    Not really the best place to post it, but I suggest you start a new thread, say you want suggestions and how much you're willing to spend. (Note: be ready to spend a healthy chunk of money if you want a GOOD one.)

    I know, too bad there ain't 120hz 2560x1440 monitors yet.

    I was looking for that earlier. Let's make a thread saying how companies need to get on making IPS 120Hz 2560x1440 displays already!

    correct me if i'm wrong, but such resolution & refresh rate simply cannot be transfered via HDMI or dual-link DVI due to bandwidth limitations

    2nd Monitor: Gateway HX2001L
    Speakers: Kilpsch ProMedia 2.1
    Keyboard: Logitech K360

    Look out boys! Epic beast here!



    Crucial M4 128GB SSD
    Asrock E350M1
    Kingston 2x4GB 1600hz RAM (Although capped at 1066hz speed due to motherboard, but RAM is dirt cheap anyways.)
    70w Power Supply
    LC Power Case

    Build I made for my dad as his birthday present, he started to complain about his computer being sluggish. I'm not expecting it to play Battlefield 3, but it should be able to run Battlefield 1942 as it's the only game he plays.

    Could be correct, I mean it doesn't look like a system that warrants a 700W.

    Dominator Platinum & individually sleeved cables installed. :3
    Only 2 sticks, while my brother's getting the "old" Dominator RAM. But looks nice as heck.

    ^ the ram looks awesome in there though I think it'd look even more epic with silver/black fittings and no copper on the gpu waterblock. it's all personal preference though and it definitely does look really nice, sick job.

    Nope, there are miniITX systems that only take <70w of power.

    I read it took only ~30-40w on load, so I went with that :P

    I think that stripe of copper looks good, personally, but I definitely have considered it sometimes. Honestly, I think going for silver fittings & block would make things look a little bland as far as colors go.

    Man that thing is seriously long. Forgotten how much shorter they've really gotten!!

    What case?

    So my brother's components arrived earlier (hence my replaced RAM). On that occasion we decided we'd set up a ghetto-rig until the Cosmos II arrives. We had the very awkward moment when we unboxed the 3930k and realized it didn't come with a stock cooler. After a call, we found a guy I know had an NH-D14 SE2011 still unopened, so we bought that from him...

    Specs
    Intel i7 3930k
    Noctua NH-D14 SE2011
    Asus P9X79 Deluxe (model chosen for wifi)
    Corsair Dominator 32GB, 1600MHz @ 1.5v (4x8GB)
    Corsair Force 3 240GB
    EVGA GTX 680
    Corsair AX 850

    The case, a Cosmos II, is still missing.
    Without further ado, picturez
