My Ultimate Gaming Rig

My PC is a desktop based system in which all of the invidual components inside it are assembled by myself. My first PC was assembled in early 2006 was a very 'humble' one. From time to time, I slowly upgrade that PC in order to keep pace with the current technology.

The upgrades basically are: From single-core to dual-core to quad-core processor; From 64MB to 128MB to 256MB to 512MB to 1GB graphics card; From 256MB DDR400 to 768MB DDR400 to 1.5GB DDR400 to 2GB DDR2-800 to 4GB DDR3-1333 RAM; From 40GB IDE to 120GB SATA to 320GB SATA-II to 1TB SATA-II hard drive.

Now, my desktop PC is quite advanced in specifications and perform greatly without much problem. It performs its duty as a good gaming machine to me. I can basically play any new or old (of course) 3D games at high settings!
