    That is so sweet Phant - can we get some specs? If it's a customized case can we get pics?

    I guess it's time for me to show the world my desktop again, so here it is:

    Notice the nice NVIDIA HQ background, you can complain to me later ;) .

    A few people say, mainly DigitAlex and Nodsu, that I have too many shortcuts; but I like them, always there when I need them :) .

    Here you can see my proudly used 53.4GB on my single partition!

    [​IMG]
    I can just tell everyone loved that :haha: , but I can't be bothered to have more partitions without more than one OS, which I don't want at the moment.

    So, tell me what you think :D .

    Do what I do, and put a folder on your desktop labeled 'Applications' or 'Games'. Then put all your shortcuts in there.

    Makes your desktop look alot nicer :)

    Also noticed you have a Sony computer. Why not make your own. Its tons cheaper doing it that way, and kinda fun. You get to have exactly what you want :cool:

    BTW, love the icons, think you could e-mail them to me?
    agissi_ut@hotmail.com - Thanks
