    Dunno about OCZ PSUs but their SSD's are not the most reliable around. See if you can fit an Intel or Crucial one in your budget (Corsair's SSD are more reliable too).
    I should get some pictures and post my setup too :S

    Just ordered a Samsung Spinpoint, NZXT Hades and 4gigs of 1600 RAM. I was gonna do it the 25th but since the HDD plants in thailand are flooded I needed to do that now before prices went up, as they did on CDON.com and komplett.se. Next month I'll get my MB and use inergrated graphics until christmas when I'll buy a 560Ti Twin Frozr aswell as a new screen.

    Stupid 750-1750kr per month.. I suck at saving so I have to buy parts every month.. :/

    Nah it's not like I can't find a desk that big, I just don't have the space/the means for it. My desk is about say 4 feet long and my parents weren't too pleased. x_x

    You from the Chicago area dude? (Because that's where I am, well a bit north...)

    That's a pretty badass desk setup though!

    I work from home, so I spend 8-12 hours sitting here every day, probably why it gets so cluttered so easily. The monitor on the right (with the bull peaking over the monitor) and the machine dwarfed behind the HAF-X is my work machine.

    I live in Fort Worth, TX right now, moved here a year ago because my fiance lives here, but I lived in Chicago for the 8 years previously and in the northern midwest area pretty much all of my life until now. Hopefully soon, I'll be back up there, just need to convince the fiance to move...easier said than done.

    Yeah, the camera didn't do a good job with the sunlight! It leaves the room with an orange tint because of the curtains. The rest of the room is covered with Bears and Cubs stuff too, as this is my "Chicago away from Chicago" room.

    To celebrate page #200 and of course nearly 4,000 posts in the thread (or 100 pages for some of you -.- )... I'll update on what my setup looks like a few weeks after my getting a desk. Direct links to pretty beefy size photos.

    Looks good (the cables on the floor are somewhat messy though). Maybe you could try having the keyboard on the keyboard shelf (I hope you understand what I mean) to save some workspace on the desk?
    (it's your 4000th post too)

    I despiiiiissse keyboard trays! Especially for my gigantic G15. I don't need much workspace and I can pull out the tray to have something to write on. :P

    By the way folks, yes, that's a working N64 hooked up to my computer. ;p

    The working N64 alone makes me tip my hat. I so wish I hadn't sold mine. An emulator, even with an original N64 controller, just isn't the same....

    I find those also to feel kind of unstable, I've had one crash on me before. >_< Not to mention the audio seems to have issues with weird noises. I remember like a constant sort of tapping noise.

    Oh and btw, /salute to fellow HAF X owner. ^_<

    You are spot on. It works as well as one could expect a fan controller to work, I guess. Though I kind of wish I knew about the other fan controllers available way back when. It was more of an impulse buy than a planned part of the computer.... but it works. It does make an annoying beep when you touch any of the buttons, not because there is an error but just to basically say "your order is my command." :P I want one of the ones with the dials/knobs that you turn and has the LED circles around them. Those are nice and slick.

    Oh I forgot to mention about the cables on the floor.... yeah. It could be better, but those are a lot of charging things that I need fairly constantly since my camera is old, my iPod is old (though that's charging behind my drumset), and I have a coffee heater plugged in. ;p

    I think I've heard of that somewhere.... however I honestly wouldn't suggest it, because in the unfortunate situation where you/someone/some animal accidentally hits it somehow and knocks it all over your computer.... x_x
