You can get the keyboard and mouse for $24 to $32 online but hoping to get a deal from the rep next time around.

It sells for between $16 and $19 all the time. Most will try to sell for around $25. Given Ive been using the G series Logitech mice which are great thats high praise from me about this mouse.

Steam experience has been very good but they screwed up with Freespace 2. The icon they provide takes you to the steam launcher and then it oroceeds to tell you the game cant launch due to its location. Of course ive been gaming awhile so I go into the Freespace 2 folder and try launching it directly with admin rights and it works fine. I was a bit taken back and it appears the Freespace 2 folder included a file from GOG so Steam evidently has an interesting way of handling older games.
Will be looking to GOG for more older games it appears.

My case and power supply will be in tomorrow. Didn't even notice when I bought them on ebay, but they're from Newegg.

New monitor just showed up and its very nice. It supports the Radeon virtual custom resolution and Freesync to name a few. 75hz with HDMI and 60hz with vga and the custom controls are excellent offering profiles for various types of games or standard usage with custom settings available.

Do I remember correctly that using the Freesync helps improve response time?
