glad you like, yea, it is the g15. But you can only gwt the orange/black one now. It lights up orange and has less macro keys. But its old, i have 2 monitors now and added a thing or 2 to the case.

Must say though, i dig your speakers and the three towers.

I had this for a while but I don't think I have posted a pic of it yet, so here you go. The colour you see in the case is blue but for some reason when i take a photo it turns into that horrible purple colour. Do you like the Black light?
