Do You Have a Separate System Build for Specific Task Other than Your Main Rig?

Recommended Posts

main rig uses a 3930k, msi x79a-gd65 8d 64gb 8x8gb ram sli titan blacks. pretty much my work horse and the babe that helps me get some income.


core2duo e5300 and some mobo I forgot and a nxzt case uses as my storage server.


core i3 3220 with 2x4gb ram and a r9 290 sapphire vapor x on a prodigy itx for lan party.



edit: I still have a working dell studio hybrid as htpc on the living room :) and a working HP pavillion desktop with pentium 4 at 3.09ghz :) it has 512mb ram and a palit geforce fx5200 128mb :)

Live your life like a dream.

  1. Main rig
  2. HTPC (really a mid range gaming rig with a low end graphics card in it)
  3. NAS (unfinished as it's currently unpopulated)


I also bought and built my mothers PC which could be a mid range gaming rig if it had a graphics card. Basically if any of the rigs (except the NAS) breaks down we have a spare that would pass until it was fixed or replaced by just slipping in a graphics card

Actually used? I have just the primary and backup:


Main box: All in one desktop/server/storage/hypervisor.

Backup of main box: Keeps backup of data and is also able to run all of the VMs. Usually powered down.


I like to keep hardware count low and virtualize as much as possible.

Aside from my main rig I've got an Intel C2D E8400 rig for my Minecraft/TS server.

Well, I do when I'm not restricted to just wifi because the Ethernet ports on the modem got fried...

Never say it's not broken. Everything is broken. Why? Because everything needs MOAR POWA!
