My music alone is well over 120GB.  Then there's all the games, movies, etc.  Bear in mind this is just about every file I've been accumulating since...2004 ish?  With a few files that I managed to salvage from 2001-2003 from my old, old, old computer, and minus an unfortunate loss of a good portion of 2007 (Including the source videos and WMM files for just about every video I made that year) because I only had that on one hard drive that died on me that year.  I'm a huge packrat, basically.  All those files from 2004-present are backed up twice (Minus a few large files that I couldn't care less about backing up like large movies and whatnot).  Just to give you an idea of how much is in use...

vgnmEtt.png

The 3TB drive I got a few months ago and that's basically my "peace of mind" drive knowing that I won't be running out of space for anything any time soon.

 

I tried using my old HDDs but the two that I have OSs installed on BSOD'd immediately on startup because of the chipset differences and I couldn't install Windows 7 to a drive larger than 2TB and it wouldn't let me make a new partition so I said fuck it since my build came to a lot less money than I thought it would so I spent the extra on the SSD today and here we are now.

 

Needless to say I am quite satisfied with the results.

Well I guess to be fair I have a 500 GB external that's almost full of TV shows and movies, and I have a 500 GB (or maybe 1 TB, I don't remember) HDD specifically for games though that one has a lot of space left still. The SSD is just for Windows and random files.

Yeah, I have a 500GB external drive, too, but it very, very rarely gets use as the read/write speed is absolutely horrendous (It is from about 2008 or so; I'm sure they've much improved since then but I only really need external drives for so many situations). It's only ever used nowadays to put Steam games on to bring over to a friend's house and oh god does it take forever to install anything to it. Like Left 4 Dead 2 I just installed to it and it took five or six hours to install as opposed to the 20 minutes it usually takes to download and install to my 1TB HDD.

But yeah, the SSD I have now is pretty much going to be for Windows only, maybe a few games that take forever to load here and there like TF2. I am legitimately curious to see how long it'll take to load the game on this.; I'm a little worried about the longevity of the drive, though; I've only done a little research but apparently the more you write to an SSD the shorter of a lifespan it has.

 

Y'know the most annoying part is reconfiguring Windows and Firefox to be just as it was on my old drive.  Course, I'm sure everyone here knows just how anal and particular I am with configurations, layouts, UIs, and how much I cannot accept change.

I totally forgot to mention to you that Windows 7 doesn't support drives bigger than 2TB. My fucking bad. Well, unless it's UEFI or some shit like that.

As far as my drive use goes, I've lost a lot of content over the years, unfortunately, and I try to keep my drives lean. I don't keep a lot of media on there, as I'm just now starting to get movies, music and shows back (I did a foolish deletion like a moron a few years back; same goes for almost all of the YouChew backups and archives I used to have).

I won't need anymore space for a long time but I probably need a bigger SSD someday. The read/write thing is most definitely true, but if you keep your computer on for a while it shouldn't be too much of an issue, not before you inevitably replace it anyway.

Like I've said many, many times, I plan to upgrade my video card once DirectX12 comes out. My card, an HD 6950, is starting to show its age (it's 3 years old). DX12 is confirmed to ship with Windows 10, so I guess whenever that releases I'll get one. It was supposed to be December of 2015 (DX12's release) but I think they moved it up. My processor is still way too much power for what I need (I got one of those 4.0GHZ AMD FX 8-cores for a little present to myself last year during tax time along with the solid state drive) so that should last a while, at least. And yes it emulates like a beast.

Haha, yeah, that's no problem, I should've known but totally forgot about the 2TB limit, too.  I was all set to go and then Windows Setup gave me a big middle finger when I tried installing it, so I was like "Fuck, I may as well get that SSD now" but it was 11PM at that point so I just went to bed and woke up and got it.

 

I swear I was like a kid on Christmas Eve.  I had so much trouble sleeping. 

 

I just finally put the finishing touches on the configurations for everything and I'm pretty much all set.  Man, this thing really runs like a dream and I cannot wait for Ground Zeroes to come out so I can really test the waters with it.  It's so surreal being able to just mindlessly turn everything up to the highest settings possible and have no framerate drops whatsoever.

I have 2 new additions to my fleet of computers, both of which have arrived:

 

Macintosh 512k (x2)

*Processor: Motorola 68000 @ 8Mhz

*RAM: 512k built-in

*9" Monochrome CRT screen

*Hard Drive: None

*400k Floppy Drive

*No Operating System (Must boot from floppy)

 

One thing I will note is that one of them does not work, as the video has collapsed (an issue with the video circuit).

It's my dad's PC, but whatever.

eiDIE7P.jpg

Look at that old monitor and keyboard.

Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 270 Processor

Video Card: AMD 760G

3.6 GB of memory

About 250 GB of storage

3 disk drives, 2 of which are broken

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 755DFX (1024x768)

Other Stuff: Philips SHP1900 headphones, Microsoft LifeCam VX-2000

Yeah, it's definitely not the kind of PC you would want to run AAA games on, but for stuff like Vegas 7, it's does a decent job.

One day I will get my own PC...

Here's my rather barren desk. I'm getting my new computer fixed soon, so this is my setup for the time being. (Yes, that is a rubber band holding my headphones in place. I couldn't find time to fix it, plus this computer is going to be retired for a while anyways.)

 

Not pictured: My Logitech G502, Monster Inspiration headphones, and my cat. (She always jumps on my desks and stomps on my keyboard all the damn time)
