I have had that drive for several years, took it out of a WD My book external enclosure when that was still possible. I only use it now because it still works but I probably shouldn't due to it's age.

I'm guessing it's along the lines of going to battle vs a dance off. I kid, I kid. ;)

Exactly - a thread for battle stations, and someone posts their imac.

Like starting a "Post your guns" and supposed posts a picture of a rubberband gun.... painted nicely.

@TitoistJust doesnt belong, didnt mean anything nasty by it.

I game on it and its performance is way higher than my previous 2012 Custom PC Build with a Radeon HD6950 MSI Twin Frozr. Thus, I would still consider it a worthy "Battlestation". I continue to shock people on StarCraft 2 who ask what system I "built" to load the game so fast and I tell them its an iMac. However, unlike the picture, I actually use a Razer Naga Molten Edition when I game.

 

Some game benchmarks averages:

World of Warcraft - High Graphics 95fps

Starcraft 2 - Ultra 87fps

Diablo 3 - High 88fps

Star Wars The Old Republic - High 121fps

Battlefield 1 - High 49fps

Battlefield 4 - High 62fps

 

For these games, I have to lower the resolution to about 3K, 5K take the FPS and half it, except for Starcraft 2. It somehow manages to still run smoothly at full 5K.

 

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Right on !   Thats cool.

I stand corrected.
What video card does your imac have ?  Honestly - as little as I game anymore, I wouldnt mind getting a mac.  One of my favorite all time computers was the previous gen Mac Pro

But, if I were to get a mac, it would be a mbp - I am covered on the stupidly overkilled, never uses more than 50% resources, PSU fan never spins, desktop - dont need another.

Please ignore the mess!

Tower is behind my monitors - rocking the i7 6700k with a SLi 1080 and Dominator Platinum setup inside an NZXT S340 Black case - no RGB for me - not really into flashy setups 

 

Being my monitors support freesync, I'm waiting for those darn Vegas to come out so I could replace my SLi with some decent crossfire cards

I don't do PC games too much any more so my 'Battlestation' is an Alienware 15 R3. Main machine is a 2014 MBP 15"...

It's nearing the end of 2017 and the thread only has 2 pages :(

I've recently upgraded to a new PC - Intel NUC + GFX1080 eGPU. Check it out :) 

The NUC itself is under the monitor to the right.

That looks like the newest one at $300-400, depends on which one. You need RAM, HDD, and OS separate, tho.
