Guru3D Rig of the Month - July 2011 -
7. Why ATI or NVIDIA, why Intel or AMD?
I the 8 months of the build of this desk I had the chance to test 2 Nvidia cards and 1 Ati. In my opinion Nvidia is more stable with drivers. For example I had to feed my Ati 5970 more volts even on Stock speed to be stable with some drivers. Though Ati is best if you have 1 card and want to use 3 screens.
I still have such a trauma from 2 AMD cpus Ill probably never choose them above Intel again. My Amd K6 550 really gave me a stress full year back then, together with my Jetway mainboard. Thats not AMDs fault but my friend with Intel cpu had the time of his life
Second thing, worked hard for a new system some years ago. Finally I had my first extreme cpu, an AMD FX-57, never paid that much for a cpu, even till now. 3 months later AMD came out with dualcore cpus (4800+), my FX got pwned by a 3 times cheaper cpu.
Really wasnt happy with that. Intel -- NEVER had any problems with it. But dont think i'm a fan boy, i'm not, thats just what I experienced in 15 years
8. Does your PC live up to your expectations ?
Certainly yes! Only thing I would like to change is the raid controller, this one is Sata300, so pretty useless for the new ssds.
The Guru3D Rig of the month September 2012 build comes from a Francis Vilaca. At 26 years of age he was able to build an amazing looking machine with the most wicked liquid cooling radiator you will have seen in a while.
Guru3D Rig of the Month - August 2012
This months build comes from a Mikkel Olsen. At 27 years of age Mikkel probably did not build the most beautiful game PC we have had submitted, but his room nearly is one huge PC, a freakish gaming please heaven for many of you. The guy has a lot going on in there as you are about to find out. Come to think of it, the guy should put up some Miami Vice signs in there to get that good old 80'ies feel to it :)

Guru3D Rig of the Month - June 2012
One person we have been following closely on his build-log is Eric Soeters from the Netherlands, and although his build still is not 100% finished, it's nearly there and just amazing. He has built the chassis from ground up including some very hard work. The end result is his new PC called the "Exo-S", we'll just leave the explanation and working to the man himself as the only thing that is left after you have seen this build is to clap your hands and yell bravo ...
