Well I ended up with a very nice 17.3 MSI Dragon series. I seriously looked at Asus books but MSI offered much more bang for the buck. So far very happy. Thanks for the advice.

What LED lighting do you guys recommend? I remember seeing a link to a hobbyist LED site but I forgot to save the link. Also, are there any special ambient lighting LEDs (for behind the monitor) that anyone recommends or does the same LED strip lighting on a 12V DC adapter work as well?

Also, is EL wire superior to LED lighting?

For LED lighting, I recommend the NZXT HUE RGB LED controller IF you have an available 5.25" bay. It's a pretty neat strip of LEDs that can change to any color, brightness, or mode that you want.

For ambient lighting behind the monitors, I highly recommend cyborg gaming lights. They can do any cool things with programs and plug-ins, but the best part about these is that they work with in-game lighting when playing games. I know that there are other brands out there that also include fans and rumble pads for your desk, but in my opinion that's getting a bit too crazy. I already have quite a bit on my desk as it is.

As for your question on if EL wire is superior to LED lighting, they are two different types of lighting completely. Think of LED lights being like the light bulb in a room. Turn it on, the whole room lights up. Now think of EL wire as like a lightning bug at night. It's bright and gets your attention, but it doesn't light up the whole room.
EL wire is pretty much just for the look of bright, colored wires designed too draw in attention to areas of your case. They don't really light up the whole thing.

I used both: 1 LED strip that's 2 meters long to light up the inside (one was enough) and 6 strands of EL wire to draw the attention to the front, top, and side window of my case.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just Fan LEDs ON
Just Fan LEDs ON.

Agreed. Even my Pentium is under water.

I also don't like large sinks because of the stress on the motherboard.

I would wager that the majority of OCN members are on air.
But that aside I have never done h2o but I am considering getting wet on my next build. It's just so dang expensive!
Can it be done effectively on a budget?
I wouldn't waste my time with closed loop....
