All I can say is... KICK-ASS! This thing is awesome! I can play all of my games with their highest video settings!

I have but a few questions, though. Near the top of my case theres a blue light that stays on even after I shut my 'puter off and a yellowish light where my network cable plugs in constantly flickers even after my PC is off. Is either of these normal?

In Team Fortress 2, both bottom corners seem to be cut off, which is fine since I can  see everything:

Also, the respawn countdown is in  a different spot:

Those lights are perfectly normal.   

As for TF2, you have the "minimal HUD view" checked under the game's multiplayer options (i believe). It makes the screens like that. Disable "minimal HUD view" and the game will revert back to default view settings.

I personally play with the minimal on, i like it better that way. ;)

Hey thanks, Duke!
After I unchecked 'minimal HUD view' I decided I like it better, too.

A couple of things I forgot to mention before is  there any DVD\CD burning software(like Ahead Nero) or DVD movie playback software(like Cyberlink PowerDVD) that supposed to come with my PC?
