    I can't wait to try the SteamOS controller though. I have tried both the Xbox One and PS4 and I liked them equally.
    The one with the best OS support gets my support though.

    I am planning that, but I've had those floating around for ages haha. Naw, what's going on is that I've swapped tops around. Used to be one was full nickel and the other was copper+acrylic.

    Thought flipping it made for a very neat look on both.

    So I finally got around to cleaning up my desk and tried to fix some of the cable spaghetti under my table
    so now I can finally show my setup without feeling ashamed

    This is my pc specs:
    CPU: i5-2500k oc to 4.2
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
    RAM: 8GB of Corsair Vengeance memory 1600Mhz
    GPU: MSI GTX570
    Motherboard: Asus something Z68
    SSD: Samsung 840 256GB
    HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB
    PSU: Fractal Design Newton r2 600W (really nice and quiet)
    Case: Fractal Design R4 (love it)
    Fan controller: some scythe controller that i got in a bundle with the fans
    Fans: 4x Scythe Gentle Typhoons that are running at a smooth 800 RPM
    I built this pc back in august 2011, but i upgraded it with a new PSU new case and SSD over this summer.
    Im fairly happy with it, it might not be top of the line any longer but it does all I need it to do, so I can't really complain


    My peripherals are:
    - a Cooler Master Quickfire TK with blues, it feels like heaven to type on this i could never go back to membrane
    - a Logitech g600 for mmos and a g400 for FPS
    - a Samson C01U great microphone, I got the arm for it cheap in a bundle and I could not really find anything that could compete with it at the price
    and the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, these are my first real headphones and they do not dissapoint, they made me start to actually listen to and appreciate music they are driven by a Creative DAC that is lying on the floor.

    My next upgrade will definitely be either a Korean 27 inch monitor or the M&M stack from Schiit

    Sorry for the long post (hope I can get the Pictures to work)

    Very nice well-rounded build with good audio, glad to see someone with a nice taste in peripherals! They are all really good for the price.
    A 1440p 27" will be nice but I'm afraid a GTX570 is really going to struggle in the more graphics-heavy games at that resolution. I suppose your upgrade path will involve an R280X at some point, or maybe even a GTX780/R290X depending on how fierce the price-wars get between AMD and nVidia.
    Then you can get a better cooler to push that lil' i5 2500K to 4.6-4.8ghz to keep up with the increased GPU demand.

    But good lord what is going on with your wallpaper :S

    I mostly play Indie games and Old games (think KoTOR or Rome total war) so i don't really need a new GPU yet :P might get one when the next generation gets released

    Whats wrong with the wallpaper? :P

    I mean generation GTX8xx or Rx 3xx

    Ah well, atleast it will be worth it. Pretty excited how much of a difference that die mounting will make though.

    holy crap this took way more time then expected but everything did go pretty smooth. (with the exception of minor leak @sli connector , hence the white stuff > velcro ftw)
    must say the clear tubing and nickel/black theme worked out pretty damm good looking compared to what i had in mind.
