That's pretty cool. I see you've the same Steel Series mouse I use. I'm amazed at their Mac driver support—even more mature than Razer's. I wish Corsair would follow suit with their drivers but those are horrible even on the Windows side.

I'm glad you asked that. I was wondering too. That is a very cool setup.

About 600€ with Nvidia GTX 970. Fan, cables, power plug, external power adapter.
Expensive, but having an external gfx card is very handy & cool. Nvidia GTX 970 GTX costs 270€ alone

He has both hands on the controller. Does the Collectors Edition come with an extra peripheral?

I would hope the guy already has the extra peripheral he needs at hand.

I asked Cortana to clear up this burning question for me. She tells me it is $641. and change for the setup in real money.

I'm kidding! Well, about the real money. It is $641. USD

Heh. Shift-4 for me is $ ... OSX language-loc settings I bet?

I feel for PC... everytime I want to type something nifty, like ™... I have to go google some crazy alt combo code to do with the numlock keypad.

Gotta be something with character encoding and the web browser... and IPB, dunno.

Seems to work for most of us when we quoted and typed it out.

Now this is an interesting number: EUR 700,00.  Maybe that should be a decimal point and not a comma.
