  1. Darn nothing for me =( but a big thank you to OCC and all the companies for the opportunity and congrats to all the winners! Merry Christmas!
  2. Cool, thanks MercuryDoun for the tips! That build is actually for my twin brother, mine will be almost identical but I was lucky to win some 4 GB of RAM a couple months back so i'll have to stick with that. I'll be sure to change his to 8 GB though. As for the aftermarket cooling, I really do want to get something in that department but my mother is paying for the build as a rather large gift, so I want to make it as cheap as possible without spending on to many indulgences. I definitely plan to buy something in the future though with my own money!
  3. XD no pressure mate, so long as the mod goes well!
  4. haha too true. I love seeing nice loops when they've got coloured dye in them or w.e it is. Looks awesomely cool.
  5. Wow I've never seen so man welcomes in my life XD Thanks all for the kind greetings! @MercuryDoun, I've been planning this system for about 2 years now so it keeps changing. It's aimed at letting me game while still being cost affective. Currently I have planned: CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k Case: NZXT Phantom USB 3.0 Black PSU: Corsair HX-650 Power Supply Graphics card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti Overclocked 1GB RAM: Corsair CMP4GX3M2A1600C9 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD4 Motherboard HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST31000524AS. The full tower seems a bit over kill since im trying to aim for value, but I fell in love with it when i first saw it so it's my little indulgence.
  6. Nice man, very clean. I use to hate windows but I think they're growing on me now.
  7. Indeed where is the case XD As for the cats issue, try bagging it all or something mayb? Or if you have a large hard plastic container you could put it all in there
  8. I believe most reviewers hold Corsair PSU's in high esteem. Over here in australia they've been voted the peoples choice a number of times in the pc magazines. It might seem a bit overkill, but you might want to opt for a gold standard PSU if you can because less of the energy is converted to heat. I don't know if they're that easy to find for low wattage PSU's though.
  9. looking good man, are you going to try put rubber around the cable management holes?
  10. Definitely the phantom, it's larger, has usb 3.0 and has received great critical reception. Also if u don't like the colour schemes on the site, they recently released it in pink, as well as white with a red strip, or black with a green or orange strip
  11. I really love the burnout series though I lack a ps3 or pc system to run burnout paradise which I'd really love to play. I also play some NFS, though of late I think I'm finding the series to grow old, the last NFS that I played and really loved was NFS most wanted. I'd really love them to make a sequel to that. Other than those two series, I don't really play to many racing games.
  12. I'm still playing teh game in an attempt to get my HoM up to 50 (I know...no life XD) it does get quite stale from time to time, so i just change over to LoL or the wii for a little bit of a break if needed.
  13. I always use the default WASD, It works well, for fps it's close to the shift, tab keys etc should they be needed and with MMOs it's great because your right next to the 1,2,3,4 number keys etc so you can use your skills easily.
  14. I'm really looking forward to Borderlands 2. I loved the original where I played a Siren and thought it was heaps of fun. I just really hope they can come up with some way so that it has re playability which I think it really lacked in the original after finishing the 2nd play through. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the new gun designs for each company.
  15. I use to play dota but then moved onto League of legends last year. Am still playing it today and loving it for the most part. I do go back to dota to 2v2 with my twin brother every now and then, but I find the user interface, hotkeys and general function of the game rather irritating after playing LoL
