Post Your Battle Stations and Build Setups!

Kubuntu is only worth while on weak sauce system or if you want KDE out the gate.

Mint isn't too different from the Ubuntu lineup, just imagine running Ubuntu with a Windowd like DE and no Ubuntu software center.

That's mainly why I want to try Kubuntu, for KDE.

 

What about something like Debian?

Currently focusing on my video game collection.

It doesn't matter what you play games on, just play good games you enjoy.

Never used Debian. Just:

Ubuntu

Kubuntu

Lubuntu

Xubuntu

Mint KDE

Mint Gnome

Mint Mate

Mate Cinnamin

Backtrack 5

Kali.

 

Also, you can install any DE you want on most systems.

Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

Ah, I've used:

Ubuntu

Chromium OS

Xubuntu (now)

Puppy Dog Linux.

 

So not a big library, but I like to give them a try, see how I like them.

I've used two versions of Puppy.

An old Slacko(?) and MacPup 550.

Plus Android and Android x86.

Never got Remix OS, SteamOS, or Chromium to work.

 

My favorite so far is Ubuntu, but I like Kali/Backtrack's aero like DE.

I like the blue of Xubuntu.  For Chromium, I put it on an old Toshiba I used to have.  It installed no issued for me.  But I only got it to work via actual DVD instead of USB

This is the first time I have tried to build a watercooled pc. I did have a little leak from the top cap on the res. It was my fault, I tightened down the fitting to hard and cracked it. I am very happy with all of the parts i have used. 
Motherboard-Gigabyte z270 gaming 7 
GPU-gigabyte gtx 1080 ti extreme oc to 2075 mhz and 6000 mhz on the memory
CPU-i7 7700k oc to 5.1 at 1.325v 
Case-thermaltake view 31 
Memory-32gb of Patriot viper elite 2133 mhz oc to 3000mhz 
Harddrives-1tb hdd, Samsung evo 500gb   
Primochill - d5 pwm pump, 2 360mm radiator, 1/2 inch rigid PETG tubing, ice intensified - Low-Conductive Coolant, and Rigid RevolverSX Series Fitting  
Ekwb- gigabyte 1080 ti water block Supremacy EVO CPU Water Block  
The reservoir is a monsoon reservoir 
Cpu max temp was around 70c and the gpu never went over 45c

How much did this all cost you? I would like to build a similar rig as a guest PC.

Bit of a work in progress, kinda. Trying to do X299 on the cheap, as contradictory as it sounds, by reusing components from older systems.

 

Current build state:

i7-7800X 6 core OC at 4.3 GHz all core Prime95 stable, have tested to 4.9 non-AVX but need to play about with settings more.

Asus X299 TUF mark 2, currently set up for that kinda rainbow LED effect if I can do something about the power cables in front...

G.Skill Ripjaws 4 3333C16 @ 3200 4x4GB (red)

EK P360 kit, with extra P240 rad.

Asus 980Ti reference, with EK full cover block (to be upgraded)

Samsung 960 Evo 500GB

Corsair Air 540 case

Corsair HX1000i PSU - overkill, but it didn't cost much more than the 750/850 I was looking at so why not?

 

I'm thinking about rehousing it in a nicer case, perhaps Corsair 460X as a mid range option, or In Win 909 if I say to hell with the budget.

I'd install some before I get rid of the case. I prefer a decent size case that I can stuff way too much stuff in.

Corsair TX850

Thermaltake Ultra 120

Coolermaster HAF 932

Ikea Galant Desk

 

I know I know, it's an ancient platform, but it's still going strong. As you can see, I did some minor upgrades, so it is still able to perform everything I need it to. I will probably upgrade this in 2017 when Skylake-E is out, along with GTX 1080Ti and Intel's Xpoint storage

just wondering, how is the i7 920 holding up in 2017?

Obviously the best setup ever!

My 2006 MacBook Pro with a CRT!

Specs of MacBook Pro

2.16GHz Core 2 Duo T7400 (woooow!)

2GB of DDR2 RAM (More than anyone ever needs!)

ATI Radeon X1600 GPU (The bestestest GPU ever!)

250GB HDD (storage for days!)

 

Don't know about the CRT, I got it for free.  

This also ain't my real setup, I just needed to quickly test the CRT to see if it worked.  It does, obviously.

It does what I need it to do. 1080p gaming is not too shabby but it's really starting to show its age.

 

I am using this PC mostly as a media server now though and not much else. I do game on it once in a while but nothing too intensive. Will probably upgrade sometime next year :)
