Thanks... I am feeling a lot better now, but still not 100%. Let's just say that the room is a lot more complete than me right now...

As for the cables, I decided to just get all new CAT6 cables, and terminate them in the central location underneath the "L". The reason why I had to change them was that I originally had planned a central large switch, which meant longer cables and more difficult cable management.

I will post the pics a little later...

My room is basically done, just ran out of cash to finish it lol. And I was seriously about to buy that EXACT same desk the ther day at Staples, but it was $170 .

And how nice of you to build me a new rig. I really need an upgrade and thanks to you I'll have one lol.
I am about to post some pics tonight, of 98% done pics. Pretty much everything is done, minus the planned upgrades to the computers, and few minor things, which I don't even know yet.

I've just went through the whole thread and I'm still with my mouth open, amazed on things that people can achieve...
I mean, you do expect somebody from this forum to make a nice rig and OC it to some extreme levels... but when somebody is already good at PC stuff and goes into house modding and gets such a nice taste as well; no ugly colors or just all white/black...
I really like the colors you've chose in the end, the blues and the floor, while I was reading your story I was thinking "please take the white floor!!!"

Thank you for this! I'll keep looking over the next posts.

As for money, when you go one route, when you involve yourself in such a big project, finish it, it'll be a lot more rewarding even if you still need to spend a lot on it. Because the last thing you want is be deceived.

Wow... Thanks for reading the whole thread... I honestly didn't know that people would be so interested. To be honest with you guys, starting this thread has been a huge motivational tool for me to keep pushing to get it done. If I didn't have any followers in this thread, I would probably still be painting right about now...

Thanks so much.

UPDATE 4-1-10: BIG UPDATE!!!

First off, thanks everyone for your kind words of encouragement and inputs. I really feel like this project has come together very nicely, and I couldn't have done it without you guys pushing me forward.

This update pretty much showcases my office in it's 98% done form. I will do some artistic stuff later with some before and after shots, but for now, I feel like this office is just about complete.

Without further delay... I present to you, my office... (WARNING: A LOT OF PICS)

































That pretty covers the entire angles... As I mentioned, I still have few finishing touches here and there, but nothing that will deviate from what's here right now.

I am hoping to start upgrading by workstations by the end of next week.

Planned upgrades right now is...

1. Replace my E8400 E0 in my Hackintosh with Q9550 E0...

2. Replace PSU in Hackintosh with my new TQ850W...

3. Build a new i3 530 rig in a HTPC case.

4. Replace Corsair H50 in my 2nd i7 Rig with Thermalright VenX

5. Replace Asus P5K Deluxe in my 4.3Ghz E8400 E0 Rig (The one with 2x Acer Monitors) with Asus Maximus X48 Board...


As promised I will post the FINAL shots later, when I get the place dusted and ready for camera...

Thanks for watching guys!!!

Unfortunately, I am all work and no play... By the time I get around to do anything fun, I usually end up going out and playing some pool or golf... I would like to get back into playing some games again, but nothing like WoW... Never played RPGs... Takes too much time.
