    Ok i've got to the stage that ive punched my monitor and almost broken a knuckle (luckily i was using a CRT and didn't break it), broken several mice, keyboards and speakers, and wrote a virus to give to myself (that's how annoyed i got at my PC)

    This is all because my PC sucks. No replies saying get a mac, i'm going to use my next pc mainly for gaming, graphic and web design, a bit of film editing, music, work, IM and other stuff i care not to mention

    This brings me onto my project: Operation InnoGame

    I am going to build an awesome PC that not only looks kickass, but is high spec too.

    Ideas so far:

    - Black and Blue. I would like a gloss black finish inside and out, with blue lights (and possibly UV).

    - Hardware:
    Not sure on mobo.
    Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 2 X 3ghz
    Radeon 4850
    4GB of RAM with low latency (black dragon)
    500GB hard drive, with a partition of 50gb so i can dual boot XP and OSX

    5.1 Surround Sound
    Logitech G5 mouse
    " G15 Keyboard
    Power PC and Cooling Silencer 500w power supply
    Ethernet (im fed up of the rubbish wi-fi of my house)

    - Cable Management. I want this PC to look sleek and tidy. At the moment my hands and feet and tripping over all sorts of cables.

    - Possibly with a remote control function. Then again, i can always use VNC and my ipod

    - No external hard drive. Too slow atm. GRR!

    - Some awesome graphics etched (i cant think of another word) into the side panel.



    Future updates of this project will include:
    Final Decisions
    Pictures
    The story of the entire thing! (i know it doesn't sound exciting, but it will be

    Any failures! (there will be lots)

    Any comments/ideas/suggestions etc?

    I hope one of the stories involves electrocution... that would be awesome.

    Try nailing your power supply to the wall!

    Definitely more RAM. Dual video cards would be nice too.

    I would suggest wifi though. Enthernet is good but it is always good to have multiple capabilities.
