Boot drive is a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro, storage drive is a 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black. CPU/GPU are water cooled, though I kinda cheaped out on all of the water cooling parts since it was my first time not using air cooling. Waiting for Haswell to become available and then I'll grab a new laptop. Currently using a MB Pro, which is great for everything except for gaming. Will be keeping it around as my pr0nz machine though.

Favorite game to get serious about ATM is still The Witcher 2. Can get stupid difficult to the point of frustration though, so I haven't played much lately. Been playing the new Tomb Raider when I want fun and easy. Was pleasantly surprised with that one. And I'm slowly working my way through Bioshock Infinite's 1999 mode. Died for good about halfway through the first time and got so mad I abandoned it for months before I started again. Also still play Deus Ex and it's sequels fairly regularly. Love those games.
My friend went with 32GB of RAM as well for aesthetic reasons. His PC is going to look sick when he's finished putting it together. His specs are basically the same as yours. He won't bother with water cooling for another while. No game requires his components to be overclocked, so he doesn't need any extra coolant.

Deus Ex are some of my favourite games of all time, third only to Half-Life and Batman the Arkham series.

My PC won't run Bioshock Infinite and I don't want to ruin it by playing it on console. The same goes for Witcher, Borderlands, and Max Payne. I'm looking forward to playing Tomb Raider on my PS3 though.

Split up with Robyn today.
I recently instigated a relationship conclusion as well. I had finally met someone I liked a lot, someone who was smart and self-aware, but I couldn't handle it. It moved very quickly and I don't think we were right for each other in that deeply spirited way. I'm sorry about it all, Ben.

Cheers, Dan. Hope you're okay as well.

Nice. And yea, I love the Arkham games as well. Played through Arkham city two or three times in the last year. Looks killer with PhysX turned on. I don't need any over clock either, it's just fun. Micro Center just got the 4770k in today, priced at $280. Tempted to run over there and grab one for funsies.

EDIT: Oh, and,

Back in Richardson, and have better pics of the SLO, along with a reorganized mapz room. So in love with the SLO and 100B right now. Can pull some pretty nice cleans out of the SLO, surprisingly enough. Never bothered dicking around with that channel when playing others. This is also the first one without the depth control that I've played, and I don't miss it at all, at least through the 412. Will be keeping the SLO, 100B and THD, along with the Diezel 412 (for now) and the Splawn 212. Everything else goes.

2 out of my 3 girlfriends were softball players. They don't mind getting dirty, and not in a 'Hey let's go hiking' kind of way

**** I hate my neighbors. I swear they all get people around to do the their lawns before 8 just to annoy me.

That's okay though. I just happen to have a really loud guitar amp that I might play really loud today.

No, they actually probably showered more than I did. More in the 'I have no shame and all I do is hang out with other girls all day and we talk about sex and things to try out' kind of way. Plus being around girls all day means when they finally get you alone it's on like Donkey Kong.

Wait another 6 months or so.
Of course, she may just turn out to be Bi-Curious at some point.

Not yet. Dunno if I have the spare cash. Might try and get it out of the other half as an early birthday present.
