      Let's see your battlestations!
      Here's mine. Pic is old, the setup was a bit messy, but I'm too lazy to take a new pic :D

      Specs:
      -Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0
      -AMD FX 6300 @ 4.2ghz cooled by Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO
      -MSI Radeon RX 470 Gaming X 4GB overclocked at 1390/2050
      -8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 2133mhz
      -SSD Samsung 840 EVO 120Gb + HDD WD Blue 1TB, 64mb, 7200 RPM
      -Seasonic M12II 520W
      -Zalman Z11+ High Performance
      -LG Flatron W2363V
      -Logitech Z200 speakers, Superlux HD681 EVO Headphones, Zalman ZM-Mic1 Microphone, R.A.T. 7 Contagion mouse


      Here's a benchmark for you to compare:

      EDIT: New score. After some tweaking of my CPU OC settings, I now seem to have the fastest FX6300 + RX470 PC in the world. Both are in the 100th percentile, I doubt anyone else achieved this for both components. My GPU score seems to be down for some reason, not sure why, but I don't mind.

      CPU: Intel i7 4770
      GPU: Nvidia GTX 650Ti 1Gb (Might be good to include manufacturer name, like ASUS, MSI, EVGA, Zotac, Palit...)
      RAM: 16Gb DDR3 @ 1600 mhz (Got brand name and model?)
      Storage: Corsair Force LS 240Gb + Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C 1Tb 7200RPM 32Mb cache
      PSU: (Fill this in if you know what Brand and model power supply you have, also wattage)
      Case:
      Monitor: 2 x (Whatever monitor you have)
      Peripherals: (Your speakers, mouse, keyboard, headset... everything you proudly show on your desk)
      Here, I fixed some of your info, but it still requires you to fill something in. It's up to you though, whether you want to fill missing parts or not. Info like Uptime (how long has your PC been on), Run Date and Duration (when you benchmarked and how long it lasted) and stuff like that isn't really part of your specs.

      Also, your PC is a bit unbalanced, depending on what you do, you might want to get a more powerful GPU if you like playing games. The CPU is top of the line, I doubt anyone needs better than 4770, but you overspent on Motherboard (total overkill if your CPU isn't unlocked K model, as you can't overclock). You might also want to consider overclocking your RAM, it gives you a decent boost, especially if you know how to tighten the timings.

      You can see I completely based my PC on the ability to play games, and I am yet to find a game I can't run properly. Gaming requires a strong GPU, CPU is important, but only up to a point not to bottleneck your GPU. In your case, your CPU is powerful enough you can throw any GPU in there and have fun in games. I would recommend a GTX 1070 for your build, it would run games nicely even on our dual monitor setup, at decent frames.

      I edited my post and tried to complete the specs as much as I could. :)
      The NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1070 is way too expensive. :S How would I even know whether it fits inside my PC? The "Alpenföhn" fan, is humongous and takes up so much space. When I bought this PC I had a budget that I did not want to exceed and I got most parts rather cheap, as they were already used or just old (those badass headphones for reference :D).

      Thanks for taking your time and explaining my setup to me. You saved me a ton of time.

      Yes, 1070 is very pricey. Another good buy would be Radeon RX 480, if you find it from a good brand, Sapphire RX 480 Nitro OC+ is a good model, and so is XFX RX480 GTR. I'd go for XFX, heard many good things about cooling of that card.

      Also, where you wrote Nvidia is a manufacturer, it works a bit different that that lol. Nvidia makes the reference card, and then supplies the chip itself to other manufacturers, but manufacturers do the work of designing the PCB, fan/heatsinks... I understand the confusion though, and it's really hard to find the manufacturer of your card without opening your case.But yeah, just saying it's a GTX 650ti isn't a mistake.

      EDIT: That Aerocool case should easily fit large cards like 1070, and fan shouldn't be an issue if installed properly. The fan should go front to back, not down to PCI slots. And it still wouldn't matter. If the fan doesn't touch the top part of your GTX 650Ti, it wouldn't touch the top of the GTX 1070 either, as 1070 would only go further back towards the front part of the case, and you should have space there.

      That's a beastly rig for CoD4, I had HD 7870 and it can run pretty much anything still, but it struggles with higher settings. Also, that GPU had it's 5th birthday a month ago as well :D

      I tried with a 40" TV myself, all it caused is my eyes to feel like they are bleeding. Never again. I'm faithful to my 24" monitor for now on, I would go to 27" at most for 16:9, or 34" if 21:9 (same height monitor, only 21:9 is a lot wider).

      I want those speakers so much, but my current room arrangement doesn't really allow me to fully utilise 5.1 system, I'd have nowhere to put the back speakers.

      Oi, I forgot that thread was yours. Sorry.

      It was actually the inspiration for this thread.
