@Nanfoodle: Oblivion is rated M by the ESRB
The ESRB changed the rating on Oblivion less than a year after its release.
Get a degree in Computer Science, period.
Think of it this way. Do you really think you can just get your videogame programing degree from a "for profit" college and waltz in and obtain the job of your dreams? If so I hope you realize that the videogame industry in North America is flooded with veteran talent, so it's extremely competitive for someone fresh outta college.
If you get an actual computer science degree that can give you a broader range of possible employment options when you get out of school. Hell, as you learn to program you might find that you like another niche more than programing videogames, or at the very least you will have more available work opportunities while you try landing your dream job in the gaming industry.
I'm not saying it’s impossible to get a degree from a trade school, and land a job in the videogame industry. It's just not as smart in the long haul, and a much larger gamble to boot.

If you need a good mechanical keyboard, sure. Ducky makes one hell of a great keyboard. Otherwise just buy another cheap-o 20-30 dollar keyboard. No reason to blow a bunch of money on a fancy gaming keyboard. The greater majority of gaming keyboards are way overpriced for functionality that is generally fluff. In my opinion (and the poster above it seems) that money is better spent elsewhere or on a truly nice mechanical keyboard that will last.
Does anyone still play EQ1 or have interest in that?

You do realize you can play Everquest Mac in Windows 7. I'm not goinig to say how on here because I'm not entirely sure how the mods on this site feel about it. A quick search on Google will tell you how to do it.

That CPU came out what, 6-7 years ago? You aren't going to be able to play current let alone up and coming games at med-hi settings with the rig you currently have.
Eyeloled is right, buy more RAM and start saving your money for a whole new build.

That unnamed project that originated back in 1999 is pretty fun and I've played off and on but I had issues grouping with my wonky play schedule.
On that unnamed project they do not allow you to multi-box which sucks for people like my self. I understand why and I don't disagree with their reasoning, because back in 1999 you were only going to multi-box if you had more than one PC at your disposal.
With that in mind I have toyed with Everquest Mac edition, which is upto Planes of Power and it still gives you a much more classic Everquest feel than the standard edition Sony hosts on the main servers. And, you can multi-box for those times you are unable to find a pick up group ;)
What's the longest running profitable MMO?

Ultima Online was released in 1997
Lineage was released in 1998
Everquest was released in 1999
Asheron's Call was also released in 1999
Runescape was released in 2001
Dark age of Camelot was also released in 2001
EvE online was released in 2003
Final Fantasy XI was also released in 2003
Out of that list I Lineage (on a global scale) is more profitable than even some modern MMO's out here in the west. In my opinion, since Ultima Online isn't even listed by EA financials, the oldest profitable MMO, on a global scale is Lineage. Otherwise I would have to say Runescape or EvE online, according to how you want to label profitability.
It's an arbitrary argument regardless. The fact that 4 of the MMO's in the list were released prior to 2000, and are still up and running, is impressive.

Um, EvE did this from the start, there are other games that allow for player alliances (factions if you want to call it that). So tell us how exactly this is any different from what other games have been doing for years now?
I don't think anyone here is arguing that this is a bad feature, but it has been done before.
I didn't personally get caught up in the hype train. I paid very little attention to GW2 news until after all the rave reviews came out after it was released, and I'm glad I did just that. I didn't have unreasonable expectations of the game and I have continued to enjoy my time with Guild Wars 2.
Creative soundcard drivers have always been hit/miss most of the time. As for the software they send with their devices, its always been crappy. It's something I'd always avoid installing, or uninstall when able to do so.

The Numidium was a giant golem and it was not a device used for the Dwemer to travel with in any way, shape, or form. Nothing lore wise really states exactly what happened to the Dwemer but its most likely the race was wiped out during the Battle of Red Mountain.
Nothing in TES lore supports a space ship and the OP is nothing more than a fail troll attempt.
At what level can you start Large Scale Group PvE?

I dunno where the OP is from but I used to live in New Mexico, and I can tell you no amount of filters worked (though they do help). I cleaned my case out at least once a week.
You could literally dust your house, and a few days later you would see a decent film of dust gathering on all the surfaces you just dusted. It is just a hot, aird, dusty land and I'm going to assume the OP lives somewhere like that.
As for that vacuum I've never used one but it sounds like a neat idea.
So you really think running missions and mining are all thats out there?

The biggest thing to do as a newbie is to find a corp, a good corp. That will be one of the harder things you have to do as a new/returning player.

I'm not the only person out there who uses this to play games on then? And as far as your problem goes I don't know what to tell you. I've been using mine for over a year now and I never experience this while playing games. Hopefully you are able to figure it out =\
I completely forgot about an optical drive >_<
As for the heatsink for the CPU, would you suggest one outside of the factory heatsink for this build? I do not intend to overclock given the form factor I’m building around. That would be something I would intend to do on a full size desktop at home. That said, what heatsink/fan would you suggest for this CPU/case combo?
Other peripherals I should be good on. I have a nice surge protector, keyboard, mouse, the monitor I selected has speakers but honestly I have a pretty nice set of headphones I use when gaming away from home.
As suggested I will go ahead and swap out my SSD and ram to the following:
Vid card I’ll swap out for the GeForce GTX 660 you listed.
I guess that sets me straight except for the possibility of a CPU fan/heatsink besides of the stock one.
I travel a lot for work but I usually stay put in one place for a few weeks to a few months. Because of that I often used gaming laptops but I'm in serious need of an upgrade, and I've been considering a mini ITX pc instead of a laptop. I know I can get a better bang for my buck so I'm here with a build in mind and looking for critique and any suggestions.
Vid Card - I'm not sure if this will fit in the case =\
Monitor - It will be a PITA to drag with me, at least it’s not all that often.
OS - I'm sticking with Windows 7. I have zero interest in Windows 8 at this time.
That brings my total to 1,389.91 before shipping and what not.
I don't know if maybe some of you could find a few ways I could spend that money in a better place, or if you could even save me a few bucks. I'm not really interested in spending a whole lot more and I believe I have all of the major bases covered (just uncertain on vid card fitting in the case, being that I've never built a PC this small before).
Thanks in advance!
