I know, I know, over powered CPU, underpowered GPU... It's easier to upgrade the graphics card though than it would be to upgrade the processor though. Now, if only the GPU would actually reliably display via hdmi, life would be pretty dang great.
Update 1: display issue has been resolved. Turns out I'm still suffering slightly from consolitis. There was a small clip behind the GPU that wasn't all the way clipped in. Easy, but embarrassing mistake.
Update 2: Cable management acquired. Nothing a handful of zip ties and some construction grade cable straps to pretty things up a bit.
Update 3: To clarify, there is actually some significance behind the name. Catharsis: the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions. In this case the "emotion" being released is my stubborn illogical attraction to the console. I thought it was fitting and a little clever, I dont know.
