No, a Silverstone 600w gold sfx. I don't think you comprehend the beastly nature of the HoF. Let's put it this way, if you are building a PC, and you hear the Knight Rider theme looping in your...

Just finished Never Alone. Petty good I thought. It's not often you see an Inupiat based game. I think some of the Canadians (as well as others) who frequent this forum might get a kick out of it.
