    What is it? It looks like an NZXT Tempest, but I don't think it is.

    As for me I'm currently using:
    AMD Phenom 9850 BE
    1x2GB GEIL (yes, that's the actual name) Black Dragon PC2-8500 @800MHz CAS5 (my other module died recently)
    DFI Lanparty DK 790FX-B M2RSH
    AMD/ATI Powercolor 4870 1GB
    650W Coolermaster Modular Truepower (older design)
    Antec 300 (noisy little thing but does a good job otherwise)

    Worst thing about a wheel is where to put it when you aren't using it.. :-|

    Haven't used mine since last year I think, maybe once this year. Using a crappy half broken chair that isn't good for racing, since my past 2 chairs are completely broken! :(

    I just set it on the floor in front of the set of drawers, with the pedals & power unplugged. I can leave those cables next to my keyboard when I'm not using them and they don't get in the way.

    Been considering it! Since we have a Lexus I'd love to find an old leather seat from an LS400. Saw some Rover half leathers that looked pretty nice too.

    desktop2.jpg

    i5 2500k (auto over-clock)
    16Gb Corsair RAM
    Asus Mobo

    GTX275 Nvidia GFX

    128Gb C300 SSD for windows
    80GB Vertex3 SSD for swap files/scratch stuff
    2Tb SpinPoint thingy drive for work/stuff
    300Gb drive for my 'inbox' (before it goes into organised places)

    Apple Keyboard
    G500 mouse
    G25 wheel
    Bamboo tablet

    LP2475W main screen
    U2410 secondary screen

    50mb power-line LAN to my router, connected to a 60mb up, 15mb down connection

    Case is an Coolermaster Stacker 2 (black) with as many 120mm fans used where possible to keep noise down... with a big 800W PSU from Corsair that cost a small fortune.


    Seems to do everything I want it to these days, no feelings I want to upgrade except stream-line my backup process and probably get more SSD's... only weak area for me is it struggles to get good FPS in Racer haha!

    Nice specs, do you have only the 2 case fans, and the CPU and GPU fans? I know besides the CPU and GPU fans my case has 3 fans, thinking I'm going to flip some of the fans around as well to try and make it suck its air in from the front more then anywhere.

    Well they must work as I've been monitoring my temperatures and all is coooool. ;) Now all I need is some new games to play. Suddenly rFactor looks very old compared to pCars. :p Was amazed how well GTA IV ran considering.. well.. GTA IV isn't exactly known for running well (bad optimisation etc).

    Compared to Saints Row 2, GTA IV was perfectly optimized. :p
    This is actually sad though because I paid for SR2 and got a steaming pile of disappointment. :(

    Anyway, good luck with the PC.
