    We thank you for the participation of that sub-discussion.
    If you wish to continue pursuing it, I advice the Chat thread, or post pictures of your (old) rigs with said graphics cards.

    I said I was going to post this nearly 6 months ago and just never got around to it. Cheers!

    I might dislike eVGA coolers, but there is no denying that that computer and those cards look really great.
    Not a fan of MMO-mice or Razer Bw-keyboards though. Or TVs. All things considered, still looks really great

    I didn't want to use the TV, but my old monitor crapped out on me and I had that lying around. Can't read anything that well on it hahha! I find myself using the buttons on the mouse to do things with twitch reactions like shadowstep and so I feel weird if I don't use a mouse like it.

    You should of course use what you want and what you like.
    I'm a picky elitist prick, that is probably not right about half the things I have decided for myself, but that's what works for me. Taste will always be taste, and the only one that should matter is your own.

    I wouldn't mind more internal shots. It manages to look good despite not being colour-coordinated at all, so well done.

    I could get more internal shots, but it would have to be tomorrow. Just took pictures for a "battlestation" post on our guild forums.

    and thanks!

    Glad you did at least post it rather than never! Looks pretty decent, I gotta say!

    I do love the Apple armrest.

    ^ This isn't the thread for that. Start a new thread along with answers to these questions in the build / upgrade help sub-forum.

    I've got everything for the build at home, was just wanting another person's perspective on the components I've gotten

    So you bought it all already... without asking us?

    I assure you, no one is going to tell you that you spent your money well, except on maybe the HDD, case, and monitor.

    Processor and motherboard are an ancient architecture, literally 4+ years old, I have no idea why you bought those, unless you got them used, then it would be a different scenario entirely.
    Power Supply is well over 200 watts overkill.

    Again though, I suggest making your own thread, as people come here to comment on fully-built rigs, not to tell someone their opinions on their purchase. This is a picture thread, not a Q&A, but we'd love to help you out in a separate thread.

    Man the battlestations!

    Finally came home from Dreamhack, I had hoped that Proshop & Post Greenland was quick enough to deliver my haswell parts, but that was not the case. (Paid $120 for shipping)

    My K701's & Snowball microphone has arrived from Thomann.de (Paid £8 for shipping, they came within 4 days), their customer service is seriously the best I've seen.



    Current setup:



    Yeah, that's a Shimian behind a $80 monitor from Samsung, I miss my 2560x1440 but my laptop won't drive it.

    Anyways, update on setup:

    Peripherals
    Headphones: AKG 701 & California Headphones Silverado's
    Microphone: Blue Snowball, haven't tried it yet
    Keyboard: CM Storm Quickfire Rapid with Cherry MX Red. Went from QPAD MK85 with Cherry MX Blues, My parents can actually sleep now.
    Mouse: Logitech G400s, got a refund of my G400 when it started acting jerky

    Laptop
    Clevo P150-EM laptop
    CPU: i7-3610QM
    GPU: GTX 670M
    RAM: 2x4GB 1600MHz Kingston
    SSD: 256GB Samsung 830 Series
    Externals HDD's: 4TB WD MyBook, 1TB MyPassport & 1TB Lacie, all 5400RPM

    ...

    That post, well, getting the email for that post, reading it, then seeing Sweetleader's reply gave me MASSIVE deja vu.

    x_x

    Good stuff though, hope you get Haxwall soon.

    Depends what you'd consider to be a lot.

    Paying a lot does typically get a more comfortable and glorious experience, though.

    Deltrus, I never realized you lived in IL. I just moved to Chicago from Atlanta earlier this year. We could totally hang out dude Also, I am a bit sour that IL does not get Yuengling... I have just about decided Goose Island 312, while very different, is almost as good. Hit me up with a PM the next time you are thinking about being in Chitown! I live in Lakeview/Wrigley area by Montrose beach.
