My name is Kel, but I am known online as PraiseChaos. The name PraiseChaos comes from a belief that no matter how much crap you think you have to deal with, there's someone somewhere who is dealing with something much worse than your problems. It also keeps life interesting.
I'm an 360, Wii, and PC gamer. I'm hoping to get a PS3 eventually. I don't stick to any certain genre of game. My favorites are rhythm games and FPS's.
In real life, I'm a student at WVU Institute of Technology studying Computer Science. I also do programming and IT work part time to make some extra cash, which I promptly blow on video games. I was also the founder and chairman of a local gaming community for two years.
I'm currently playing:
All those games I received for Christmas.
I present my gaming/main coding PC. I used to play Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat quite a bit, but I've had to cut back because of school. I'm going to invest in Team Fortress 2 pretty soon so I'll be able to shoot Caffeine in the face (or just get shot myself...)
This rig includes (more or less):
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
ASUS M2R32-MVP Motherboard
1 Gig x 2 of Corsair XMS DDR
2 x Western Digital Raptors 37gb
Swifttech MCP-55 water pump w/ Swifttech Apogee GT waterblock (I think)
This is the top of my machine. You'll notice the box fan to the right. I've been too lazy to put real 120mm fans on my radiator, so I use that for the moment. It works fine, but it's a pain to take that to LANs. ;)
The big black thing is my radiator. Everything else are random stickers and things I've collected from LANs or random events over the years.
Here's the first picture of inside my PC. You'll see my waterblock and some random other things.
This picture is a picture of a rat's nest. I've failed at cable management lately.
Here's my monitor and things. I've got a gaming mouse pad, a Logitech MX500, and a wireless keyboard that I use for gaming, but they're all spread out between my living room and computer room. I didn't feel like taking the time to gathering it all back up.
