Bro Cave: Nick F

What’s up guys! My name is Nick, and you might have seen me around here lately. I guess I’m a new contributor on this KBMOD thing, and hopefully I can be for a long time. Anywho, I’m here to show you guys my PC gaming setup. It’s nothing fancy, but it does what I need it to do.
My current rig gets the job done, but I am planning on upgrading my GPU to a GTX 570 within the next 2 weeks. I also plan on upgrading my RAM in the near future. I can play most games on medium-ish settings relatively no problems, although my processors does leave a little something to be desired.

Overall I’m pretty happy with my computer, considering I haven’t put much money into it. One of the ways I saved myself a lot of money was using parts from other computers, or getting parts from friends and family. I spent no money on the displays, hard drive, case, or RAM.As of late, I’ve been playing Call of Duty 4, Darksiders, and CS:S on my rig.
Note: you will never see the inside of this, because the wiring is LOL.

In my next build, I will likely go full-out and into the high-end market. I would probably put this build in a lower end category. I’m happy with what I’ve got, but there is clearly some room for improvements.


My Current Specs
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 974 BE
Motherboard: MSI 870A-G54
GPU: EVGA GTS 450

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 6GB DDR3 1600
PSU: Diablotek 600W
Heatsink: Hyper 212+ 
HDD: Hitachi 750 GB @ 7200 RPM & External Seagate 500GB

Displays: Hanns-G 17″ (Left), Dell 21.5″ (Right)
Headset: Plantronics GameCom 377
Microphone: Blue Snowball
Case Fans: Rocketfish 80mm
I’ve got no clue what case I’m using besides the face that it’s an older Alienware. This is extremely important because it makes my computer run at least ten times faster, just because it’s Alienware.
Please don’t bash me too hard for having a semi-crappy setup. I love you.-Nick (@Mr_NFEN)

    >Look at this photograph
    Everytime I do it makes me laugh
    How did our eyes get so red
    And what the hell is on Joey's head

    And this is where I grew up
    I think the present owner fixed it up
    I never knew we'd ever went without
    The second floor is hard for sneaking out

    And this is where I went to school
    Most of the time had better things to do
    Criminal record says I broke in twice
    I must have done it half a dozen times

    I wonder if it's too late
    Should i go back and try to graduate
    Life's better now than it was back then
    If I was them I wouldn't let me in

    Oh, oh, oh
    Oh, god, I

    Every memory of looking out the back door
    I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.
    Every memory of walking out the front door
    I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.

    Remember the old arcade
    Blew every dollar that we ever made
    The cops hated us hangin' out
    They say somebody went and burned it down

    We used to listen to the radio
    And sing along with every song we know
    We said someday we'd find out how it feels
    To sing to more than just the steering wheel

    Kim's the first girl I kissed
    I was so nervous that I nearly missed
    She's had a couple of kids since then
    I haven't seen her since god knows when

    Oh, oh, oh
    Oh, god, I

    Every memory of looking out the back door
    I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.
    Every memory of walking out the front door
    I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.

    I miss that town
    I miss the faces
    You can't erase
    You can't replace it
    I miss it now
    I can't believe it
    So hard to stay
    Too hard to leave it

    If I could I relive those days
    I know the one thing that would never change

    Every memory of looking out the back door
    I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.
    Every memory of walking out the front door
    I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
    It's hard to say it, time to say it
    Goodbye, goodbye.

    Look at this photograph
    Everytime I do it makes me laugh
    Everytime I do it makes me…

    >FUCKING AMD PROCESSOR? I mean killing scott is bad and all but AMD!? HOW COULD YOU! YOU SWINE!!! Ok went to far, overrall nice setup, better than mine atm.

  10. Senones says:

    >Meh, it's an nice budget build.
    You're still missing one thing though; A set of 'Gunnar Optiks', they increase your FPS by atleast 120.

    >Would've been more impressive if the case had a pink zubaz feel. Also no lotion = bad temps.

Nick Fenton was forged in the fires of Mount Doom in 1876. At age 14 he was traded to a tribe in the tundra of Minnesota for fur pelts. He is only captivated by instagram photos and dinosaur facts. When it comes to video games, there are none more mediocre. See him on the internet with 10 million MySpace and 10 million YouTube.
