    Logitech Z-2300

    The bass is totally amazing for a ~$100 speaker system. 120W sub + 2x40W satellites = 200W total

    Interesting, I was thinking about getting those I just didnt notice them with the face masks on. I was gonna buy those and a nice sound card, and I am a bass-o-holic so I think those will fit me well.

    For the money, look at the Swan M10's.

    I haven't heard the M10's personally, but judging from the specs they simply don't have the same level of raw power that the Z-2300's have, particularly the bass. The Z-2300's are now around $80 on amazon so I'd say they're pretty much the best bang-for-buck 2.1 system around right now.

    My old (Pre-PrometheusCU) setup:
    [​IMG]

    Lian-Li PC-A60C 10th Anniversary #294 of 300
    Silverstone Strider 1200W Modular ATX
    AMD Phenom X4 9850 BE Quad Core AM2 2.5GHZ
    Corsair Dominator PC2-8500 5-5-5-15 8GB (4x2GB)
    ASUS AM2+ M3N-HT Deluxe Mempipe 3-way SLI
    2x EVGA E-geForce GTX 280 SSC 648MHZ 1024MB 2.322GHZ

    My temporary setup, before I upgradded the 9800GTXssc's to GTX280ssc's and also back when Prometheus was still up and running:

    Small, tiny desks... one thing I do not miss about dorm life. Looks like you made the most of it though.

    Haaa thanks... Only slight problem is that I don't have much space for my books. But honestly the desk isn't bad at all. It's modular so I can take apart sections and rearrange them.

    Just three items:
    1) How do you like the MX 5500 combo?
    2) What is and where did you get that mousepad?
    3) Very clean setup.

    That's a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS, not the f/4 version. They may look similar but they're entirely different beasts.

    1) Its nice.
    2) Ratpadz, of course!
    3) Thanks :)

    Nikon D300 and Nikon 35-70mm f/2.8.

    Intel E8500 @ 4.25ghz, 8gb OCZ Sli RAM, XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog are the important pieces. A bunch of HDs, Sony DVDrw, Microsoft HD DVD ($30!), Antec Sonata III case.
