If you're talking about the thing on the right, that's the receiver/amplifier deal for the stereo. The actual PC tower looks like it's hidden by the chair under the left side of the desk. Am I wrong?

Here the specs on the sound system...

CLICK HERE (http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/1541/671736jv.jpg) to see the Harmon Kardon reciever that can't be seen in the above photo.

The 12" subs are my pride and joy of the entire sound system, when playing at 30hz near 3/4 power it draws soo much power I had to run an extension cord from another room that is on a seperate breaker to prevent the breaker to flip thats for my room :P

This Sub was the Stereophile Guide to Home Theater 2003 Editor's Choice Gold Award Winner pretty much that means it OWNS!

I have actually cracked the wall in my room with this sound system due to the xtreme SPL of this setup.

Testing a x1900xtx, and its amazing!!!

http://x4.putfile.com/2/4803022243.jpg

Here is my desk, I just serviced my 13,000 BTU AC Unit to get ready
for summer and made a custom window kit to exhaust the hot air.
I still need to paint it black, but you get the idea....

To cool the PC when doing hella overclocking what I do is just turn the fins to the right
and then open the front of the case and the air gets ****** right in with the 120mm
80cfm fan and 80mm 45cfm fan. I can keep my room around 62 deg with this unit.

http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/9700/side9cy.jpg

Here is a updated pic that shows tv better connected to 360 and new layout for the setup...

Having the Senn 595's amped by the Harmopn Kardon is amazing...

http://img154.imageshack.us/img154/586/newside0wq.jpg

I changed the way the AC unit exhausts the hot air.
The hose in the old setup was creating alot of heat so
I made the hose only 1 foot and then insulated it and made a hole so that
I could keep the blinds down of the window, it dropped room temps another 4 deg,
I'm around 69.8 to 72.5 avg. for room temps...

Messy setups FTL. Your setup would look alot better with a little attention to detail.

Also, sometimes less is MORE.

I used to have a 5.1 setup for my PC and never really liked the sound. I eventually hooked up my old Denon receiver and an older pair of Mirage bookshelf speakers and now it sounds better than it ever did in the past.

5.1 = too much BS for a computer unless you're gaming alot and have a good 5.1 sound card.
2.1 = nice setup
2.0 = also nice
