This sums it up. When I am in my 30's I hope to have my own house with a setup like this. Very Nice!

You must be from Middle or East TN like Nashville because no one in the Western part would be smart enough to set up something that nice
LOL... That's funny. My wife and I lived in Memphis (Well, she did while we were married going to school in UTHS) near the Target House area in Midtown. I remember equipping her with pepper sprays and small pistol before she left, making her look like Lara Croft. Memphis is a funny town... Loved the food, still miss the food, I go back every now and then just for the food, but you never know when you are in a safe area or murder prone area. Thank God that in the 4 years she was there, not even a handbag snatch happened, but we came close a few times to real live crime action drama... And then you drive a bit down on Poplar, and before you know it, it's like you are in a whole another city. Good times...

Those chairs are from Ikea I got couple of years back. I got them on sale for like $50 a pop with the cushions, but they are normally around twice that. I am changing them out for a more traditional seating like a loveseat, but just haven't found a right combo between comfort and looks yet.

Those pics are the original pics before couple of updates, but yes, these will game when you need them to. As much as I am ashamed to say though, they have not gamed in awhile, and probably will be either upgraded or replaced even before a single chance to flex their muscles in a gaming environment.

Thanks! Take it from me though... Dunno how close you are to your thirties, but as cliche and oversaid as this may sound, thing change all of the sudden when you hit 30s... It's not a milestone you should look forward to by any means.

Just wondering, sense you have a sweet mancave that the wife approved of and you mentioned earlier that your buisness has picked up, do you own a hot car?

LOL... I used to drive a 2003 Infiniti G35 Coupe, with about $10000 worth of upgrades including VOLK TE37 19" Rims, Stillen Cat Back Exhaust, Stillen Racing Cat Converter, AEM CAI, Custom Intake Plenum, Custom ECU Program, NISMO Coil Overs, and to top it all off, a 150Shot ZEX Nitrous Kit with dual tanks. I also did a full custom fiberglass sub install with JL Audio W7 12" Sub and JL Audio 500W Monoblock amp, with full Dynomat treatment all over the car. However, I traded it in 2007 for a Infiniti M45 with Sports Package because I needed a more of a sensible car. Last year in July, I traded the car in for a 2010 Hyundai Genesis 4.6L. My wife thought I was crazy trading in a Infiniti M45 for a Hyundai, but she agrees with me now that it's by far the best car I have driven to date.

I am assuming the "white" case you are referring to is my HTPC (One next to the speakers) and it's actually "silver" CoolerMaster Stacker. I got it during CoolerMaster's annual sale of their BStock items with free shipping couple of years back. Wire management is PITA, but you are right, it's a beast. For some odd reason, it feels much roomier in there than my HAF-X, when dimensions of the HAFX is actually a bit bigger. Some cases I plan to keep for a LOOONG time, and this is one of them, along with my Antec 1200... I dunno why, but I am really attached to these two cases. My new favorite case however is that beastly LianLi case I call my "Server"... Once again, wire management is PITA, and ventilation could be better, but I love that thing...

One thing is for sure, you will single-handedly keep Windex in business with all that glass

Few more additions and updates coming to you a bit later... I might also redo the layout of this thread for better organization as well... Stay tuned everyone.
