How do you get the specs next to your name

On any page of the PCMR Reddit, look for this section of the sidebar. You can hit Edit to select a style of flair and input what you want it to say (you can have it say anything you want), or if you want to get in-depth, you can click "click here for GOG flair and more" for lots of customization.

Nice case, Corsair carbine spec 04, my favorite case

SPEC-OMEGA owner here: it's fantastic, minus the very limited cable space in the back :)

[–]TheZenKitten 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Microcenter always has some outstanding deals. I got a $550 monitor there for $300 because it was open box.

[–]Wierdio 1 point2 points  (2 children)

RX 580 costs $500 at Microcenter when on Amazon it only costs $289

[–]TheZenKitten 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The refurbished and open box items are where the deals are at.

[–]Wierdio -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Hi fellow Houstonian!

[–]Necrolegion 18 points19 points  (1 child)

I did something like this over a year ago... that bastard hardly gets on PC to play.

He confessed he only uses the PC for watching hentai, the last time I confronted him about it.

[–]RaghuNath1419 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Doki doki might be something he would like

[–]conn911 62 points63 points  (1 child)

[–]AltruisticTangerine 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Every time that I make an upgrade I give the spare piece to a friend, we are internet friends. Past week I sent to him an Radeon RX460. I've already ascended but I feel that I must help him to do the same.

I preffer play with him than have some cash on my pocket.

[–]Dogearbox 5 points6 points  (6 children)

That’s so kind of you. Faith in humanity restored.

[–]AltruisticTangerine 7 points8 points  (0 children)

For me MasterRace is not all about the best hardware or 60+fps, is about play with your friends too.

Someday I will meet him, I swear!

[–]Articulat3 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Well how do you know he isn't a serial killer? Faith in humanity? think again.

[–]Dogearbox 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s true,you got me.

[–]Articulat3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol I tease, but you never know...

[–]AltruisticTangerine 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It’s okay for me being killed by who tag me in wholesome memes. At least he think about me, right?

[–]Articulat3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol its all about perspective, but sure why not.

[–]JustinfuckinProulx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same with me and my friend in Florida.

[–]FKhandaqji 21 points22 points  (3 children)

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Technically I kept my case ram and secondary HDD

[–]VenKitsune*Massively Outdated specs cuz i upgrade too much and im lazy 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Ah the good old "I upgraded. What I actually mean is I literally put a new computer in there and reformatted the hard drive"

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ssshh don't let the plebs know.

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'll post both PCpartpcker lists of his build and my new build when I get home from work in 5 hours

[–]ShadowTH277 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was really cool of you dude. Bet you're the real winner, you have a co-op partner now.

[–]Pisto1PeetRyzen 5 1600 @ 4.0Ghz | GTX 1070 | 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz 2 points3 points  (4 children)

OP is the anti /u/HDMICable1

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 3 points4 points  (3 children)

What did that user do?

[–]Pisto1PeetRyzen 5 1600 @ 4.0Ghz | GTX 1070 | 8GB DDR4 3000Mhz 6 points7 points  (1 child)

AutoModerator doesn't seem to like the links that would give context. If you Google search his username, you'll find a bit more info.

Basically, the VP of AMD personally sent his 10 year old kid brother an AMD care package as he was gaming on a low end machine. The care package included an R9 380, a 1440p 144hz monitor, and some AMD merch. Instead of helping his little brother install the new goodies, /u/HDMICable1 took them for himself to upgrade his own machine. He even used the new monitor in his eyefinity display. When PCMR got upset, he was full of excuses. He even had the gall to give his spare parts to a friend instead of handing them down to his little brother. It was shitty, some AMD reps chimed in to express their dismay.

Wow. What a fucking douchebag.

[–]ninja1635i76700HQ, GTX960m, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 500GB m.2 SSD 3 points4 points  (4 children)

If you upgrade ALL of your old parts, can't you just say you've built a new system?

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Technically I kept my case ram and secondary HDD

[–]ninja1635i76700HQ, GTX960m, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 500GB m.2 SSD 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Then, technically, you didn't upgrade all of your parts. Doesn't matter though, just teasing you mostly, since you worded it a bit silly.

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Crap just checked my title I did word it oddly.

[–]Maestruli10 728x | Titan XK | 17GB DDR7 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Username checks out.

[–]CrazyDave48 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have 2 brothers that also game on PC so giving my "old" parts to them is always an easy excuse for me to upgrade before I really need to.

Congrats on the upgrade OP and keep passing on what you can!

[–]Sodapaup 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You're a good friend

Thats an interesting cpu cooler, do you have the name?

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cooler master hyper t2 I think

[–]BeerGogglesFTW2500K OC + R9 390 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If people traveling with their PC tower with the GPU still hooked in becomes a daily thing on /r/pcmasterrace I'm going to need to unsub. Its too cringy.

[–]TheBTSWarrior 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Your a good fucking person mate, a good fucking person.

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you so much!

[–]BlueBockseri5 7600K - GTX 1070 - 16GB RAM 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Upgraded all my parts

So you're saying you bought a new computer, aren't you?

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Except my case and ram and 2nd HDD. Sorry for my poorly worded title

Never tell a man this handsome to put a shirt on.

[–]The_DirectorPhenom II x4 950 1050Ti 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Remove the GPU and heatsink!

[–]Rossy1210011I7 2600K @4.7GHz / Strix 1080 / 32GB WAM 5 points6 points  (0 children)

As much as i agree for short and careful journeys it is usually fine, and even better, lay the case on its side and there should be very little chance even over longer journeys. GPU is the most important to remove, never had issues with coolers having had a Hyper 212 and a Noctua NH D-15 in car journeys before, though my GPU was removed for both.

About to go pick up this case at the Dallas store for 50 bucks!

[–]panzermuffin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tell him that he looks very friendly and that I'm happy for him. Great gesture to give him your old parts!

[–]JustinfuckinProulx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I send all of my old parts to someone I’ve never met in person that lives on the opposite side of the country(Maine-Florida) because we have played games for years and they don’t have the means to upgrade. It’s always a good feeling to help someone who isn’t in the same situation you are and might not have the expendable budget you do.

I posted a pic of my face to this sub, and I was mercilessly bullied, you do it, and they're downright nice to you, maybe I do look like a serial killer

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's my friends happy non serial killer face not mine lol.

[–]sdrawkcabdaertseb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On one hand - you're a good guy for doing that for your friend, they're lucky to have a mate like you, on the other I have an overwhelming urge upon seeing your facial expression to either Photoshop on a green suit and a box of lucky charms or transpose you into Mordor and hand you a ring.

[–]lordkoldii5 7500 / EVGA GTX 1060 3GB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best way to reuse old (but still good) hardware! Also, you get a new gaming pal!

[–]laupyluke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always love posts like these, especially when the person receiving the item is in the picture. The look on their faces makes me happy :)

[–]DasEineEtwas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OOOU what a beauty. Great pc btw

[–]OUTL4Wgaming 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually how I got my PC. All I had to buy was the PSU, sad, and upgrade the GPU later on. As a person that's been in the place your friend is.. thank you.

[–]wiLLplz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Love that feeling. Gave my girlfriend's uncle my 980Ti and 6700K when I upgraded to the 1080Ti and 8700K and he about cried man. He works, but just makes enough to maybe buy a game here or there, so I like to help him out and toss him my old parts.

[–]KinzukoGTX1070,16GB DDR4, Ryzen 7 1700X 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i did this for my sister... too bad she accepted the gift but didnt actually take the box to her house even after i reminded her about it...

[–]hobovirginitySpecs/Imgur here[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That is the delivery photo. He was holding it lying down the whole 10 minute ride from my place to his.
