Yea, if your PC powers off and on, then the screen will "wobble" trying to decide if it is supposed to turn off or what, lol, but as long as it works once it has figured that it, i would say that you are golden!  Glad to hear that you got it working!

hey man 

sorry I'm late to the party.

sweet build.

just one thing look at putting a piece of wood under the tower or someting to stop it inhaling the carpet if you have not already done it.

Also how the chair I have been looking at one like that

ohh good one, i had not thought about the block of wood under the PC unit for airflow.  Even if you don't have thick carpet any of it will restrict airflow.
