    Wow.

    I found a keyboard that might fit on that desk:


    I kid, I kid :P but seriously, I feel bad! Save up a few bucks and buy a bigger desk :S

    jokes aside, something like K360 would fit.


    Had same kind of desk few years ago, actually it wasn't that bad

    Looking at the mousepad and by how far his G series keyboard goes over the edge, even that may just barely fit. Actually I can't think why such a desk would even be made...

    I'm pretty sure the K360 will fit, I had that keyboard for awhile until I swapped it out with a keyboard with a touchpad, it's very responsive even when you're far away.

    But I'm pretty sure we're going offtopic now :C

    A tad confusing build, isn't it? What's it used for exactly? What's that motherboard for? Was some of the parts picked for looks?

    Most enthusiast and or stylish gamers prefer looks along w/ performance. Just like cars our pc's are our hotrods.

    I think the question is more trying to ask: Why so many high-end components, but only a GTX 460. That's what's really coming across as glaring to me.

    Sounds like tetris had it lying around collecting dust (figuratively speaking ofc) so it saved them 150+ bucks for a new graphics card.

    No parts were chosen for its looks.
    The motherboard, he thought were extremely ugly. But it came with a floppy-connector, so that's why he wanted it. In difference to the ASRock Z77 Extreme6, which is to my knowledge the only other Z77 with internal floppy connector, this came with double-ethernet ports, something he wanted.

    He's not a gamer, he wants a quiet computer and he feels a computer without an internal floppy is either not a real computer or a notebook.
    He's taking part of GIMP, meaning he'll run his cores to near the 100% mark all the time.


    And you were correct in guessing of the reason for the GTX460. It was more powerful than what he had, it was more quiet, drew less power and it meant that I could snag the HD6900-series card he got for free from Sweclockers.

    Fine enough . I knew it wasn't picked at random, that's why I asked. It looked like kind of unlikely bunch of parts together which had to be chosen specificly for some purpose or else it'd be rather messy, makes sense?

    Oh surely, I would have accepted that as an explanation as well.
