New system I'm building slowly piece by piece but it's getting there. Hopefully it will be finished by Valentines Day.
NZXT Phantom Black
Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W 80Plus Bronze Certified, Power Supply
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield
CoolIT Systems VAN-R120 Vantage A.L.C. CPU Cooler
ASUS 24X DVD Burner Black SATA Model DRW-24B3LT LightScribe Support - OEM
2x Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory with Red/Green LEDs (12GB total)
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Galaxy GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi)
So far I have the case and PSU. The Motherboard and DVD drive are on order and should be here on Monday. Processor and Cooler I will be ordering next week. And the memory the week after that. Graphics card I'm pulling from my current system since it's less than 6mos old. The HDD I will be getting either along with the memory or at least about the same time. The case has pretty good airflow but I might get a few more fans for it too in the future.
This is gonna be a big upgrade for me since my last PC is a HP Media center with a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and 3gb ram. (to embarrased to show pics of that ) It will also be the first PC I've build for myself since 1998. The last one I built was a Pentium2 and a 486DX266 before that. So hopefully everythinng will go smoothly.

As for gaming, I've tried it at my friends' (I'm always really careful about what I buy; I live in a 3room-apartment, where my brother and his GF lives with me. [of course they don't pay for themselves, and I only get €500~/month ._.] So I want to try things out first) and all it does is making me feel dizzy as soon as the camera moves. Here I'm not alone, however, as most people I've talked with agree.
