My Battlestation

Sadly that is not the look of my case. If there is one thing I am not happy about it is my case. I have spent way too much on everything else I just couldn't bring myself to spend it on the case. So what is this post about? Well a couple weeks ago when I posted the gear I used I stated I would post the specs of my computer the next week. Then came my rant about RoS beta and I didn't get the chance to post it. Now comes today. Before I post them I just want to say gaming on a PC with a well built one makes all the difference so if you have the extra funds it truly does make a difference. That is not to say spend everything you have to do so, but it does mean saving up for something slightly better is always worth it.

CPU: Intel Core i7-2700k 3.5GHz (Overclocked to 4.2GHz)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen 3
Memory: G.Skill RipjawsX 16GB (4 x 4GB)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
Storage: Asus ROG RAIDR 240G SSD
Video Card: Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 4GB
Sound Card: Asus Xonar Essence STX
Power Supply: Seasonic X850 Gold
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit)

So that's what I run. Cost wise I actually don't want to think about it, but in the end it is worth it as I can pretty much do anything I want PC gaming wise. Really not having to worry if your PC is "good" enough to run certain games is always a plus. Years ago that was something which always was depressing to me so when I could I made it a point for that to never be an issue.


  1. For a second I thought you had that case and I was jealous. Although I am pretty jealous of your setup seems pretty sweet although isn't the HD space a little overdoing it?

  2. woah 690? Holy crap. How much did that set you back?

  3. That is a pretty sweet computer man. I am running an Asus I bought recently with a 760 but I can't even imagine how awesome things must play on the 690. What monitor do you run? I have been looking into getting a new one any suggestions?
