    Hi all. I did this once before a long time ago (like 2 years, on a different user name :) ), so I thought it would be fun to do it again. So post all of your comps here! Here's mine:
    Mac Rig:
    Dual 867 G4
    768MB RAM
    GeForce4mx 32MB :eek:

    Custom built PC Gaming Rig on Water Cooling (don't hate :p , I'll be sure to be enjoying Doom 3 and Half Life 2 on this baby :D ):
    AMD Athlon XP-M @ 2.6GHz (overclocked)
    Asus A7N8X Deluxe 2.0
    Sapphire 9800Pro 128MB @ 412/345 (overclocked core/ram)
    1GB Corsair 3200 DDR RAM
    and I use the soundsticks on here too, yes they work just fine on the PC

    Monitor for both:
    NEC 1760v 17" LCD w/16ms pixel response time (great for games).

    So...Post away!

    edit: btw, if you guys want pics of my water cooling setup I'll try and post some. Sorry I just got it set up and I can't help but want to show it off :cool:

    No LEDs (it's a CCT) there, that's an optical illusion (i guess you could call it), a combination of a few things.
    the reflection off the speaker which i kept in the original position as opposed to most people who do something similar, they'll remove the speaker all together. And the speaker grill also does funny things and concentrates the light...
    and that was shot in the dark, so the exposure was a bit longer than normal, cause it isn't that bright IRL.
