Figured after 23 hours of install time (AP and myself) and setup I'd post some pictures of the new gaming/theater rig.

Also look forward to see what everyone else is gaming on these days.

I was out with AP last night and he said he told a few of the regulars (Dakar, Fatty) about the setup so I figured I'd post up some pictures. After moving I was without xbox until this rig was finally finished but now...

It's a great idea. You're not getting any images of my setup in its current state, though. Nowhere near presentable.

I edited the thread title to make it obvious that it's an image thread - useful for anyone browsing on a 3G connection.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

In the same spot my current hub xbox 360 is. 360 is the sole media provider in the room.
