What Design Setup are you Running?


Yesterday I had my yearly computer upgrade, it saw me buying some things that I needed and wanted. I have been waiting for the time to upgrade all year and it finally came around, I am stoked. Coming back to the actual topic here, “What Design Setup are you Running?” I would like you to voice your opinion and let us know what you are running, what specs your computer or Mac has and what you use most of the time to fulfill your working or gaming requirements. It isn’t such a hard thing to do, just drop us a comment with your different specs and see how you make other people envy your setup.

I am going to start off by telling you what my rig consists of and I will indicate what I purchased yesterday for my yearly upgrade.


  • Intel Quad Core 3.6Ghz CPU
  • NForce 4 L775 Motherboard
  • 8 GB DDR2 1066mhz Ram – 2GB NEW

This is my Computer setup that i am currently running.
