    I'm a bit of a fan boy so YES! but seriously the build quality is great, they are really comfy, and look fantastic. And the K90 has Cherry switches so it's pretty generic in that regard.

    My PC is something my friend threw together for me back in high school. It still runs some games well, but it's starting to lose out on anything super recent. I need to upgrade it (or straight up replace it) but I know nothing about how any of this stuff works x3 I need to go out there and learn what's good and cheap x3

    Someone stop me if I'm wrong but alas it seems that you can change everything. There is several new technologies available. What would be your exact use of this new configuration?

    Oh man this bump.

    I've decided that I will be building an HTPC. I have most of the core components settled or already bought. But I've got a few decisions to make: Case, OS, and NAS.

    For the case it's either the Corsair Air 240 or I'm going to be a badass and build something similar to these PCs:
    http://imgur.com/a/d5oR4/layout/blog
    http://imgur.com/a/x75U2/layout/blog
    But much, much more likely the air 240.
    Also I will need to decide on a general color scheme. My current PC is red mostly, and because of that I kinda want his little brother to be the same. The issue is that my mobo for my HTPC (which I bought over a year ago now) is mostly blue... This makes me want to give the mini me a blue scheme but just make a little switch to turn off any LEDs I choose to add.

    OS is only really an issue because in one sense I want to keep everything on the same platform (windows) but I'm sure that linux would allow me way more flexibility than windows at the cost of slightly easier modification. But that leads to the question of which distro? I am not using Ubuntu. I just can't stand it for some reason. I've fiddled with linux mint and fedora a bit and I do like both of them quite a lot. OR do I go with Steam OS for funnsies?
    Main functions I would want would be automatic restarts, and the ability to randomly select a video to play, through some script batch, bash, lua, python, autohotkey, whatever works.

    I also considering a NAS because I will eventually set myself up with one (even though I really don't need it much) so why not know. I was originally considering just putting a couple HDD's into the actual HTPC and use that as a home server/HTPC combo thingy. I would definitely want RAID 1 with 4-8TB. And I would just pack it full of various TV shows and porn and stuff. So I either want a 2 bay with 4TB drives or a 4 bay with 3-4 TB drives. I think just 4TB would be more than enough for what I need. I'm really just debating if getting a 4 bay now would be better for future expansion, even if I only use 2 bays for now.
    When it comes to the actual HDD it's a toss up between Seagate NAS, and WD Red. The pricing is exactly the same and they basically seem to be exactly the same, just a different sticker.
    And on top of all that I still need to choose the actual enclosure.
    One good thing about going with a NAS is that I could setup my HTPC first and then a couple weeks later setup the NAS. I do actually have a 3TB drive just sitting in my PC doing nothing so I could set that up for my HTPC for a butt load of local storage for no good reason other than as a temporary NAS thingy.

    So yeah, any recommendations or advice would be welcomed :)

    Woop! While my specs may seem bad to some of you, it works just fine for me! So I don't care! :p
    Components: (Everything stock)
    AMD FX-8320
    Nvidia GTX 980 (Non-Ti) EVGA Classified
    16GB Klevv Fit. (I wanted Urban, but price was too high, so I got Fit xD)
    1TB storage, 120gb OS, and 240gb for games. (HDD, SSD, SSD respectively)
    Edit: Forgot the PSU, 650 watt.. I believe EVGA.. I don't remember. It was cheap at the time.

    Peripherals:
    Main monitor: LG29UM58-P (1080p ultrawide, 29 inch)
    2nd monitor: Viewsonic VA2265Smh (1080p standard, portrait mode)
    Mouse: Logitech G602 (Wireless, endurance mode over 1K hrs battery! I f'en love it!)
    Keyboard: Azio MK Hue.. I will likely get a new one on black friday.
    Headphones: Avantree Audition Pro. (bluetooth, 40hr battery, AWESOME!)

    I also have an Oculus Rift, but I'm likely going to be selling it since I don't use it as much as I thought I would.
    I mainly play older games anyways, so I don't need great specs :p
