I have a beast of a machine:

Proof:


And what kind of stuff do you play on it? I have a feeling you rather play Minecraft than Crysis   Tongue
I don't like Minecraft much, and I don't have Crysis Smiley

I mostly play Battlefield 3, Batman: Arkham City, and Portal 2 Grin

@ra4king:

You got a 5GHz processor? Okey... thats fine Cheesy
How much FPS do you get in Minecraft? It's kind of super cpu heavy. My record: 190 fps, my friends record (with a much better pc Tongue ): 880 fps.
Can you beat that? (without OptiFine btw...)
I'm away from my computer for a month right now so I can't test, but I'm pretty sure 880 FPS is not possible. If I recall correctly, highest I could get was 400-500 FPS Smiley

I'm having a hard time finding the perfect keyboard too. You'll be amazed by the amount of dirt-stupid designs.

I want the Enter key to be 2 rows high
I want the Backspace key to be 2 keys wide
I want an empty row between ArrowUp and End
I don't want a Shutdown key next to Escape
I want both shift keys to be 3 keys wide
I want the function keys to have the same shape as normal keys

Yeah I dont get what it is with keyboard designers, that they have to redo designs all the time.

Keyboard layout is quite important for workflow of course

So I have this


Beside the left shift key being 3 spaces, this has it all. It's great.
Of course german layout =P

Well, there's my Toshiba laptop simulating the low-end computers in testing (it is NOT as good as the specs would have you think):
15.6" 1366 x 768 Display
Intel I3-380M 2.53 GHz Dual-Core
4GB DDR3 1066MHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M
Windows 7 64-bit

Home rig...also simulating low-end computers in testing (though it is running rather well!):
19" bollocks monitor
Intel Core2Duo 2.66GHz
3GB DDR3 1066MHz
Geforce 9600GT 1GB
Windows XP 32-bit (CBA changing, and it's nice to have another platform to test on)

Dreamcast *chuckles* you youngsters, you Cheesy
I'm from the time of the Sega MasterSystem II and Sega MegaDrive II. "Alex the Kidd" and Sonic 1, 2, and 3 are the ones I remember fondest, although I think "Super Hang-on" and "Super Street Fighter II Turbo SE" also got their fair share of button-mashing. Interesting fact: I never bought new controllers for them. They were like Nokia 3310s, those things ^^
Not like the N64 or the first PS controllers.

I'm not that young =D
Grew up with a Sega Master System and later a Mega Drive too
Its funny actually, in my life I perfectly went the correct route of video game systems:
ATARI 2600 -> Sega Master System -> Sega Mega Drive -> Playstation then 2, then 3
Although I'm not that old I did the correct order by accident I guess.
Has also to do with the fact that I always got the old video game systems from distant relatives and stuff =D

And sadly, I never owned a Dreamcast when it was active, I bought this one 2 years ago.

But yeah Master System... gamepad that has to start and select and alex kidd was built into the system... which was hard as hell compared to mario bros

I remember when I was 8 years old I would take apart my atari 2600's joysticks and tape a dime over the button contact to reduce the travel on the button and make it more sensitive for better shooty action.

I'm dirt broke, since I've been studying in America for the last 11 months. I got my laptop with me, a Razer Mamba mouse, and
I also have Plantronics GameCom 777 headset.

Get ready for some stats on my laptop.

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64)
2 gHz AMD Phenom II N930 Quad-Core
6 GB DDR3 RAM

It's an HP Pavilion dv6. Please, never buy anything in this laptop-case. It's poor design, and dust stacks up so easily.
It slows my computer down a lot, and just recently it began giving me an error where the fan would fail completely, not allowing me to
start up my computer. I wouldn't care too much about this, if it wasn't for the fact that everything has to be taken out of the laptop, before it can be cleaned. The heatsink and fan is not accessible, unless you tear it all apart. I'm afraid to do this, but it doesn't run well otherwise. I'm going to try it out very soon, because it just isn't working.  I really would like to get a different setup once I get home, but I don't have any money. Meh, I say. Meh.

I have a really sweet 18,4 inch Toschiba Laptop. It has OpenGL 3.3 And it never by any chance is to hot. I dunno why but this boy runs very smooth (Well okay, it's a Laptop GPU so you just can't ex├╝ect much).

I never made myself buying a normal tower... Mostly because I don't have that much money and my "Developer Station" should be mobile.

If you use Windows, idk, exept for checking with LWJGL Tongue Cheesy

If you use Linux, just call "glxinfo" from command-line Smiley

Yes. When using slick2D you still have access to the lower-level LWJGL methods Smiley
(You can test OpenGL versions with LWJGL in that way:
1  
GLContext.getCapabilities().OpenGL20 // This tests for OpenGL version 2.0. Use OpenGL30 to test for 3.0 etc.
)

Heh I still have mine from 4.5 years ago and it's in really good working condition! Smiley

A quick way to get the version, albeit not always accurate, is to check for the OpenGL version the driver claims the support: glGetString(GL_VERSION)

Indeed. However, as things go, most friends had Super Nintendo - not so much original NES.
And well eventually I played them "all" by today. And some of them like Ninja Gaiden (NES) are my all time favorite games now.
Actually I did own a N64, but I still think it sucks hard - one of the lamest consoles ever: mario, zelda and a few gems, but overall, really poor in comparison with PS1

Late to the thread, might as well chip in anyway ..

I'm running a modest 3 year old box on _mostly_ the stock hardware. I've gone through a few hdd's, I've had to replace the gigabit network card, and I added the nvidia card because the onboard graphics performance was awful. It came with Win7 but I replaced that with ubuntu 10.04 a few years back. More recently (few days ago) I replaced that with ubuntu 12.04 after buying a 2TB hdd.

Hardware:
CPU: 2x Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz
RAM: 6GB (not sure what type)
GPU: GeForce GT220 1GB

Software:
Operating System: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Editor of choice: vim

Here is the desk/battlestation as a whole:


Closer pic of the tower itself - just a simple ASUS dekstop. Google TV is sitting on top, along with a pillow for a convenient footrest. Box to the left is a Bose sub.


Here's the keyboard I'm using. I like it because it has raised chiclet (laptop-style) keys. It's also completely solar powered and wireless. I've never had to replace any batteries.

Pretty cool.
Although I couldn't handle an enter key that isn't 2 keys high. Whenever I work on those I press the key above all the time Grin
