Looks good. Now i know why there a some many people supporting the forum :)
MacBook Pro 13.3" LED-Backlit Glossy, Intel "Penryn" Core 2 Duo T8700 - 2.53G, 8GB DDR3 1066, NVIDIA GForce 9400M 1280X800

I really like that case and the cable management is excellent! That system would deffinately entitle the owner to some braggin rights!!!
Good luck to all.
Thanks for the update. The GTX 285 is a powerful card and consumes less power so this is a very minor change, except that the monitor really sweetens the deal for those who don't have any kind of desktop setup.
Since I'm running off an older Toshiba laptop, this would be an awesome win!
I like the cabling too - Very very clean. They do good work.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
You're right! Didn't even see the cabling before it was mentioned. The airflow also looks great.
oh an extra 22" monitor never hurts!
Oh wow, the monitor more than makes up for the 295 to 285 switch. That's a great deal of extra value. And 16,200 3DMarks still walks all over what most of us have so no complaints. I think I prefer this case to the original, but both are cool looking so who knows.
Good luck fellows. Hopefully the winner sticks around.
Monitor and case upgrade, Crisis Causer; that Sniper Storm is a mucho sweeto midtower!
And the GeForce 285 is miles better than the card I have now, an ATi Radeon 3850 in an AGP 8x slot; I don't think anyone is going to complain about getting it!
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
wow if i don't win this i think i'll get a storm case for my next build ;-)
~~Dell Laptop , D520, Core2Duo @ 2.0Ghz undervolted to 1.0v
I know I'm not going to win, but I'll join anyways ;D
Wow! The system itself was good enough to get me to stop lurking and register, a monitor too? Very nice!
Wow the insides of that system is really cool, I didn't realize it was a liquid cooled cpu before these pics.
I don't think the video card downgrade will have that much effect when you put in a monitor and a upgraded case. All is forgiven, Hothardware :P
Nice case. Also that was very cool of them to throw in a 22" monitor. And the gtx 285 card is no slouch either.
I can live with these changes!
(...you know, as long as there's still a window...)

Wow nice case update, the video card change is ummm, Well it is still a good video card not like the 285 is any slouch for sure.
As I have posted a few times, I am currently planning to build a new system for a neighbor. For the CPU I have finally settled on an i7/860, is the i7/870 in this one is a very nice cpu. I settled on the 860 because he has a certain price point, and to get everything I wanted on his computer the 860 fits the bill. The case it was going to be in was nice but the Sniper is even better. Plus who could call adding a 22" monitor to the package is any kind of downgrade as well.
Thats a definite clem, I am running a 3870 myself in a PCI express 1 slot. As I have been talking about the system I am building for my neighbor, I wish I could build a new system for myself, but money is still to tight for that right now.
Looking good. Can't wait to see the victor. The 22" LCD is a really nice addition. No use in all that power on a old 15 CRT.
It's still a great prize! The monitor looks nice. If only it was open worldwide...

Wow I can really get updated, with a system like that. I have little money and I am a gamer so this system is perfect for me.
Which motherboard is in this?
Wow, looking good! Can't go wrong with a complete rig.
I think the system just got better. The new flat screen is a really nice touch.
Again, whomever is the winner of this game-eater system will be blessed.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
