As long as its one of the newer mice.
Its all preferance.
I infact LOVE my G5 and chose it over the MX series or the G7 or the copperhead. And I actually went to Futureshop and tried each one for a few minutes each so I got a first hand review on each.

ups lost my shipment somehow, with my dvdrw, psu, mouse, keyboard, ram. I talked to newegg friday, and they're going to refund, so i can reorder the stuff. ugh.

Ah well, nothing is going in til i'm done modding anyway. Been looking at plasma disks, but so far they all either don't say what the voltage is, or they're 6v. I don't know enough about electronics really. Might have to talk to the local radio shack and see about a 12v to 6v transformer i suppose.

Still trying to come up with more ideas. Hopefully everything will turn out nice

Thanks. I love the case already. lol

I considered getting the aluminum version, but several reviews i read noted that it felt rather flimsy. Looking now at how huge this case is, i don't think that would be a good thing.

Well, my package showed up, so i'm happy again. Went and picked up my mirror piece today, and some of those nice BEIFA uv gel pens at the local Target. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

As for some plans, i decided if the price is right, i'm going to go with powdercoating. Checking out dragonmodz.com kinda helped me decide, with their nice anodized screws and rivets. I'm calling the bike shop that i normally deal with tomorrow, and see who they use and try to get a quote. If it's decent, tomorrow i'll be drilling rivets!

Pics to come!

Powdercoating is a go. Got a good quote from a local place, so i spent yesterday tearing apart the case screw by screw, and rivet by rivet. My poor case. lol

Here's some pics. Dropping off everything tomorrow, and should only be a couple days before it's ready to pick up!

and yes, that's my current setup. had to practice with the lumin on my old setup, in case something went wrong. didn't want to lose my brand new psu! lol. hence the reason i'm building a new rig and modding it. that thing is about 3 years old, and drives me crazy!

but the good news is the lumindisk works great. if anyone needs help with one, just look me up! was pretty easy once we had the components figured out.
