    Got all my HTPC gear in the mail today: SSD, PSU, Graphics Card, Remote Keyboard/Mouse and a couple of WD 2TB Greens.

    That's going into my Fractal R4 with an Asus 775 board, Q9550 and 8 gigs of ram.

    I'm pretty excited and scared this is my first HTPC and I know there's going to be a lot of fiddling around with software, tweaking and problem solving :uhoh:

    Well, at least you didn't embezzle money from anywhere to buy that stuff. That would have been worse.

    Seeing as how the Apple website has changed their shipping dates from 1 week to 2 weeks from release date I decided to walk into my local Apple store to see about doing a preorder for the new iPod Touch 5th gen, and got a pleasant surprise: they were selling it 4 days early! Unfortunately for me though, no red. The sales guy mentioned they'd be getting a new shipment tomorrow (err.. today) of new colours, but I just couldn't wait to find out (could come back, and find it's sold out). Soooo....

    [​IMG]

    I got the white on silver. My issue is that it blends in too much.. the silver trim that is, on the white (the trim is shiny on all the units, not matte like the back), which is why I wanted the red in the first place... but 2 weeks wait? No thanks (I already have a buyer for my 4th gen). So, I figured I'd check back tomorrow to see if they have any of the red, because as you can see in the attached picture it's more... striking. If not, maybe the blue, but in person it's kinda light coloured.. like the old flat 2nd gen nano blue.

    Any thoughts? Should I keep the silver, or try for the red or blue?

    Edit: edited post as I picked the red.

    The red certainly looks better, but perhaps the color will also reveal its scuffs and scratches even better though? I'm readily assuming they don't manufacture these with higher material specs than the phone.

    Hmm.. hadn't thought of that. Might be a good idea to keep the silver then? It should be silver underneath the colour, so I'd assume scuffs on the white & silver shouldn't be too noticeable if it does happen. Something to think about.

    That aside, as soon as the cases start coming out it'll be going in one asap (preferably a good slider, or even the Otterbox Commuter or Reflex). Biggest problem is finding stuff for it right now since it's not supposed to even be out until the 15th, which is also weird as you usually see accessories come out before the iDevices, just not in this case. Can't even find a screen protector for it.

    My TV stand setup is nearly complete. I'm just waiting on the cable company to set me up with Cable and Internet so I can finish this off. But, here's what I have so far. Most of the wires are in the spine so they're out of sight. the only ones that are visible are tied up as nearly as possible, and the ones just floating around are waiting on my cable company to come in to be setup. I'll take a new picture when they get me all setup.

    Part of the reason i bought a Iphone 4s earlier this yer were to cut down on my devices when ever i went out..

    A) A decent enough camera for my use..
    B) holds the music i like that i can hook up to my car sterio,Even though i do have a CD Player i prefer the Iphone hooked up to the AUX mode..
    C) A phone
    D) I have a Free Sat Nav app that actually works very well.


    But thats for my preffereance....

    Out of the choices of color i would stick to white on silver,I simply do not like the other colors available...

    I have a Aluminium Case on the rear of my 4s and that is starting to show damage over the months... But the Glass screen does not have a single mark...
