Bro Cave: @BiP0LAR_B3AR
Hi, @BiP0LAR_B3AR or Chris here with my submission to the bro caves. I’m a little older than most of youguys probably, I’m 36 years old. I got back into gaming about the time CoD 4was getting set to come out.
I played mostly on the console until earlier this year after I had someone build my son, who is 11 yrs old, a gaming PC. His PC was built on a pretty low budget, so I started to upgrade it and caught the bug. Couldn’t believe how much better Battlefield BC2 looked and played, So of course I had to build a PC for myself. Pretty much the only thing keeping me from choke slamming my Xbox is Gears of War 3.
I’m currently playing the BF3 Beta, BFBC2, CoD, TF2 and delving into some WoW. There are a couple of things I would have done differently, but this was my first build, this is what I came up with.
My PC Specs:
Case: AZZA Spartan Mid Tower Gaming Case
Mobo: MSI P67A-GD65 B3
CPU: Core i5 2500k OC’d to 4.2 Ghz
GPU: 2- MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OCin SLI.
PSU: Corsair TX850w power supply
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
CPU COOLER: Corsair H50 High Performance CPU Cooler w/ two 120mm fans in push/pull
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB
Optical Drive: Lite-On CD/DVD Writer
Monitors: 27″ Viewsonic VX2739WM 20″ Dell monitor
Editor’s note: As one of the elder statesmen around here, glad to see you’re still having fun!
