- Speed and features Could always be faster! I have been running at the stock 2.6ghz since building, but my chip is said to be really flexible on overclocking so there is potential.
- Design and form factor The case is a left-over from my last build many years ago. Its big and has lots of fans. Kinda ugly and is pretty loud. I still want to upgrade some day.
- Expandability Well, its a custom PC. I can change out hard drives and add RAM & video cards if I want to. Not a ton of restrictions here (for what I would want to do, anyway)
- Noise I have six case fans. They're all stock with the cheapy case I'm using and have always been pretty loud. I plan to change them out some day.
- Size and weight The case is big with plenty of room inside, and made out of aluminium so it's not too heavy. Not that I move it all that much these days.

I use Windows 7 primarily for gaming and Arch Linux for programming and other general computing.
I have two mice listed above. When it comes to gaming I use the Naga primarily for RTS/RPGs and the Lachesis for FPS games. Those combined with the n52te Speedpad make an awesome combo for PC gaming. :)
To complete the set I have two mis-matching low-res monitors (1440x900 and 1280x1024) which I hope to replace some day. Perhaps by adding a second video card and a third monitor. Three screens might be nice but I'm okay with two. Also I have a Logitech 5.1 speaker system for audio. It does its job.
A lot of the extra hardware (case, hard drives, monitors, speakers, etc) have been held over from my last build. I'm hoping to slowly upgrade them all over time when i can afford it.
