I'm probably going to build a new gaming rig later this year, and so far the black/red Manta is in the lead for me. It's a bit big for mITX, but you have plenty of room for all-in-one watercooling solutions. Plus the case is sexy as hell.
The Phanteks is a nice-looking case, but research...
Mainly got the itch, plus I want a somewhat smaller case. That's why I'm going mATX. I'll look into 2x8GB instead.
How about the HIS iPower IceQ X² Turbo Boost Clock H280XQMT3G2M Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card?
Current rig is in my signature (Neptune). Looking to order these:

RAM: 4x4GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3-1600 Cas 7 1.5v
HSF: Noctua NH-D14
PSU: Corsair HX750i
GPU: MSI N760 TF 4GD5 (Twin Frozr GTX 760 4GB)
Plus a Samsung Pro 840...
The smaller, more PC-marketed Klipsch sets are tinny to me. I ditched my ProMedia years ago. AE blows any of those away.
And yes, these have decent lows, but you'll need a sub for any real punch. I have my A5 set on acoustic foam pads.
This is a typical price. I got the original A5s in 2008 for $300 directly from AE, and I often see discount codes knocking the new version down to $300.
But they are nice speakers. If you've never experienced mids before, you're in for a treat.
Since 2002 I've used the old Logitech MX keyboards. I had a wireless MX Duo, plus two wired versions, like this:
This is the only design I've ever liked. I've never had issues with key blocking, and I like the media keys and volume dial. The layout is spread out nicely. Are there any...
