I like putting the CPU on the wall, this way I have more space on my desk for other stuff.

Thanks. I built this computer 1 1/2 years ago and it's still fast.

age is not the problem , you can be a 3 year old if you are smart . isn't that right? :)

I was talking about the computer?

author
theVader75 (author)dog digger2011-04-21

yes you made the computer when you were 11 right? my 15 years old friends doesn't know what is a graphic card. Btw you can upgrade your graphic card , maybe ati radeon 5750 1gb ddr5

I might wait till the 6000 series come out or will get Nvidia with the 3D setup.

author
_Scratch_ (author)dog digger2011-04-27

Also, I only use nvidia, unless your gonna get a dual gpu card, nvidias are betterfor the price

author
dog digger (author)_Scratch_2011-04-27

My games aren't going to be that intense (dual GPU)
I probably will upgrade but I'm happy with the card I have now. It's the monitor I need upgrading! It's a tiny 15-17"! It's too small for my card to perform and I want to upgrade to a 24-27" monitor

author
dog digger (author)dog digger2012-02-22

Just got a full HD 24".

author

lucky I'm still stuck on a 15 inch crt. or is it 13 ether way.... well hey u bought the monitor around the same time i bought my computer nice. I just posted pics if you wanna see. https://www.instructables.com/id/My-gaming-rig/

how much did just all the computer componenets cost?


author
_Scratch_ (author)2011-04-27

Get a spire thermax eclipse 2 CPU cooler, I have one, works great. And its cheap.

author
dog digger (author)_Scratch_2011-04-27

I was planning to get a thermaltake V6gt but I'll try to get the cooler you were talking about if I can find it in aus

author
_Scratch_ (author)dog digger2011-04-28

You can get it off of Frozencpu.com, but i dont know if they ship to aus.
BTW, im also 13 =P

author
dog digger (author)_Scratch_2011-04-28

BTW, do you switch on your computer with a missile launcher unit?
Anyway you know a lot more about computers than most people and probably even me. Have you gotten into case modding? I've put a car neon light in the case and a cylon scanner on a front panel below the dvd drive

author
_Scratch_ (author)dog digger2011-04-29

I don't, and I havent got into case modding yet, but I have a red LED array that ill likely put in soon. If you were wondering at all, I have a NZXT guardian 921 RB case, its only a mid tower, but it works well for my build, system temp stays around 22*C constant. -
P.S.- The case has a temp monitor on the front, gives a rough estimate of a few sys. temps, about 5-10*C off though.

I've had to rebuild my complete system because I wanted to have better cable management. I've also installed UV LEDs and because the RAM sockets and the bracket for the cooler are UV reactive, They light up very brightly and I've got some tubing in there and Ive filled it with green UV reactive fluid and It looks AWESOME. I had to clean up my whole desk and it took me 3 days!

dog digger (author)_Scratch_2011-04-29

Nice case! It's a lot better than my thermaltake Xaser MX6!
Just a question, do you know much about electronics as in soldering, transistors, circuits etc? You would be good at it.

author
_Scratch_ (author)dog digger2011-04-30

I do, one of my hobbies actually

author
dog digger (author)_Scratch_2011-04-30

Cool. I think you can make a "missile launcher" to turn on your computer. It's a novelty but my switch on my computer got busted so I hooked up a car relay and now I have a missile launcher to turn on my PC.

One more thing,
that sound system pictured got blown up. the amplifier circuit just went up in smoke. Well thats LG sound for you.

toj cookies (author)2011-08-12

hey , i was wondering how much that computer alone cost to build

author
dog digger (author)toj cookies2011-09-10

$1500 in it's time

I love what you've done with limited space, it looks fantastic!

If thats the subwoofer on your desk, it should really be on the floor

author

I don't have enough cable for that but I know that it will sound better. this subwoofer produces a lot of mechanical noise and i wanted it to be on the floor so i wouldn't hear the mechanical noise. plus my optical cable only one meter long and it only just reaches

author

You can buy a 6' one for only 2.38 on Amazon. Would save a quite a bit of room on your desk also. http://www.amazon.com/Toslink-Digital-Optical-Audio-Cable/dp/B0002MQGOK/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1297800325&sr=8-3

Your impressive setup carries one big risk: the actual workspace is tiny, so when you're working at it a long time your elbows have no place to rest, and it is easy to catch RSI (mouse-arm). (I wrecked both my shoulders this way).

Suggestion: make a wide shelf, about 20cm- 8 " above (resting on) the desktop for the computer, the monitor, the sub, etc...

You'll have all the space of the desk freed up for your arms, the keyboard & mouse.
Even extra space for a note block or a book and a drink!

Making it the same style as the desk will be a bonus challenge!

Thanks for the advice :)
I seem to enough room because i don't crouch up with my arms on the desk. When i rarely do, i can be a problem for me because I have "bird wing arms".
I don't spend a lot of time on the computer because of homework, school etc.
I will try to make the desk because it will give me a place to do homework (instead of the dinner table) I love bonuses and challenges. I will try it when I get the wood.
