My System Specs

Default

No pics yet, but my desktop is now sporting a 22" Samsung. :)

Took a long time for prices to come down where I could afford a widescreen large enough that it wasn't a step down from a 4:3 19".

Spent the whole afternoon/evening (and a good part of the early morning hours... :) ) playing oblivion and I have to say it's amazing!!!!!

Default New Case.


I originally posted my PC here:
http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...html#post83033

But since then the LCD on my Viper case died :^( and to replace the Viper I bought a Raidmax Smilodon. The Smilodon is a lot quieter than the Viper was.
Here are some pictures:

The yellow cable is actually on the inside and goes to my floppy drive.
What makes it look like it's outside I think is the reflection from the external harddrive case. Looks like a tidy but heavy duty right angle connector, as you say going to the video card. Just a photographic effect.

I'm not sure, but I thought he was referring to the first pic, on the right side of the case, those 2 black things.. right on the edge of the desk.

Those are caps that go on the ends of the speaker cable connections when they are unused. The caps are held onto the speaker cable with thin straps.

Cool now I see it...yeah its a combo of reflections and clear windows and yellow cables....If I told you how long I stared at that trying to figure out WTF it was it would be really embarassing...it was like some mesmerizing magic eye that I couldn't get.
