Congratulations to your new GPU! Must feel fantastic!
I would still consider watching a guide on cable management, but you're likely fine as-is.

moved house recently and this is my new setup. it's pretty much complete apart from a couple of small changes. Firstly I need some longer monitor cables so that they can run round the back of my desk and up through the gap behind them. The problem is that I've bought 4+ 3/4m DVI cables now and none of them have actually worked. They either show no picture, or the picture flickers. That's why I have the cable going underneath my keyboard and straight to the second monitor. It looks really crappy but I haven't been able to get it to work any other way.
Second thing I need to try and sort out is the extra table leg. I couldn't find a 'proper' corner desk to fit my dimensions so I just bought two vika amon desks from Ikea and put them at a right angle - that means I have a random table leg sticking out which you can see in the picture. The good thing is that it doesn't really get in the way in the position I use my computer at, so it's not a major issue. I could use some under brackets to secure the two tables together and remove the leg but I don't think it will be sturdy enough to bother doing it. I'd rather have a sturdy desk and a slightly annoying leg than no leg and weak table.
Computer specs are currently an Asus z77 plus LE mobo, 3570k @ 4.5ghz, 16gb 2133mhz RAM, R6870 graphics card, Noctua NHD14, Corsair 650 watt psu and it's in a Corsair 600t. I'm hoping to upgrade the graphics card soon, along with a modular power supply and possibly a new case. The monitor stands are Ikea Galant table extensions with the Capita kitchen legs screwed into the bottom. They're really quite great!

my old card next to the new card, just to show the size diff
im quite happy :P
Finally decided I'm going to "mod" my old Antec 900 v1, will post pictures once I'm done.
Rough idea of what I'm currently planning to do:
Use a Hole Saw to add some cable management holes and route everything behind the board, now I have a fully modular PSU this should be completely possible.
Considering covering the dull, grey mobo backboard with carbon fibre for a better look.
Considering spraying the insides of the case, apart from the mobo tray in a gun metal grey colour.
Nothing overly exciting but should clear up my case a bit and improve it's look!
But yea, the GPU is AWESOME! going from low to Ultra on every game i have is just so pleasing. Even for £300 :P
I've been following this thread for quite some time know. Figured it might be time I contributed a bit. This is my current gaming rig.

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i with Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition Fans.
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600 Mhz 4x4 GB.

Loving this rig. The only thing auditble is the GPU when fans are at 50% or higher. (Which is practially never).
Also using a NZXT White LED Strip, though the pictures really don't do it justice.
very nice and very clean, +1 internets

Also, I spend around 3 hours trying to get all the cables out of the way. In my previous case (600T), it just seemed so much easier.
Looks nice Tamari.
I'd get a background that's made for triple monitors instead of repeating the same one 3 times
No world! You put YOUR hands up!
