Mini ITX was fun and all, but I miss not having space to run wires and the sometimes issue of not having a long enough wire instead of not having a large enough case. So after this I am reluctant to say I am moving back to Mid Towers.
But anyway here is what I just built.
Sg07 Silverstone Case (With 600w Silverstone PSU)
ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT LGA 1155 Intel Z68 MB
XFX Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5
G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W
Two 19" 4:3 Monitors + One 25" 16:9 Monitor
Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400
1TB OS Hard Drive + 500 GB VM/Fraps HD + Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5" 30GB Caching SSD
I've found that if I don't give myself a budget I will end up trying to buy everything.
So my budget was $1200 and I already had two of the Monitors, Keyboard, Mouse, Case, and the Two Mechanical HDD's.
It is mostly used for VMWare Workstation and of course games.
Thanks. I do enjoy making them as my computer sits on my desk and doesn't take up much room.
But the down fall is the HD 7950 idles at 55-60C in my hot room (because of the orientation of my house my room gets two full windows of sun almost all afternoon. So my room temp is always a bit toasty). But at least it doesn't break 75c when running at full load for a while.
The two on the edges are both 19" 4:3 and the middle is a 25" 16:9.
And no it isn't, it just looks that way but there is a dark wooden dresser that is up against the white table they are on.
