Update - the system has been running very well. In fact, I built a desktop downstairs in my office for some serious gaming, and I find that the majority of the time, I am still on the CX7 playing because I can hang with the kids while gaming. This past weekend, I was informed in game (by Guild Wars) - "You have been playing for 6 hours. Take a break."
I thought that was cool. I have normally seen the 1 and 2 hour prompts - but hadn't seen that one.
That being said - everyone reading my posts know that I enjoy this system - except for the sound. I need to know if there is a problem or if it is due to my hearing loss. The other sytems I owned (the EX7 and GX7) had speakers in the front and the CX7 have them on top (keyboard area) towards the back. So it could be due to that as well. But I just haven't been satisfied with the sound. So I have requested tech support to check it out and see if there is a problem or not.
So…. the system is on its way to Hypersonic HQ. I am definitely going to have to hang out in my home office now to spend time with the desktop - because there is a void next to my easy chair in the family room.
UPS better not lose it. I have already blacklisted the USPS for computer shipping.
