Wow. I thought I'd just built a screamin' rig (E6600, Intle 965 mobo, 2Gb DDR2, 2x120Gb HDs, 7900GT and an Audigy zs), but you've topped my new baby in everything but the case (I got the Antec Nine Hundred with all the gynormous fans) and my 26" Olevia widescreen.

Is that a Zalman 9500 cooler on the processor?

I have one for my Athlon 3500+ system and their vidcard cooler is on my 7900GT vidcard on the E6600 rig and I find they make a big difference. I consider them well worth the cost.

One thing I've noticed about most simpit setups is that the joystick is always offset instead of being centered. I've tried it that way, and it just doesn't work for me. I need my stick about six to eight inches away and about level with my solar plexus. I'm still brainstorming for a way to arrange it so that I still have easy access to my keyboard when my stick is in the ideal postion...

cheers

Is the "cabinetry"-woodwork-attached to the chair permanently,or is it removable like a saddle,for vacuuming,etc?

I like the design BTW,but,like someone said earlier,I prefer centered joystick.
It's still nice design,esp. the 'step-up' to the mouse.

Very nice http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I modified my old workchair last week and change stick place by my side. It's been earlier centered like throttle too (I have CH FS+PT+PP & FY+TQ). Now PT is left side and FS right - now it seems that I got better shot... not my plane but enemy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Here is seat my upcoming pit --> http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_1...0002_763085_-1_10509 (http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_10001_10002_763085_-1_10509)

It's black one far left without seat cover... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

Thanks for the 'Jeg's' link,those seats are suprisingly cheap.I knew they were the place for "hot rod" stuff,but never expected seats to be that cheap.I too am building a simmer/gamer.
