    Bought the R.A.T.7 yesterday for $109 already. Then today teh same store had the deal with all three for $139, so went back, or rather, my wife went back, and picked up the other two items for another $30, which seems liek a killer deal for mousepad and keyboard. My Lachesis finally died, so I had to buy a new mouse anyway.:shadedshu

    I love my R.A.T.7 and the mousepad that goes with it but i havent been able to afford the keyboard yet, would be nice to hear your thoughts on the keyboard.

    Look up. Look way up.
    The RAT7 is a good mouse once you get used to it....the steady button on the thumb rest comes in real handy for sniping situations. I bout mine for 89$ on sale at Canada Computers and have not regretted it one bit. Also being able to switch between 3 DPI programmable settings at the touch of a button right behind the mouse wheel helps a lot too.. I haven't even got into setting macros for it though.

    I probably won't ever use teh macro functions...I've had ketboards and other mice with the ability for years now, and have never used it.


    The keyboard...for full retail price, I think you are better investing in something like the Razer Mechanical, than this one...it cost me so little that how good it is doesn't matter to me...I've been using an Alienware keyboard that cost as much as all three of these things, so I really do not expect a lot out of the Cyborg board. It works, anyway, but it took three reboots before it started to work fully, and has been fine since. I do NOT like the spacebar, which stands a bit tall comapred to the other keys.

    The exciting thing for me out of all of it is the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. I didn't WANT an new mouse.

    That's a great deal! Congrats on the mouse! :rockout:

    Call it coincidence, but I also got my R.A.T. 9 today! Dell had it on sale for $109 with free shipping, dunno if you prefer the wired version, as both the 7 and the 9 are exactly the same mouse, might wanna check to see if Dell still has that deal going in case you wanna return the 7 and get the wireless version for the same price!

    I don't think they have such a killer deal on the mousepad and keyboard combo, you got a very good deal on the three items :toast:

    EDIT: I checked and Dell doesn't have the deal anymore; anyways, besides the fact that both mice are basically the same, you would've missed on that excellent keyboard and mouse pad combo, enjoy your new toys! :toast:

    Got myself another replacement motherboard today. My Biostar blew a ram slot somehow? anyhow time for pics

    The before...
    [​IMG]

    The new board... ONLY $30! (after rebate). I got the last one XD
    [​IMG]

    The after... cables are still a bit of a mess.
    [​IMG]

    Yep... that's an 8800GT... still. My WEI for ram went up from 5.5 to 7.4, and of course I now can use all 4GB of my ram rather than just 2GB

    I also got this for $4, my friend's comp doesn't have IDE ports and he's still using them for his optical drives, I need my usb adapter back lol.
    [​IMG]

    Also, I need to save on power a bit, so I swapped my 200w CRT for this nice 35w 17in ViewSonic... well ok its decent and kinda old.

    And some specs...

    Now to go back to watching Andromeda

    Love the board besides the fact that the bluetooth effects will not work. But, I'll start a thread on that in due time.


    Yeah, I'll have more up tonight or tomorrow.. Battery in the camera was going to die. Charging now.


    The 140 rad is Phobya G-Changer... It's a good rad..

    @kevin, nope. the board still works but not when you use the first slot. The board was just dirt cheap... it was $35 without a rebate... lol. This other would have been $50. The LSP seems to be doing fine. Handles the cpu and gpu fine, i don't think it'd go out on ram.

    @Jetster, yea i thought so haha. The camera doesn't do it justice though.

    Mine works fine, I use it all the time to transfer things to my phone :D.

    Are you aware you have to install the drivers for it that came on the disk?

    My current desk setup for my laptop.. just got the new Razer Mamba 4G from work for much cheaper than retail price, I'm very happy at the moment, just missing a beastly rig :(. Sorry for the grainy photo, these pics were taken from a tablet.

    nice

    @brandon, the other board was a Biostar A780L BIOSTAR A780L AM2+/AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Moth...

    the new one is in my specs... Ecs IC780M-A. its doing pretty well so far. ran all night with no issues. It doesnt like to boot with my phone plugged in though lol. it'll support a 6 core phenom and up to 32gb ddr2.. they had other boards there but this was the only one with 4 ram slots and a heat spreader on the VRMs for the cpu. I'll do some gaming when i get home to see how the ram holds up.

    New WC setup. The quad rad is a bit overkill but I got it for a good price.
