Yes, it's very nice. It's my first mechanical, and the back lighting is definitely what sold it for me.

Well I used the speakers for general use during the day time. I live in an apartment complex so anything more is useless. I do use the headphones a lot.

I'm a big fan of the AD900s, and Audio Technica in general. Amazing sound. I had to 'phat' mod them though because my ears are on the larger side and touch the cones without it (hurts after a while).

If you have a tiny head though I would probably avoid them as they'd slip around a bit.

This is my first foray into Eyefinity. Although it's not really what I expected, it's still really good! I went with it mainly for Sims though. If I was just playing general games on it I probably wouldn't do it. Just go a single large screen (27/30"). I can go back now though :P

It's not finished yet, as you can tell from the no graphics card, and it wont be staying where it is in this photo. :p
This was the only photo I got before my Seasonic 860w platinum blew up, so I have to send it back in and get a new one, in the meantime i'm using my old psu, so cabling is a mess so I wont take a new photo for now till I've fixed it up properly.

It's a 650D. :)

Love the BitFenix Alchemy LED Strips, they're so bright, in real life it looks/looked so much better then the photos.

Well, the first PSU blew up, replacement is in, along with my GTX580 (For the time being).

Result so far. Camera phone is terrible, Looks MUCH better IRL. Will replace the PCI-e Power connectors with my BitFenix Sleeved cables when I get a GTX680 as it takes two 6pin adapters and that's what I ordered, the 580 takes a 8pin and 6pin so it would look stupid with just one sleeved.

Bah, everywhere i've seen the 680's use 6pins! Grr.

I'll just order two 8pin BitFenix cables then when I order the graphics card, they're like $4 each or something.

Thanks for the tip though.

Are my eyes deceiving me, or is that a copy of the ultra awesome wayne gretzky's 3d hockey in the N64? if so, Play on and the winner is decided by most fights started than most points...
