Custom PC Build and Gaming upgrades finished!

So as I previously posted the work in progress last week, my PC is finally done and my setup is complete. Of course it wasn't without its trials and tribulations of building a PC and I made many trips to Ace Hardware for smaller screwdrivers and Best Buy for other last minute additions. A big thanks to my boyfriend for creating and building it for me^^.

Since I was going all out on the new build I decided to also upgrade my mouse and keyboard for my gaming endeavors. I got a new razor mouse, replacing my old Diamondback for the new Deathadder. I like the nice really responsive mouse due to my playing WoW as well as FFXIV currently. I also upgraded my keyboard for a Logitech G110 backlit model, because it gets dark in my corner. it also has some nice macro hotkeys I may use for WoW down the road.

So without further ado, here is my gaming corner, with a guest appearance by my new plush moogle.

Plushie Moogle!

Old school controller
Window on side of case, yes that case is pink....


  1. Looks awesome... I really love the moogle! Jealous, i don't get to play till ps3 release o.o; lol

  2. Thanks, yeah I was very excited to get my moogle finally. Good news is by the ps3 release it will probably be a more polished game.

  3. nice looking setup did you connect that ps2 controller to your pc?

  4. Yeah its the old ps2 controller, I find FFXIV is easier to play with it.
