Damn what did you do rob a bank! That is an awesome system but i bet it cost some serious cash. I would say its great how it is. But if you game a lot the right keyboard / mouse can make all the difference (just commenting on your "whatever" for keyboard / mouse).

Thanks bigstanklo...what would you recommend for mouse/keyboard? I certainly won't go wireless because I've heard about the latency issues when playing games...what do you suggest?

That is a very impressive system! Also wireless isn't that laggy, but an ordinary cable is generally more reliable.

Especially for gaming. You don't want to be kickin *** in Halo and suddenly your mouse skips right as your about to make a move. I'll never game with wireless (at least not until they totally perfect the technology).

Oh right you mean wireless keyboard and mouse. Yeah, using normal wired keyboard and mouse is better because if the batteries die then you're screwed lol.
