Nice looking site - excepting that your left hand nav bar is too large a file and too small to read. Use a more modest splicing, and even consider replacing the graphic with something simpler - or else set the graphic as a background for that table and simply insert the text for the links, so they're there at the start.
Overall it looks good, although for a second it looked like a gamer site while the header was loading. I agree with IBrian about your left menu. You tables (main body area) could use a little more padding so your text/content doesn't look squished up against the left borders.
