My 2 year old setup still doing what it is supposed to do, but due for several upgrades within the next 6 months:
ASRock P55 Deluxe 3
Gefore 460 GTX SLI
Samsung F1 Spinpoint 1TB
and some 850W power supply.
My trusty Iiyama ProLite B2409HDS
Gioteck EX05 Wireless
I'm looking for a GPU and CPU upgrade. No idea how good my mobo will handle future upgrades. No idea if more than 4gig ram is necessary, but I might swap them out for 2*4 sticks. An SSD is on the list too, since my case has one of those SSD docks on top.
This was my first custom PC. Before I always bought those store-configured desktops. It's a bit peculiar really, since I know absolutely nothing about my PC (even though I have opened my case several times and fixed some mechanical issues, it doesn't look that complicated really. Only the intense wiring the techies from the webshop have done for me looks like it's quite a feat) I'm a bit 'scared' of upgrading.
Perhaps I'll just buy my upgrade parts from the webshop again and have them re-assemble it for a small fee. Or I might just do it myself with plenty of internet manuals
But it still runs BF3 maxed out, with shadows disabled (so not really maxed out ), so it'll be capable of running GW2, Black Ops 2 and the new Fifa/NBA games too.
It's also my first PC that allows me to run basically all recent games. And that at the age of 24. Bit sad

So you don't have to click on the link that I posted earlier. :P
Yes, I love Logitech.
You can't see the case but it has a Cooler Master elite 330 case (though without the sidewindow, just a panel)
i5 2500 (not K, not K, just the locked version)
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ for that processor
GTX 460 1GB
8 GB G.Skill Ripjaws ram
Corsair 500CX PSU
AsRock DE/S3 mobo
Western Digital 500GB HDD
And a optical drive of course.

If it's doing what it's supposed to, why upgrade? And in case you nevertheless decided to upgrade, you'd be stuck with "dead" socket meaning that board doesn't support the newest CPU's anymore. You'd have to buy motherboard, CPU and new RAM and GPU if you so desired. That'd be more like complete overhaul instead of upgrade so I just wouldn't do that yet. Wait for couple of years when it starts to struggle to keep up and then buy the newest (which will be far superior compared to what you could buy now which'd be minorly better than what you have now). That's what I'd do anyway.My 2 year old setup still doing what it is supposed to do, but due for several upgrades within the next 6 months.
Oh and if you're looking for a nicely priced, great performing and solid quality SSD, check out the Samsung 830. As far as installing it yourself it's a piece of cake. Screw in, plug the 2 wires and go. Installing a GPU would be similar (infact, so would pretty much anything inside your PC).
I got my HDD working today when i finished up my cable management. I have more plans of making all my cables blue and a lot of modding work but it will have to wait until i get some more money again. Anyway for now here is the results!
Terrible cable management back behind:
Inside the case:
Outside the case:
Please don't make fun of the awful panel in my room :P
I tried to take a picture in the dark with no camera flash and it was terrible. The blue lighting off the fans is really nice and makes the inside of the case look just as nice as well.
