    claimed it was for backing up his work files, but the 7 fans and UV cables kind of gave it away, i wish i could tap into my company's overhead for some gear

    " Do you Deny this shit be bangin'?"

    LOL

    Why is a DA buying his own computer? Don't they have an IT department? Everything government has to get 3 competitive bids, it is such a pain.

    I honestly would vote for man like that. Instead of spending gov money on hookers, drugs, bribes or trips abroad, he built a bitching rig. I think that is awesome. But, justice must be applied fairly.

    Bitchin' specs are not only for playing games, they also future proof the computer so that its not dog shit slow in two years after your antivirus and normal use fowl things up. I bet he was backing up files in record time.

    Also, nothing wrong with lights and stuff, maybe he just likes that annoying light in his office.

    The Penny arcade comic is big lulz, and I can't but laugh at the DA. You can make a great game rig without the flashy bling, stoopid noob.

    For us that only pertains to items over $1500. Anything under that and it's open season!
