Interior decorating is something that I need a lot of help with. It would be great to have the cash to pay someone who could spruce up my home. An unlimited budget is something that my family does not have. This, unfortunately, means that I can’t pick out a color scheme for a room by myself. Thankfully, there is a woman in my life who can make a room look awesome without having to hire a decorator. The most recent project, updating the kitchen from a classic 1970’s look to a kitchen with a modern feel. I did all the work but she did all the design and I love it. I especially like that the tacky colors of the old kitchen countertops are gone.

With my computers, though, I have some major preferences to matching components so that the system looks like all the parts are meant to go together. Personally, I am not one for a lot of glitz and glam on my boards, either. It is nice to see that Gigabyte has gotten away from some of that with their current G1 series boards. This particular board, the Gaming G1 Black Edition, doesn’t have any gun shaped heatsinks on it or colors that would not match any other components on the market. Instead they have gone with a classic black, red, and grey theme.
