Besides power cables, the only cables I have at my desk are a vga and 2 stereo cables for a mic and speakers and it's still a mess down there.

Well, the easy answer is to buy a second brick.

Not when the bricks cost $80, that's for sure.

For the record, I don't care about cables, but many of the posted photos have visible thick layers of dust on everything. How you can let it progress to that state and not even care when taking a photo is beyond me.

I don't think anyone really invites company over and says "hay wanna watch me use the computer in my room??" So, if the user is the only person using it, and the user doesn't care about cleanliness, what's the point in spending time doing something utterly useless like dusting more than once a year?

In the unlikely event one does indeed secure a visit from a lady friend to visit one's personal Fortress of Solitude, cleanliness helps.

I don't want to be an rear end in a top hat, but I'm curious as to why "tower" on the right is so huge? What's inside it to justify a case that size? Or is it simply my morning-stupid mind inable to process the difference in size between the Dell box and that?

Buy more power cables. I have 4. 1 for the home office, 1 for my travel bag, 1 for work, 1 that's buried into the couch. gently caress carrying those things around.

To be more specific, lug the brick around all you like. Just make sure to get extra cords to snap into the brick. It's a lot easier to just snap your brick into the already plugged-in cord than it is to have to unravel something every time you move your computer between the 2-3 desks it has. Sure, it's not as convenient as having multiple bricks, but it won't cost you $80.

Also, the brick accepts standard figure-of-8 power cables that can be had for about 1 each, so there's no need to buy any Apple-specific item. Doesn't look as nice but who cares?

To be honest, I didn't realize it would be that big when I purchased it. It's actually quite nice for airflow. Keep in mind that my tower is also lifted from the ground. Nothing in it really justifies the size. It's a "gamer pc" if that means anything.

HOLY poo poo. I'm pretty sure I have a Dell 2900 server that has a smaller case than that. That's not a gamer pc case, it's a loving Transformer that's going to kill you in your sleep.

No, no, it has blue lights. It's an Autobot. It won't kill him. Maybe accidentally break stuff, though.

My name is Deckard Cain and I've come on out to greet ya, so sit your ass and listen or I'm gonna have to beat ya.

I used to have one of the older CoolerMaster Stackers (different than the ones in the thread). It was huge, but all the components ran very cool on air (as opposed to running somewhat hot like they do in my newer, more normal sized case). It was a dream to work in, but I took it to a few LAN parties and it was a loving pain in the rear end. Casters helped a little bit, but I still had to carry it up stairs. I actually rode the thing down the sidewalk one time when I had the casters and amazingly, I didn't manage to break anything.

Never again will I own a case that huge though, it's just too much of a pain when you have to move it.

I have a modular psu that has lights when things are plugged into it. I also - for whatever reason - have two pink/purple UV lights. The blue is the front fan and all the indicator lights.

While it was a good idea, I believe it was that you labeled a router, modem, wii, and monitor, which sorta started it all.

I guess since I took these for the purpose of bragging I might as well continue bragging.

I don't think I'm going to get around the fact that I'll need a receiver to get proper surround without cumbersome switching or software rerouting. This was supposed to be a desktop PC primarily, but it's mutating into more and more of a home theater.

Forget the other poo poo, I got arguably the most baller headphones on the planet and that's all that really matters.

Edit: I guess I better upload some labels.
