hopefully a better topic, but computer specs?

Posted 14 December 2011 - 09:22 PM

Well I'm hoping that this will actually be a worthwile and good thread, and here's definately hoping its not another duplicate thread, because I'm using my phone, so I can't exactly do a search...

But what are your computers specs that you use for programming and or normal use??
Ill post my specs tomorrow, but I'm definately curious...
Possible specs could include the obvious ones, but others like hdd count and or size, monitors, videocard(s) and or motherboard/type and anything else you might want to throw into the post...

was told that three well thought out replies are worth ten thousand oddball topics, and this is the best I have thought up that do indeed interest me... so here's hoping its deemed worthwile by everyone, and not something to beget me more hastling...

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

My first computer (and my current one) is a laptop, which the screen is now broken and it practically a very thing desktop computer. 250GB hard drive, 3gb ram, running Fedora 15.

Also, what LOD said. And stop commenting on how well you think your topic is, it's annoying.

I want to make fun of this thread, but I'm equally as bad at making threads. Fun fact: I've only ever made about 4 lounge threads in the 6 years I have been here.

At least you realized when it was time to stop posting, a valuable skill many lack.

in his defense, the one that isn't locked is also over a year old. So everyone would just bitch at him that he necroed a thread.

I think thats because this topic has been done to death. I necvro threads all the time and I even know that this topic has been done to death. It's kind of like a pissing contest anyway.

Hehe, I don't make many good lounge threads either :P

first, change the sad title. No need to add "hopefully better". If it isn't, the lounge will ridicule you and then close. Then you'll know.

ON TOPIC:
I run:
core i7 965x (stock)
GTX 465 Superclocked
6GBs DDR3
No sound card (USB Logitech G930, wireless 7.1 surround sound gaming headset :D )
Mobo and Power Supply currently not worth mentioning :P

Yes but he already has two threads closed because they are duplicates of stuff that has already been posted multiple times.

I guess i see no need to open a thread to post your PC specs that no one gives a shit about anyway when there is already a topic on it.

well I did happen to say, which all of you apparently either failed to read, or just don't care about, that I was posting this thread from my phone, and as such, did NOT have the ability to do a search from, due to the fact that simply posting this thread ate up 40% of my battery life, of which is horrible anymore...

and I guess I had better just adopt wolfcoders philosophy of not making any threads as well...however that by no means that I will go silent here on dic... but to appease you all, I guess I will just stop making threads. happy now everyone?? I certainly hope so, because then, maybe, I can stop getting crap from everyone...

but I shall be going now, I shall be going back to programming now due to my programming partner finally showing up here at my house...so once again, good day to you all, and quite frankly, good riddens.

I read it, hence my sarcastic response. The sarcasm was supposed to highlight the fact that it wasn't necessary to have to search for one, BECAUSE THIS IS A PROGRAMMING FORUM. Even if it hasn't recently been discussed, it's not a creative or fun thread. It's a boring list of arbitrary specs that will be outdated in a matter of months.

On the upside you've learned to separate your thoughts into sections that could loosely be called paragraphs. The sentence still eludes you, but it's progress. Maybe our harassment of you is accomplishing something for once. Maybe, in time, you might learn something from this abuse.
