I did, I swear I did. I just have no idea where it disappeared off to.
It's turned off by default for some reason ( I.E other users can't see it unless its filled in) I can see it now though all good

Nice system you have there, protip: don't hang around here to much you'll find your self wanting to spend a LOT of money on your rig

#### Phaewryn

LOL, well, I kinda just did, it's brand new. I've had it less than a week. XD

I bought the monitors separate, they came to about $400 with the shipping. .... and I got laid. by said boy. Ouch you got over charged for the system by quite a lot D: Unless it included both those monitors also? Even then it's still fairly expensive. #### pantherx12 .... and I got laid. by said boy. Well at-least there's something For your future reference for that price you could of got a quad core 4gb of ram and a current graphics card, + sound card since you were after a music pc : ]. #### Phaewryn He was pretty good. lol. I have a *thing* for geeks (and he is an ex-bf who I'm technically still in love with, so, you know, it was a precious thing to me). I'm not sure where the money went, really (I hope he had a good time with some of it). I kinda had$5000 of inheritance all at once, so I was just throwing it away on anything that suited my whim. Jacob said he'd build me a computer, I like him, I trust him, and I knew he'd deliver it PERSONALLY. *smirk* not a bad investment. I was thinking of a sound card, but if you read the specs for the sound on this board, it's really quite good. I'd have to buy a \$200 sound card to beat it. The graphics are great though, it's all I'll ever need, these infrared photographs I've become recently fascinated by look AMAZING on this system. Just stunningly beautiful. I needed better monitors for my art surfing for a long time, I didn't realize how badly until I got them and saw the difference. Check it out, I have a few saved in my favs at DA: http://phaewryn.deviantart.com/favourites/ I want colors like that... in my case. Vivid purples/lavenders/pinks/blues. *sigh* so pretty.

I found the same thing when I finally got a decent ( not even good!) monitor, I take some pictures myself and do a wee bit of video editing on my rig.

Very neat set up by the way, looked at the pictures you submitted on DA, looking down at my desk it makes me feel the need to clean somewhat.

#### Phaewryn

Keep in mind, I *did* clean the desk JUST to take those pics, it isn't nearly usually that clean, lol. Thanks though, I'm pretty happy with it. These monitors got terrible reviews everywhere because they have a horrible stand which is unstable... so I VELCROed them to my wall. XD
I even drew up the plan in case anyone else wanted to snag a pair when TG had em on sale.

XD

Lol, Velcro! I'd love to see a good pic of that setup

Oh and welcome to TPU

Oh, but just ask, and ye shall receive. Give me 10 minutes, it's a slow process because my FTP seems to be down so I am having to host off my facebook.

Does this belong in ghetto mods? lol! I'm fairly confident that if you could find a low-profile cable that didn't stick out so far to run into it, you could ENTIRELY mount these monitors with JUST velcro (no shelf at all). They are really light. I just wanted to be extra safe because I have 3 insanely stupid cats. I wish I could have trusted it that way, because these are sexy sexy monitors, if they were just STUCK to the wall, it would look so nice and modern. Then, I got to thinking, I have gamer friends who pack up their system and monitor and go places with it. They never seem to have a good way to package it up. If you got one of these monitors in a smaller size, smaller than the side of your tower case... you could put a strip of velcro around the FRONT outside rim of this monitor, and on the back too, then on the side of the tower case. Then, you could velcro the monitor to the side of the case face-in for travel, and you could carry the whole thing by just the tower handle, then, when you got on location, just rip it off, flip it over, and stick it to the side of the case face out, use the case as a monitor stand. It'd be so simple. You could even velcro the keyboard to the other side of the case, lol, then all you'd need would be an open bay slot to add a drawer to hold the cables in the tower for travel. I mean, they have cup holders, why not a cord drawer? I have way too many ideas. Like, have you heard that some budget airlines are now discussing offering standing-only tickets. It's like, in the subway, you get a hand-hold ring to hang on. So, I thought, if this catches on, standing only flights, the best thing to do NOW would be do design a nylon harness that had a hook on top, that you wore like a rock climbing harness, but that you could hook to your little standing only handhold, and then... SIT in your own personal "flight swing". XD

Cyber goggles! Yep, I am a bit of a party-girl. Well, if I ever leave my room. I prefer "private parties" in my room. I will have you know, I have a fully balanced diet within 3 feet of my face at all times. Kashi granola bars, poptarts, bananas, green smoothies, the occasional cup of ramen, beer, and coffee. Who needs anything else?

So the GTX 460 killed my PSU. Wonderful. Kinda crazy since I ran a 5770 and a 5850 on that PSU. Damn NVIDIA and your power hungry cards!!! Oh I'm kidding...but it's true. Anyhoo, while I wait for a new PSU, I wedged the sucker in my main rig for PhysX.
