Built the first parts of it in 2007. I still have some HDD's the motherboard and 2Gigs of memory left from the original setup.
Upgraded my cpu in 2009 from E6600 to Q9550 and also 2 more gigs of DDR2
Somewhere in 2010 I also upgraded my Antec Sonata III to Antec P193
Upgraded GPU in 2010 from 8800GTS (320MB) to HD5870 the Geforce broke
Upgraded screen in 2011 from 22" Samsung SyncMaster to 24" Dell UltraSharp 2401M
It's running BF3 quite nicely and I don't see a reason to upgrade right now. I think I wait for the Ivy Bridges and upgrade the whole package then. :)
I'm in the process of collecting parts for a new machine. I'll probably save the CPU and video card for last since the Kepler GPU stuff is rumored to arrive around April. Hopefully the price on the GTX570's will come down enough to where I can put 2 of them in SLI. I also plan to spring for an Intel Core i7 3820 when the time comes.
I'm planning on dropping 16GB of RAM in there and I already have a 120GB SSD for my OS. If HDD prices fall enough any time soon I'll probably get 3 1TB drives and put them in a RAID5 config. Still sticking with my dual 24" monitors and I'm looking at the Asus Rampage IV motherboard, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be ready to drop the coin on that beast when the time comes.
Nothing overly special.
Two monitors, one is a 22" HD Samsung, other is a 17" Samsung.
Display: Radeon HD 6870
Processor: Quad Q8300 @ 2.5 Ghz (OC to 2.9 Ghz)
OS: Windows 7 64 bit.
Should run Diablo on all max settings, but that's not saying much really.
