For the linux workstation to do 2D stuff I don't need anything more. They don't even need water cooling, but those blocks were on clearance from performance pc's for $10 so it's hard to resist. The gaming rig has tri 480's

I write water cooling and case reviews but you'll have to use google because I can't link them here thumb.gif

Interesting - what's a vertical mouse?

Idk about u, but I use a lot of macros when I program and draw... If u do as well I would look into either the g15 (i think this is the number) or the nostromo... They are majorly useful smile.gif

Yeah I hadn't bothered with macros because I assumed the software wouldn't work in linux, it would help, I try and use keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, but there is still a lot of pure mouse work

Google "Evoluent Vertical Mouse". smile.gif
I tried using one, it's damn comfy, but I hated the scroll wheel.

So what are you calling me a liar?

Also that's just a normal mouse that you flipped on it's side.

Seems that csm and juano beat me to it tongue.gif Vertical mouse is pretty much self-explanatory: It's a mouse that's standing vertical instead of horizontal. Most of them are made for peeps that work on computers for long periods of time. It's supposed to be a more "natural" position to your hand, thus reducing the stress. The one csm linked (evoluent) is a common one. My uncle uses the leftie version of the V4 and I hear it's great. Another mouse I've seen him use is the Logitech M570 trackman (I've had one too, dog ate it).
