    Anyways, I don't really need to post pics.
    I have a 1280x1024 desktop cluttered with icons, and default hammer layout.
    All in one big CRT.

    And the fourth for me!

    Seriously though, my desk looks like crap right now, so I'd rather not take a picture. If I get around to tidying it up reasonably, I will.

    Also, I think I must be the only human in the world who does not keep track of their computer's specs. It's a "gaming laptop", basically.

    My power supply is making a mysterious ticking noise! It might break down anytime, so I'm only using my crappy laptop at the moment. D: It's bad practice anyway to equip a system that demands at least 750W with a cheap 520W power supply. So, I'll be ordering a new 1100W Cooler Master power supply tomorrow, so I can upgrade to a nice SLI setup and connect some additional hard drives in the future. (thank god I don't pay the electricity bills)

    7GB Ram o_O, that's kinda much if you compare it to your other specs.
    And where's your startmenu-bar? D:

    If I had 7GB of RAM I would make the switch to 64-bit as quickly as possible. :O
