Ordered all the parts for my new computer last week and it should be up and running by tommorow night and I'm super ecited for it! I wasn't swinging for the ultimate PC or anything as I'm on a student budget, but I'm pretty happy with how it ended up.
Case: Coolermaster Elite 335U w/ 500W power supply (great $70 combined deal)
i5 3570K 3.4G
2x 4GB PC3-10600 1333MHz
Radeon HD 7850 PCIE DDR5 DD (This wasn't so easy to track down in Canada apparantly haha)
Kingston 120GB SSD
WD 1TB 3.5" Caviar
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
Monitor: VIEWSONIC 22IN WS LED 1920X1080 1000:1 VA2248M-LED VGA DVI-D 5MS (Built-in speakers for when/if I wanna take it elsewhere)
So excited considering I'm coming to you currently from a 4 year old laptop Q_Q.
If a shaman tells you that he can't tank, he's just not doing it right.
i think when i upgraded my last build to the koolance bay res/dual pump combo it was a $500 upgrade
and then there is the maintenance.....
i7-4790K | Z97 Class. | 16GB DDR3-2400 | GTX-980 | RAIDR | 512GB Samsung 830 | SuperNOVA 1Kw P2 | RV05
Dell U3415w | Ducky Shine3 YoS | Zowie ZA11 | Xonar Essence One | Tannoy Reveal 402
1.63 volt on the GTX 570? I'm hoping you mean 1.063.
Also, one of the reasons that reference cards are recommended for SLI and Crossfire, is that they will have an easier time to get fresh air compared to most aftermarket solutions whom just whip the air around and they'd thus be cannibalising on the hot air instead of exhausting it in the back; Even with good air flow, that still happens.
The top air will be slightly more forced no matter how you set it up in air cooling; it also is the one where you plug the monitor(s) into, adding heat.
Either way, great to still see pictures of LGA1366

Nice setup, except for that monitor... ugh the pixels.
System Specs -
CPU - i5 2500k @ 5ghz | CPU Cooler - RASA RX240 | Motherboard - Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z/Gen3| GPU - Nvidia GTX 590|
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB | RAM - 8GB Corsair Vengeance | PSU - Corsair TX850M | Case - CoolerMaster HAF 922
| Monitor - Crossover 27Q (2560x1440) | Sidewinder X4 Keyboard |
It's not the pixels that would worry me on a screen that huge while sitting so close...it's the fact that I'd probably have to swivel my whole head to see stuff coming from the sides if I was playing a first person shooter o_O
