Surround sound PC gaming setup - Updated

I posted some pics last year but there's been a few changes since then so here's a some new ones.

 

The computer itself isn't anything special but it'll still run Crysis smoothly with max settings at 1920x1080 and 4xAA.
Intel Core i5-750 @ 3.8GHz processor
ATI 5850 graphics card
4GB Corsair XMS3 RAM
1TB Samsung Spinpoint hard disk

 

Here's an old photo showing the rear speakers aswell. The 1000Ci center speaker that you can see in this old picture has now been replaced with a regular 1010i speaker to match the other four. The reason I swapped it was because the 1000Ci is designed to give clear dialogue in movies but I wanted to use five identical 1010i speakers because it gives better integration which seems to work better for the sound effects you get in games.

Left hander like me Steve? What is the keypad thing?

Nice set up, almost more hifi than PC, very nice. Smile

Thanks Graham. The keypad is a cheap Labtec numberpad. It's supposed to be used with laptops that don't have a built in numberpad but I find it works well as a control pad when playing FPS games.
