Im up for game anytime buddy. im not very good but we can die with honor lol
Like for my ram, yeah im looking at
Dominator® GT with DHX Pro Connector — 1.5V 4x8gb Quad Channel DDR3 Memory Kit um yeah like i really need quad channel and 32gbs worth redface.gif
however this will probably change, i just started research on memory soooooooooooooooooooooooo

Go for the 4x8. Won't hurt anything. No one brags here. Be proud of your creation. I am never envious of anyone's build. I come to this site to learn and to marvel at some great systems. And your system will soon be one to marvel. Looking forward to it. Oh and yes, this IS a sickness. I tell the wife that but she just says, "Well your ass better be making an appointment. " rolleyes.gif Oh and to stay on topic, let me add:

TROOPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
700

I agree... Go for the sky. Its like when I played pool. I never played good unless I was up against a better opponent. It makes me Play better. Keep it up. Never Slow down for us. We will keep up. We will Holler if we need you to double back.

I was thinking you were dead set on the usb option, so didn't mention the 12v wall wart. Which, if you aren't wiring it into a computer is the only other way than a battery to do it.

But yes, slice the end off the wall wart, solder pos to pos and neg to neg with a switch of whichever kind you like in the middle on one line or the other and you are rocking. I was thinking you wanted the convenience of the lights powering up with the tv at the same time, thus the usb. The good thing about a separate power is that you can turn the lights off and sit in a dark room for a movie.

I'll be carrying wall warts eventually, but not now. Before you hit a retailer, slum around a thrift store or yard sale for a wall wart. Pay a dollar instead of $10. You probably have one on hand, laying around from a defunct device! Old cd player, walkman, even an old external IDE case.

You would be looking for 9-12v DC output and ~500mA (or more) should be more than enough for ya. 9v-12v AC output works, but there is a subliminal flicker going on as the Alternating Current alternates its current. Its most obvious on video as the flicker is out of sync with the video frame rate. Look for DC output.

For switches, you can find motion switches, photo-voltaic so they go on when it gets dark, remote switches, and the good old fashioned on/off rocker or toggle or flip switches. Heck, plug it into one of those Clap-On Clap-Off switches! Imagination is the limit at that point. Or forget the switch and plug it into a power strip and use that switch to turn it on and off. Lots of possibilities.

Boomstick, i have a power strip made by monster. it has a selected area on it, so when i turn my TV off everything in that strip shuts of completely. and when the TV is turned on. well it all comes on. and whats cool is you can choose what you want to come on and off with the TV. it also has permanent power sockets.

example

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Monster+-+PowerCenter+8-Outlet+Surge+Protector/9812645.p?id=1218177897445&skuId=9812645&st=monster%20surge%20protectors&cp=1&lp=5

these are great power strips btw. worth the investment

EDIT: and the strip also detects power from the TV. you just hit your power button your remote and it switches everything on

What a profoundly useful idea! $80 is steep but I bet shopping/waiting on a sale will get a better price. I've got Computer 2 running my TV with a component stereo system. Turning it all on and off individually is a pain. This is my solution too!
