love it pc. I miss my huge desk with stuff all on it. You need to make a mess on yours and have things hanging everywhere, then mine will be cleaner and nicer. XD

Im just jealous of the case.. :worship:

As for wall mounting, I managed to find a nice one for a fiver in my local cheapy shop, sturdy as hell too, and if you need to move it, its only 2 screwholes.

Ive never looked back, nice for cables n shizzle too. Easily moved, looks funky and great for when your trying to hide things behind the monitor itself , lmfao

Yeah they are great when wall mounted...I'm actually watching some small capacity mounts atm on Ebay. We have our 50" Toshiba wall mounted and it makes for so much more room in the lounge.
