^ Sounds like you already had hours of fun and a few sleepless nights with your new PC and he hasn't been delivered yet ;).

JH, I'll echo that. Just listening to all the stuff Gus just said he's going to be doing sounds exhausting and makes me feel like I need to go lie down somewhere and take a nap!

Thanks guys, and thanks again for all your help and advice. I must be aging because I have never been this diligent in spending money on a PC. I think that's a good thing. But...stressful. I should just be ecstatic that I can purchase this at all, especially now.

^ I do that to people.

The HP Omen arrived today, BTW. Waiting for the monitor, the keyboard and the mouse.

Assembling all the furniture and putting the rig together this weekend :)

Is that the sound of Gus “Ssquuueeeeeeeeeing” like a schoolgirl?
Insert witty comment here.

I await the delivery of the 34" Alienware monitor with giddy loin-moistening abandon. Should be here tomorrow.

That's awesome. I still haven't pulled the trigger. It's perhaps the one trigger in my life I've ever hesitated in pulling.

Unlike you to wait - are you still shopping around?

Having trouble settling for anything but the best, and the best is just a little more than I really want to spend.

My 27" monitor barely fits on my computer desk in NC.  What type of desk did you get?  Want to post a picture when you have it set up?
