Thumbs up Semper Fi from Okinawa, Japan
Hello from Okinawa, Japan. I'm a US Marine currently stationed here in southeast Asia. I've always been an active gamer. I used to be solely a PC gamer, but I got a 80gb PS3 about a year ago and have been loving it ever since. I also own an ice silver PSP and a blood red DS.

Currently building my gaming PC, as my old one is in the States and also getting a little long in tooth. How it's looking out to be is as follows (Parts with asterisks next to them have been ordered/already assembled):

Case: APEVIA X-QPACK2-CM/500 Black/Camouflage Aluminum Body
Motherboard:
Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H
CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition
RAM: 4GB G.Skill DDR2-1066 (F2-8500CLD-4GBPI)
Video: Onboard ATi Radeon HD 3200. Will be upgraded to a Radeon HD 44850/4870 or maybe the 4870x2 when it comes out. We'll see.
HD: For now a 320GB Hitachi DeskStar SATAII drive. I will be upgrading to a Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB 10,000rpm SATAII drive for the system drive and a 1TB Western Digital "green" drive for storage.
Other: I'm going to be throwing a Blu-Ray drive, and a Blu-Ray burner/HD-DVD read combo drive in there, too. Also looking at a Hauppage 1800 HD TV tuner card, and also a Creative Labs Soundblaster X-Fi Platinum Pro for sound and audio production.

So uh, yeah.

Cheers!

I try to keep my opinions of certain topics to myself, both as a professional and personal courtesy. I tend to allow my actions speak for themselves - if you're paying attention, you'll know how I feel soon enough.

Anywho, thanks all. I'm already meeting new gamers to hang with, so this is all really cool.
