    Specs:
    AMD 64 3700+ @2.63ghz cooled by Zalman CNPS9500CU Led- Asus A8R-MVP - Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 Flashed to X850XT PE Cooled by Zalman VF700CU Led- 2048mb Dual Channel OCZ Platinum PC3200 2-3-2-5 - Dual 160gb Western digital SATA II Hard drives in Raid 0 - External 160gb Maxtor backup druve - OCZ Modstream 520 watt powersupply - Soundblaster X-Fi - Logitech Z5500 - Viewsonic N3752W (Primary) - Viewsonic VP930B (Secondary) - Logitech G7 Mouse - Logitech G15 Keyboard - Logitech G25 Steering Wheel

    Mods:
    I lined most of the inside of the case with plexiglass mirrors. Sleeved some cables with split loom. Added an extra fan between the PSU and DVD writers to act as a blow hole. Finally i rigged up some 12v LED lights to the case and mounted them along the wall behiend the desk

    I recently purchased a 37 inch widescreen display and a new Logitech G25 which makes for an amazing racing experience. As for the computer itself, it is still the same rig i posted before just relocated to my new temporary home (Collage Rez.)

    Very nice rig. Super tidy cable management. Your VDUs are insane. Crazy man! :)

    P.S. Please retake photo of primary. Shoot at small angle to get rid of flash.. then photoshop to square it again using perspective edit.

    It only runs at 1360x768 1080i but it dosent look bad with AA and AF cranked. For what it cost I can't complain since it looks a lot better then i was expecting.

    Lol an x850 wouldnt handle anything above 1080i... im surprised its handling that with full aa/af... did you try carbon on that :D? Hehe i'd love to go into a curve with full nitrous for a 40000point drift on a 36" screen "drool".

    GTR2 and GTL are my current favorites, also rFactor, Nascar Racing 2003, Live for Speed, Richard Burns Rally and Grand Prix Legends are really good aswell. The game I am playing in the screenshot is GTL and it is really sweet.

    those 37 inch viewsonics are great lcds. a lot of people dont seem to know about viewsonic but they used to be the best ever 10 years ago. still top 3 manufacturers.
