If someone asks what pc I have, what the hell do I tell them?

My response is usually:

"Built it myself. Intel i5 3570K with an AMD 7850."

That's what I used to have.

Processor, graphics card, memory, maybe operating system. So like I would say

Intel 4690, 16GB RAM (speed isn't real important), AMD 290. Those 3 things pretty much give an indication of the performance of your computer. They're kind of like the horse power and gas mileage of your car.

I've been asked that too..Usually by people that don't know computers..So I can't just list the specs and they would know what I'm talking about. And I don't wanna be rude and just be like..'Oh, well you'd have no idea what I'm talking about anyway so why ask', even though I'm thinking it..

I know what you mean. My wife actually built my PC for me, I just picked the parts and made sure everything was compatible. When I tell people who don't know a lot about computers that my wife built my PC they look absolutely shocked. It's pretty funny tbh.

I do this as well, though I'd throw in if you're overclocking as well since it will change the power you're getting out of it. Only the geekier people will care beyond that point. "oh you've got an Asrock Pro3 mobo?! Sweet!" Lol.

I've always say "I built it myself". They're like "oh, cool" and that's the end of it. I've never actually had a person ask me about my specs.

I have no idea why, but the only time anybody ever asks me what kind of computer I have is after they hear me say I built it myself and in that case I usually just rattle off the specs.

770 GTX 2gb
12gb Ram
W8 OS
256gb SSD
1TB HDD

Built myself

I got asked this question a lot in college since I was a comp Sci major and a ton of ppl there played PC games.

Nowadays at my job not so much.

I just mention Processor, Video card and Ram.


Pretty much what I do too, if they seem interested I'll tell them my OC and that I have an SSD as well. I've even had a few people ask for more than that which was a pleasant surprise, these have usually been people interested in getting into pc gaming but not knowing where to start.

My computer is about 3x more capable than the Xbox one

It's a good point of reference
