Default Build threads

Anyone else sick of all the, 'OMG LOOK AT MY NEW UBER 1337 BUILD!'

It seems like all these people are running some crazy setup of 3gb+ ram, a quad core processor, and two 8800gtx's in SLI. Not to mention a monitor that runs at higher resolution then the hubble telescope. And some crazy state of the art water cooling system to make everything run at absolute zero.

It's just depressing. I mean, I don't think my computer is bad. It gets the job done. As long as I clean sweep windows every year, and keep it virus free, it runs decently. It plays Source, Bioshock, BF2, and all my games. I get by doing my photoshop for work on it when I need to. But I can't help but be jealous of these people with these crazy setups.

It seems like every day I logon theres some new person out there with a computer whos video card has more memory then my entire system.

Most computer monitors use a higher resolution then your average television.

Way to burst my ranting bubble. I have no idea what the resolution of my tv actually is. But you get the point. I changed it from TV to hubble telescope. Happy?

Lol, but I know what you mean. I will upgrade soon anyway. I'm starting to multitask so much, my computer just cant hack it anymore.

Don't hate because people are building themselves a new system. What did you spend on your computer when you got it around 1K? Look what you can get for 1K these days. Its not like people are spending ungodly amounts to get a quad core, 4gigs of memory and a good GPU etc.

BTW my TV still has a higher resolution than my computer. TV 1920X1080 and my computer is 1680X1050.

If it really depresses you to see what other people are buying and own maybe you should not be on a computer forum. As thats the nature of a computer forum to talk about your latest hardware and help people with new builds etc. And with todays prices and how tech moves it should be pretty obvious there going to get better components then what you had in your system. Don't think i'm putting your system down i'm sure when you bought it, it was a excellent system.

My system here used to be one of the best on the forum but now by comparison its mediocre at best. It does what I need it to for now when I need more i'll upgrade.
