Well, I finally got my new GTX 280 installed about a week ago. I've bee super busy with flight school, though, so this is the first chance I've had to take some pics and get them posted. Even with the size of the 280, the Scout accommodated it very well. I also sleeved another power cable, seeing as though this card takes 2 cables. So here's the pics (sorry about the wait, Enigma, I got your PM):
And while I'm at it, here's a pano of my whole setup. I made the desk myself, along with the wallmount triple-screen bracket. I also have the laptop set up with an external keyboard, mouse, and monitor (rotated 90 degrees for easy forum and comic viewing). And for anyone who's wondering, on the left is my helmet from primary flight school, and the tie from my tie-cutting ceremony (after my first solo flight).
Overall, I'm pretty happy with everything, seems like I've been tweaking everything for like 2 years now. Only other thing I might do is make an LED back-lighting strip for the monitors. A standard florescent back-lighting setup is too thick to fit between the wall and monitor.
Oh, and BTW Enigma, I just noticed there's no O-6 rank on the front page. It goes straight from O-5 (commander) to O-7 (1 star admiral), any reason why? Just an observation
