Nah, the PSU on mine glows blue, although you can't see it here because there's a 36 centimetre fan with obnoxious blue LEDs in here that whirs like a mofo and also glows blue. At least I can turn that off though, which is useful when I'm recording. I wish the case was less...boy racer-ish, but it was the cheapest I could find without an inbuilt PSU.

I had a crappy case until recently, CM690 FTW!

I'd be interested to see some specs from people as well.

Computer Specs?

Here's my Desktop [My MAIN computer, in my room]:
Windows XP
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 1.91Ghz
1.5GB RAM
80GB Hard Drive [with practically no free space, 1GB free ATM]
GFX: Nvidia Geforce FX 5500 [outdated, I know]

^Used to be much worse, but I upgraded RAM and GFX a few years ago.
But now I need to upgrade GFX [again] and HD. Maybe CPU too.
I would buy a new one but I don't want Vista on my gaming computer.

Laptop:
Windows Vista
"17" WXGA+ High Definition BrightView Widescreen (1440 x 900)"
2 GHz Intel Pentium dual core processor T3200
3GB RAM
160GB Hard Drive
Lightscribe Super Multi DVD Writer - I am yet to use this
And built-in wireless.

I think the other desktop computer downstairs is the same as the laptop, but I don't use that one.

Considering that around 5/6 years ago, my OLD computer had a 2GB hard drive and 90Mhz CPU, my main computer is still a powerhouse to me.

Here's mine:

Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty" 64bit
I run Windows XP in a virtual machine at all times
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX
6 GB RAM
ASUS Striker Extreme mobo
Intel C2D "Extreme" (2x2.9GHz)
Can't remember what the PSU is, though I know it's modular and displays wattage on an LCD screen (it's at 146 at the moment)
I've replaced the CPU fan too, but can't for the life of me remember what it was.

Whenever I try to go somewhere in firefox, I keep getting this error.

http://i29.tinypic.com/zhcj.jpg

It only started happening after I fixed this "fast browser search" malware that my sister got off of facebook.
I had to edit the about:config stuff...
Im not sure what happened, though.

I would appreciate any form of help

My Dell Inspiron broke.. It was under warranty but getting a refund has been taking a long time. Luckily it was paid for by credit card so they should hopefully be dealing with it.

Has anyone here ever managed to get a penny back off Dell? I'm so angry that a company as big as Dell can't provide a refund on a faulty product.

That site is terrible. The part selections are crap and overpriced.
