    2nd,

    i also question the specs, 2500Mhz (oc? or typo) ram is not going to run stable on a 3960x, 2133 is about as high as you can get stable, the memory controller is one of the big advantages to upgrading to ivy-e

    Just moved so walls and etc. are pretty plain and cable management non-existant. Here's an overall pic though:



    Everything can change color except the Blackwidow, so I just made everything green to match for the pic lol.

    Sorted the cable management out a bit now, its hard doing good cable work in a small case but i think that's about how good i can get it right now.

    Anyhow, components being:
    ASRock Z87M Extreme4 mATX
    Samsung SSD Pro 840 256GB
    Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5 GHz
    Corsair 4GB (2x4GB) CL9 1600Mhz XMS3
    2x Noctua NF-S12B-FLX case fans
    Asus GeForce GTX 780 3GB
    Noctua NH-U14S cpu heatsink
    BitFenix Prodigy M white as case.
    2x WD RE4 1TB (gonna RAID these two later on)
    Corsair AX 760W 80+ Platinum Modular (been told its overpriced but only one of the recommendation available in my country is from a store i do not trust in case i need to RMA something, so meh :P)

    Cheap? The price has barely gone down the last 2 years... But yea, 8gb is the way to go nowadays.

    I finally decided to get a proper sized monitor and while I was hesitant for quite a while, on Saturday I brought one of those Korean 1440p monitors on ebay and it arrived today.





    The monitor on the left is the one I was using as my primary up until now.

    I will admit, I did wuss out at the last minute and payed the extra 24 euro for the "pixel perfect" version, but that is exactly what I got, not a single defective pixel I can detect and while there is some very minor back light bleed, I had to bring up and full black screen before I even noticed it.

    The few things I was concerned about before I brought it, such as the response time, turned out to be non-issues. Though I am pretty sure I need a bigger/better desk at this point.

    And while my Radeon HD 6850 can run games on it reasonably well as long as I keep the settings fairly conservative, I plan to upgrade to a R9 290 at some point after the board partners are allowed to release their custom coolers.

    Pretty basic, haven't done any cable management. Using the components below. About to upgrade to the R9 290 though once they release ones with more options than the cards now.

    Edit: HOLY GIANT PICTURE. Sorry about that. (Fixed )

    Just had someone PM me about my desk, figured I'd post the answer here in case others had the same question. My desk is:

    http://www.staples.com/OSP-Design-Me...product_807666

    As you can see though, I had to alter the top 2 shelves so that my monitors would fit over them. Depending on the size of your monitors you may or may not have to do the same. I just used a chop saw and took a couple inches off each panel to make them flush with the rest of the top of the desk.

    Here it is.

    I haven't tried to overclock it and I don't plan on it either as in the benchmarks I've seen, a R9 290 won't push modern games past 60 fps once you crank up the graphic settings at this resolution.
