The box was in remarkably good condition.  Slight discoloring around the corners where it was dragged.  The packaging inside wasn't as good as everybody says.  It certainly would not withstand a disgrunted UPS employee(but i dont know what would :)
 
Props to DHL for keeping the package in great condition.
 
Straight out of the box it runs great, super fast.  Had to install the mouse/keyboard I ordered with them which made me super impatient( my own downfall)
 
The logitech G15 keyboard and G7 mouse are amazing.  Completely amazing :)
 
TF2 looks amazing completely maxed out with 200 FPS... its so good. 
 
 
Pictures are a few posts down.

How's the wiring job? When I opened the box and looked in through the side-panel, I was kinda shocked that there were almost no visible wires! lol DS did an outstanding job with that!

NICE! I'd say I agree that it rocks Wink
Heh, I like the fact that in the first pic, the monitor is showing the DSO forums hahaha
So you're getting 200 FPS in TF2 with that? :O Sweet! I can't wait till I get to try out Crysis, HL2, TF2, etc. on my rig! I don't have a router yet and so unfortunately I haven't been able to get all my Steam games yet Unhappy But when I do get it, I challenge you to some WC3 TFT and TF2 Tongue

Awright sweet! Like I said, I don't have my router yet but as soon as I do get it and I re-DL Steam, I'll add you! Smile

Great! Hahaha no man of course not... I much prefer to scream the expletives into the mic! Hahahah jk jk jk nah man I play for the fun! Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of ppl these days get waaay too caught up in the competitive side of it all and forget why we play videogames in the first place... to have fun! So yeah it'll be great to get some games going with all you guys here at the DSO forums! I really like the community here Big%20smile

Hahaha ohh ok gotcha.

Hey Solo
Grats on your new baby.  Glad it's rockn' the way you want.
Is that a USB wireless adapter sitting on top of your rig? and if it is, how do find it working?
Happy gaming
Have Fun,   George

Its a battery charger/USB port for the Logitech G7 Mouse.  Comes with a spare battery, so if one runs out you can pop in a new one in less than 2 seconds :)

Every time I see that Ultra case I think we should offer the ability to grab two sets of cathode lights. There was an ultra case here once where the customer had two red lights at the top and two blue at the bottom. Looked incredible! Then again, I'm a superman fan. So I'm big on the red and blue. Great looking comp though! And 200FPS in TF2 is very impressive! Hardest thing about this job is the temptation to "compete with the Jones'"

Since I have 2 8800 GT's you guys think i should buy a couple more fans to toss in?  Everybody says they are really hot.
