    Lightbulb What spec is your main computer?

    Just thinking about how technology has got to a point where most programs will run on a pc that is fairly recent and that i feel the game/software writers need to use more of our systems resources as the tech is comming along nicely i feel games etc are behind still

    Im running:

    Quad Core Q6600 2.4ghz @ 3.2ghz
    Xigmatek AIO-S80DP All-in-one Liquid Cooling Idle - 21* and 100% bench i hit 49* max
    Asus P5K
    4GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Corsair - built in heatsinks
    Nvidia 8600GT 512mb PCIe Graphics
    2x WD 640gb 32mb cache
    1x Maxtor 500gb 16mb cache (back up)
    samsung 22" Syncmaster and 19" Samsung.
    CoolerMaster Modular PSU 600w Silent


    Whats everyone else specs?
