Good choice selecting the G19 keyboard :) I'm currently using the G15 and its great gives me live RSS feed, computer performance, countdown, and a whole lot more options to do with gaming and what not, plus the software that comes with it is great. oh and the illuminated keys is the icing on the cake :geek:

I haven't bought a new desktop in 6 years, i want the best of the best :)

Well i bought it!
Should be coming in a few weeks :D

And actually i went with the regular lightning that has only 1.5 gb of ram insted of the 3, because for my monitor the max res is 1920 x 1080 and on comparision reviews the extreme edition only gets about 1 fps more on average :P If i had a 2560 x 1600 res monitor then i would see a much better fps increase.

As of yesterday, it is now fully assembled and it is one big motherfucker :D

It's my cleanest build by far, removed the back panel and there is room behind the mb to store all the cables, looks really clean and badass.

haven't started much gaming yet, but tested some games, fucking blown away, i came in my pants when i put it all together and it booted up the first time no problem :)
