Anyone out there still on a 775?

I built this rig about 3 years ago when i was a complete noob. So much regret.

CPU: Pentium e6700 @3.8 Hz
Cooler: H80
Ram: 4GB generic DDR2
GFX: Gigabyte GTX460 OC edition
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty 550W
Case: CM storm scout

Guys this rig is so funny, im suprised it even runs FC3 and BF3 tbh. Its still chugging along slowly but surely. I cannot wait till i get myself a 3570k.

So i was just wondering if anyone out there is still running a 775 board

Just for benching :P

Technology has moved on so much now that it doesn't make sense to run on 775 anymore unless you have a q9550 or the likes which are still half decent chips. I'm running on a Phenom II and that is starting to feel old now :P

This is my main rig I will probably turn this rig into a [email protected] machine when i upgrade tbh. It seems like the right thing to do IMO

Is there even any money in bit coin mining anymore? I thought the rates were pretty terrible these days?
