Gaming performance won't increase from 4GB to 8GB of RAM. So, unless you have a specific need for more RAM, money is probably spent better elsewhere.

An SSD is a significant upgrade. No doubt about it. 120GB is a good size. Plenty of room for the OS and a few games.
Thanks for the info. I'm reading through that thread right now.

I'm not trying to spend a large amount on the video card since the only game currently I play is BC2 (not as much since I've been busy) and attempting to play the BF3 Beta (having some issues with it tho) but other than that I'm doing basic internet usage/music.

I don't really need more RAM so I guess I could save the $65 there...

Damn decisions/choices!! argh

Maxwell,

Beautiful setup. Looks like something out of a movie set!

2 questions:

1) Where is the backlighting mounted?

2) Are you really able to keep that desk that clean? Really?

Thanks everybody!

@Muad Dib: The backlighting is Cold Cathodes connected into the computer PSU. They are mounted on the back of the monitors with double sided tape.To get the power from the PSU to the cathodes, I created a molex extension cord from an old broken power supply.

The desk does always stay this clean!! The only problem is finger prints on the glass, but there is never any clutter on it. I am an extreme neat freak. My whole room, bathroom, and car is spotless!

Here is a picture of the Cathodes mounted onto the monitors from a couple of months ago. The only difference should be the webcam and my new Touch Mouse.

Maxwell,

If it is not too much to ask: Where did you get the monitor stand/mount? Make/Model?

Thanks!

I absolutely love the clean wiring. And you can clearly see from the pictures of your monitor stand that you spent some time getting everything all laid out as nice as what you have. I try to keep my layout as clean as possible, but I'm not a fan of wireless keyboards and mice...so I always have visible cords from them. The backlighting seems nice too if that is your thing.
