Windows 7: Show Us Your Rig [2]

Windows 7 Media Center works just fine for me I always wanted to get a sub but I have an impact back surround speaker which has an additional 2 10 inch woofers and 2 1inch Euro soft dome tweeters behind my couch, Plenty of bass and volume with the Studio Monitor Polk 10B speakers which also have 10 inch woofers and 2 8 inch passive radiators and the tweeters. Digital sound with fiber optics through the Receiver. 600 plus cd's ripped to hard drive for easy access. Getting a little expensive with all the toys you can add to a AV Center like tape transport and decoders etc, check out Computer Audiophile | High-End Audiophile Music Servers for some systems that are out of this world.

Thanks for the link. I love the sound of my system but I can improve it greatly, a friend of mine is a recording studio sound engineer and said it sounds good but thats to normal people I aksed him what he meant and he said I could improve it 10 fold with abit of help from him, however a bit of help from him would mean having an extensive bank balance

Here's the run-down of the new toy and some pics, not the greatest since they're taken by my awesome cell phone lol but you can kinda get the idea. Wire management will be taken care of once I get my replacement B3 board

Case- Antec 300

CPU- Intel Core i7 2600K

CPU Cooler- Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus ( 2-120mm)

Motherboard- MSI P67A-GD65

Memory- Corsair XMS3 1600 8Gb kit (2x4Gb)@ 9-9-9-24 1.65v

Video- VisionTek HD6950 2Gb

Monitor- AOC 22'' @1920x1080

Sound- Onboard 5.1

DVD Drive- LG 22x GH22NS30 SATA

Power Supply- Thermaltake TR2 RX 750w

HD- WD Caviar Black 500Gb main, Seagate 250Gb storage




Yeah, and I thought the 3870x2 was big, this 6950 has 1/8" clearance from the HD bay.

You correct cell phones suck as cameras and many are margin as phones these days. lol But we get the idea, a rather tight fit with the GPU and case.

Very nice build, but I wonder why you went with the Antec 300 case. I have 3 of them at work and they are great as a budget case...but this doesn't look like a budget build to me.

It looked like it had a lot more room in the store lol. It's got a lot better layout over my old case and I have somewhat of a small area so I needed something that wasn't too big but big enough to still keep air moving. So far it's done just that thanks for the pic edit Brink, wasn't paying much attention when I posted it lol

Is the B3 the replacement for the Sandy Bridge issue . I almost built a new $2000.00 system with the new processor and the new P67 chipset but said to myself do I need it over my E8400 or even the E6750 C2D and decided to wait for the next great leap in computing history and by then the next version of Windows will be out and I will have a reason to build a new system. I have even considered going the Laptop route but one i would have to have would run close to probably $4-5 grand, but get rid of 2 desktops. Nice setup from all members of the Forums by the way.

Yes the B3's are the fixed motherboards for Sandy Bridge. Some places have been getting limited quantities for about a week now and should be out fully by April I believe.

I am still waiting on newegg to let me know when they will send me a new one. Shouldn't be too much longer, they are sorting it by purchase price.
