    I don't agree with motherboard/CPU choice. You could have gotten something much stronger from Intel's offerings for the same amount of $$.

    Why upgrade from a GTX 460 to a GTX 560? The difference will be so minuscule you'll swear they're the same graphics card. (To a degree, they actually are.)

    Here's a comparison of a 460 768MB VRAM vs a 560 Ti (a better 560, the plain 560 will be a chunk weaker.)

    i know they are the same card i was going to get another 460 but i could not find another 768mb versions so i went with the 560 and plan on sli 2 of them but money is tight atm so going with a budget card and i know the diff in price is only like 50 buck but eh. And for the mobo/cpu i am a amd fan not saying any bad about intel i just prefer amd and the build was only 800 bucks so im happy with it.

    I just want to clarify, you're not intending to try and SLI a 560 and 460 are you? I perhaps misread but just want to be sure
    I do agree that you could have got an Intel based build for similar price and get more performance (i3-2100 for example, or an i5-2400 if you were looking for something more). However, if you're happy with it, that's what matters

    Looking good Marest! Even though I'm not into red builds, yours is looking very neat.

    I love how you posted a picture of the cable management, a lot of people wouldn't dare to do that lol.

    That's pretty neat actually for an air cooled setup. Looking good!

    What were the specs and parts again?

    Thanks a lot! As I said I'll post some better pictures later; crappy phone-quality doesn't suffice really.

    Well, it can be a good indicator for some people looking into that specific case (FT02). I've been really picky about the cable management in this build though and I've spend way more than just a few hours making it look as tidy as possible. Essentially, no visable cables from the front, perfect "bends" on all cables going from motherboard, gpu and so on, no visable cables from the Corsair H80 unit, etc.

    Good stuff Marest, that's some dedication to the whole red theme, right down to the Asus GPU and Fatal1ty mobo :P
    To achieve cable management like that I'll need to strip off my Seasonic sleeves (because it takes a fucking sledgehammer to make them bend) and replace them with something softer/flexible! It'll definitely be black-themed with blue lighting because I've been sucked into the whole "once you go black etc etc".

    Love your build Marest, I like the hint of surgical precession with the glove

    Antec HCG 620M or OCZ-750w-fatal1ty for the red would look cool (AX750 is obviously better I just meant for looks)

    Yeah i really dig your red/black theme *thumbs up*
