    That case looks stunning, but the white (they look white in some of the pics, but blue in others) fans and white cables really do add a touch of class to it. The (690? Titan?) looks decent, I'm just disappointed that they never made a version with a white cooler shroud (instead of the unpainted slate metal colour).

    You know what'd make it even more awesome - painting a Sabertooth's 'cover' white and getting some white Corsair RAM (or some Dominator platinum) and perhaps a white backplate for the card

    Damn, now you made me want a white 900D or white 750D

    Specs in sig for that build! Yeah the card is a 780 and I would've loved to have found the Galaxy GTX 780 HoF for the white PCB and everything but it wasn't available here and I got this GTX 780 brand new still in box sealed for 1600AED/$435, much lower than the normal market price for those here which is 2600-3000AED/$700-$815). It works well with the Storm Stryker!

    You know whats funny, right before seeing your post I just finished changing out the RAM to Corsair Vengeance LP white RAM! ( http://gear-up.me/ddr3-corsair-venge...00mhz-cl9.html )

    It actually really makes everything look better. A while back I had the Corsair H100i LED set to white, but that was before I got a reference GTX 780 that pushed me to match the green glow effect.

    Tomorrow or something I'll add pics of how my build looks like with the white RAM and how my brother's Thermaltake Level 10 GT build looks!

    - - - Updated - - -

    If I wasn't so busy with school and had time and money to burn and learn how to do things like custom loops, I would've gotten some white coolant or distilled water dyed white with white tubing and watercooled the 780 and CPU as well as have occupied all 4 RAM slots with the white RAM and painted some parts (I think they're heatsinks) white.

    The white GPU backplate seems feasible if its easy to install and available at a reasonable price! Very limited variety here in the United Arab Emirates, though! Do you know of any white GTX 780 backplates maybe I could try to look for one here?

    - - - Updated - - -

    As promised!

    My very slightly updated rig!
    Changes:
    1. Corsair H100i LED set to cycle all colors
    2. Swapped out blue RAM for Corsair Vengeance LP white RAM
    3. Changed desktop wallpaper
    4. Removed Corsair K70 keyboard's wrist rest thingy

    http://imgur.com/a/IKIYr#0

    And my brother's casual gaming build! CPU, GPU, and PSU, keyboard, were spare parts of mine!
    Specs:
    CPU: i5-2320
    CPU cooler: Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer
    Motherboard: MSI B75A-G43 GAMING
    RAM: 2x4GB 1600Mhz Kingston HyperX blue RAM
    PSU: 600w Cooler Master Silent Pro Modular
    SSD: 120GB Samsung 840 EVO
    HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue
    GPU: Gigabyte GTX 760 2GB (Windforce cooler)
    Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT
    Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth 2012
    Mouse: Razer Naga 2012
    Monitor: LG IPS237 (frameless, 1920x1080)
    Operating System: 64bit Windows 7 Professional
    Wi-Fi: Linksys AE3000 USB WiFi adapter
    Audio: Some really good (and loud) Creative speaker system that I forgot the model number of!

    I took 20 new photos of my own build and tried to upload them all but only one pic did, how sad.

    Ah damn, alright. Thought it was some PC-oriented controller with independent d-pad buttons that closely resembled the PS3 one :P

    nah, sony has a pretty tight grip on the copyright for that design, they only really let partners like logitech make anything similar, but nobody is allowed to directly copy it

    the only downside to this is that they never made it PC compatible by default, which sucks because its a much better controller than the 360 controller

    dualshock 4 is Windows compatible, though

    After playing with xbox one and ps4 controllers though, Xbox One is much better and i was never a fan of 360 controller

    I can't wait to try the SteamOS controller though. I have tried both the Xbox One and PS4 and I liked them equally.
    The one with the best OS support gets my support though.

    4770K - EVGA 780 Ti SC- Corsair 350D - V700 - Gryphon Z87
    Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB - Samsung 840 250GB - H60

    I am planning that, but I've had those floating around for ages haha. Naw, what's going on is that I've swapped tops around. Used to be one was full nickel and the other was copper+acrylic.

    Thought flipping it made for a very neat look on both.

    So I finally got around to cleaning up my desk and tried to fix some of the cable spaghetti under my table
    so now I can finally show my setup without feeling ashamed

    This is my pc specs:
    CPU: i5-2500k oc to 4.2
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
    RAM: 8GB of Corsair Vengeance memory 1600Mhz
    GPU: MSI GTX570
    Motherboard: Asus something Z68
    SSD: Samsung 840 256GB
    HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB
    PSU: Fractal Design Newton r2 600W (really nice and quiet)
    Case: Fractal Design R4 (love it)
    Fan controller: some scythe controller that i got in a bundle with the fans
    Fans: 4x Scythe Gentle Typhoons that are running at a smooth 800 RPM
    I built this pc back in august 2011, but i upgraded it with a new PSU new case and SSD over this summer.
    Im fairly happy with it, it might not be top of the line any longer but it does all I need it to do, so I can't really complain


    My peripherals are:
    - a Cooler Master Quickfire TK with blues, it feels like heaven to type on this i could never go back to membrane
    - a Logitech g600 for mmos and a g400 for FPS
    - a Samson C01U great microphone, I got the arm for it cheap in a bundle and I could not really find anything that could compete with it at the price
    and the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, these are my first real headphones and they do not dissapoint, they made me start to actually listen to and appreciate music they are driven by a Creative DAC that is lying on the floor.

    My next upgrade will definitely be either a Korean 27 inch monitor or the M&M stack from Schiit

    Sorry for the long post (hope I can get the Pictures to work)

    Very nice well-rounded build with good audio, glad to see someone with a nice taste in peripherals! They are all really good for the price.
    A 1440p 27" will be nice but I'm afraid a GTX570 is really going to struggle in the more graphics-heavy games at that resolution. I suppose your upgrade path will involve an R280X at some point, or maybe even a GTX780/R290X depending on how fierce the price-wars get between AMD and nVidia.
    Then you can get a better cooler to push that lil' i5 2500K to 4.6-4.8ghz to keep up with the increased GPU demand.

    But good lord what is going on with your wallpaper :S

    I mostly play Indie games and Old games (think KoTOR or Rome total war) so i don't really need a new GPU yet :P might get one when the next generation gets released

    Whats wrong with the wallpaper? :P

    I mean generation GTX8xx or Rx 3xx
