 3 are SATA (100, 120, 250, setup as a JBOD array). As for why so many? I get to keep all 67,000 MP3s, Recorded TV shows, 95,000+ photos, Programming, Downloads, Work documents, etc. all in one place so that I don't need to waste time using my CDs and DVDs. Easier to find the stuff when I need it.

The 200GB IDE drive I use for storing temporary backup images of customer hard disks before I start any kind of work...

Looks good Mathews2010. Do you go to LANs alot? Those cool blue lights give it a little bit of character. Can't see much detail, though. Photos are a bit dark :(

Very nice, Roy69. I like your workbench. Nice and cosy in the corner without being too cramped.

What native res does your monitor have? Looks like it's a monster gaming monitor!

Yep it runs at 1680 x 1050 native. It is also fast, being able to runn all the games at full spec (so far). The workbench was quite expensive (more than the monitor), but I use the computer quite alot so I may as well spend the money on something I would benifit from.

My setup changes year to year but this is what I've been working with for the past 6 months. The Sony Bravia has been absolutely fantastic to work with. Media Center + OTA HD programming still puts a smile on my face.

Ok Guys, here I am.

I do not have anything fancy. It's just your standard OEM eMachines T5048-A with a 17" LCD monitor and added memory.

Hope your not disappointed. ;)

I have them all of the Tri-Cools on Medium. Fairly quiet except for the 8800 GT fan. You have to crank it up to at least 60% fan speed to accomodate 3d gaming. The Ntune app doesn't scale the fan control as it should, and EVGA hasn't put out the BIOS update for my model just yet.
