    Neat build, Scythax, but I'd really like to see you get back in there and clean up the cables, personally.

    For whatever reason, I started to laugh uncontrollably when I spotted the tuna can :P
    Nice looking build too

    Ty! I'm actually considering upgrading the GPU to a GTX670, although I'm trying to weigh up whether to go with EVGA or Gigabyte. Kinda wanna give EVGA a go as something different. Gigabyte cards all look exactly the same cosmetic wise... /vanity >.>

    Also, that little toy mini cooper on the right side? That's actually my usb drive! You can open the trunk and it has a slot inside it, and when it's reading the headlights flash. It's fuckin badass

    Thanks! And yes I completely agree about the cables. Biggest problem with non-modular power supply. Oh well lesson learned. When I upgrade my GPU I'll make sure to re-organise all the cables at the same time.

    PS: Sorry for the resolution size. I honestly wasn't sure how to get the picture sizes any smaller. Thanks for the fix TetrisGOAT

    I'd take EVGA over any other nvidia manufacturer, their support is great and they have some pretty neat cooling.

    This is me being paranoid but I wouldn't go with any manufacturer using that tiny toy PCB that's smaller than the cooler. I don't trust it keeping an overclock for the long haul and it doesn't look pretty, either. ASUS 670 DCII would be my choice.

    From my POV EVGA has pretty much failed in the 3rd party cooling solutions for the common builder.

    Their dual fan solutions pretty much only offered dual fans but not much of a cooling or sound advantage than say the Twin Frozr or DCII did. And then there's the radial fan cards which most builders still want to avoid due to their noise. They do excel in SLI and badly ventilated cases but that's not a big representation of the builder's market either.

    Their RMA and trade-up seem great though. Can't wait to experience it when my 460s dies :P (got them with 10 years warranty)

    Pretty sure that they're pretty sure you'll have forgotten in 3-5 years time and that you probably wont be using that card anymore. Also pretty sure most 6yr+ warranties have a non-transferable aspect to them. IE The person that wants to make a warranty claim, must be the person that bought the item. Usually enforced through some registration process at time of install.

    What was your reason for getting a Blu-ray drive?

    Sorry to intrude with a question that is perhaps not best suited to this exact thread, but how much would it cost to build a rig that is considered 'good' nowadays? I'm sitting with a decaying GTX 260, freaking 2 GB of ram (Would have had 4 but the other set caused a damn blue screen.) and some random AMD II x4 CPU.

    Thanks.
