Description

Sharing my build from Mid-2009.

Originally had a BFG 280, upgraded to a EVGA 570 in 2012, then added a 2nd 570 in 2015.

Kept upgrading as the years went by (more ram, SSD)

This thing weighs a TON and it was not fun lugging this around to LAN's.

Used for everyday gaming from 2009-2017. Posting as I'm retiring her soon.

Thanks for looking!

My i7-860 build still running strong too :P Similar performance to 8300 FX chips

Nice build!

Damn, I can't imagine gaming on a 1.25GB GPU in 2015+. I'm assuming you mainly played one game for years or older games in general?

Yeah, I play a lot of older games with the boys I LAN with. Currently working on a 8700K build with a 1070Ti to replace this system.

Like?

I'm curious as to what 2 GTX 570s run well.

L4D2, TF2, CS:GO, Borderlands 2.

We play a lot of older games during LAN's: Worms Armageddon, Flatout 2, The Ship.

She's definitely showing her age trying to play current games (Overwatch, Pubg) hence - time to spend some dough and upgrade!

Yo i just wanna know if you are gonna get SLI in your next build since that nice SLI bridge would go to waste if you didn't. Also very clean build and I would imagine that when you first put in the 570 it gamed like a champ.

I know! It's a sweet bridge. I was bummed to learn that it only lights up with 6 series GPU's and up.

Upvoted for the grey brushed aluminium K70, I'd have loved to get one of these.
