Romer-G mechanical switches
Up to 25 Percent faster actuation with increased durability
Intelligent RGB illumination for customisable lighting
Arx control integration via smart dock
Nine fully programmable G-keys

Most of the setup is now done, just need to do a few more adjustments to the monitor settings.
We're now able to run WoW at max everything and it takes moments to log in to Dalaran! The keyboard is very quiet compared to some of the mechanicals we tried at PCworld, it feels very nice and I'm pretty much comfortable with it already, just need to get used to the G keys near shift and stop pressing them by accident. The customisation of the lighting is epic, you can individually change the colour of every key, and it has many nuts presets like fire or a matrix effect, plus setting for various games highlighting the used keys.
The PC has an overclock button on the front which boosts the processor to 4.2 Ghz and also boosts the GPU which makes a noticeable difference (with a little more noise).

All in all two very happy campers here! Just need to try some BG's/Raids to really test it out.

I'm liking this!

Most mornings I hit the login button, go make a coffee, go sit down and I'm more or less in time for my char to actually log in. :roll:

Today it took like 2 seconds! :lol:

If you start up the old machine, copy the interface/addons and WTF folders, it will have all your addons and settings.

It must be a super feeling that loading screens don't take forever!
And I love to see happy players!

And yes I make backups of the WTF and interface folders, saves loads of time!

I rather wanted to start with a clean slate . . . I had so many redundant or unsupported addons still floating about. My UI is fairly minimalist so it didn't actually take too long in the end, thankfully. :D

I usually do that too. I make a note of the essential addons and then do a clean install of those. My elvui didn't even take nearly as long to reinstall when I got my new PC too.
