Thread: Project: Sexy

    Project: Sexy

    Project:
    Sexy, name derived from my own nickname and hopefully everyones reaction by the time I'm through... will encompass all the skills I have thusfar aquired in my eventful 21 years of life. As long as I can remember I've strived to make normal things better, personal, and genuinely unique. Constantly I find my self looking at things and saying "I like this... but it's missing something." This project, by the time I'm finished, will have everything I've been wanting in a computer for some time now. It won't be an easy task, but I'm starting early, and giving myself plenty of time to do it right.

    Goals:
    -Clean Crisp Look (remove useless things, all cables sleeved, attention to details)
    -Quiet (removing all noise that shouldn't be there)
    -Powerful (using next gen hardware for next gen apps)
    -Innovation (whatever I come up with...)



    Hardware:
    Most everything in this build will be new (most of it hasn't even been released yet.) I am starting my planning here, and will update the list as I decide what I want.
