  • CPU: i7-4790k
  • GPU: 2x EVGA GeForce GTX970
  • RAM: 4x G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 4GB
  • CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydra Series H100i
  • Power Supply: EVGA Supernova 1300 G2 80+ Gold
  • Boot SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
  • Main SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
  • Storage HD: 3x WD Blue 1TB
  • Case: Corsair Graphite Series 780T
  • DVD: LG Black Blu-ray burner
  • Monitor: Samsung U28E590D 28-inch

It's probably a bit overkill for most of what I do, but I like it and have no issues with anything I want to accomplish. I've also done some video editing / rendering and that seemed to process pretty quickly compared to how it used to go on my old PC.

EDIT: Also, I just noticed you are on Moon Guard. Hello fellow RP'er! I mainly play over on WrA.
Thanks for the info! I don't RP like I would like to. I came over due to RL friends. I do avoid Goldshire on Moon Guard for obvious reasons.

I'm curious about the two SSD's. One for the OS, one for apps and games? I'm guessing the 3x 1tb drives are for longer term storage or really big files?
