Nice setup gavinseabrook! Sandybridge-E was overkill for me, I could never justify Haswell-E! :D


I downsized to ITX at the start of the year, then got rid of the majority of my desktop altogether.

Currently using an old Dell Precision 490 that I liberated from works scrap pile... 

Threw in an SSD, a couple 1tb drives, and added the GTX670 I still had laying around. Replaced the horrendous Delta 90mm memory fan for a silent-ish Noctua.


2 x Intel X5355

16gb Hynix PC2-5300F

MSI GTX 670 Power Edition

128gb Samsung 830 / 2 x 1tb WD Green

Generic Dell everything else

3 x LG IPS234V

Logitech MX3200 desktop


Actually runs quite nice with Windows 10 on it. Not earth shattering performance, but I can't complain for the minimal costs!
