So, here's the beast....
Side view 1... show how good cable management is
Side view 2.
Front view with ROM and soundcard front panel.
Front view in situ... shows how tall best is in comparison to desk.
Side view 3... shows just how high this beast is, next to my sexy legs.
Side view 4.... on my desk just prior to closing up, firing up.
All Fired Up and running like a dream.
So, am I happy with my new beast? You betcha!
