Windows 7 Home 64-bit
7/10

Nice cost-effective mid-range build. Can probably handle almost anything thrown at it.

My build:

Thermaltake Chaser MK-I
Intel Core i7 3770K at stock clock settings
Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler
ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 Motherboard
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600MHz
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 580 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5
Corsair Force Series GT 120GB SATA III SSD
LITE-ON 24X DVD Burner
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX750 80 Plus Gold Modular PSU
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I will probably get a Western Digital 600GB 10K RPM Velociraptor HDD or a 1TB 64MB cache 6.0 GB/s as a data hard drive.

I'll give it a 9/10, cpu will last you a while, and even though your gpu is outclassed by new cards and SLI/CrossfireX it still is beefy enough for almost all practical applications. Plenty of RAM too.

My rig:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (dual core@2ghz)
2GB DDR 400 SDRAM
ATi HD 4850 512MB
300GB HDD@5400 RPM

at least it plays Crysis 2 and Deus Ex: HR

I just don't like your new case, just personal specifications, but other than that 9.5/10. Didn't want to wait for a 680 eh?

5/10 for today's standards. Although you have decent specs for old hardware

Recently upgraded from an old E6750 setup, quite a big improvement. No optical drive, I use digital distribution only. USB for windows installs. Besides, I've a file server with a burner in it if I ever need it. I'm planning on seeing how prices are come Christmas to replace the HD6850 with a 7950 or 670. Whichever ends up being the most cost effective.

Heh, just updated my FX build, was too lazy to move my X9650 rig, so the new card ended up with the FX (I'd rated a few rigs before this).

AMD FX4100@4.2ghz
CM Hyper 412 Slim
Asus M5A97 EVO
4x 4GB RipJawsX 2133mhz
MSI GTX670 2GB OC Ed
GB GTX560OC Ti (PhysX)
Creative X-Fi ExtremeMusic
150GB WD Raptor (OS)
2TB WDC Black
500GB WDC Blue
LG Bluray RW + LG DVD RW
Seasonic SS-850AT
64bit Win7 Pro SP1
Thermaltake Mozart TX

Yeah, I know I'm going to get trashed for sticking the GTX670 into this build.....give it to me! I can take it!!!

8.5 being generous and it has to be better than the rig I gave a 7.5 with the Intel i5 3570 based on graphics cards..

I've installed my GTX560OC Ti, but the driver's optimized for the GTX670, so optimized that the GTX560 isn't supported.....neither does the new FW301.34 that I've just downloaded. I was in a similar situation back when I'd first gotten the GTX560 Ti. Driver was for the GTX560, it didn't recognize the GTX460 I'd also installed as PhysX card.
