    This is the second rig I've done at that cost for "low" income families. The other was for a friend of mine who's currently a poor college student, but he hooked me up with this family to get their rig built. I'm supposed to build a third rig for another person soon.

    Honestly, I'm hoping to grab up a job at a computer shop within the next month. We'll see how it goes thou. :p

    That's very nice of you bro, just gotta be careful who you help, but all these people you are mentioning seem like they deserved your help though :). I love building low cost rigs, creates a challenge, but fun.

    I'm being careful. Right now these are all people I've known for quite some time.

    Plus, I have a "contract" I've been getting them to sign, that way I can use copies of said contract when I apply for PC shop jobs. "Look, these are some of my past customers..." :D

    Yeah, that's why I chose to do the contract thing. Looks good to both the people I'm currently building for, and my future boss. :D

    Yup :)

    I might be switching over my i7 from one of my tech stations to the Torture Rack, wanna see if I get some benching going on in a bit. That rack is better as you have more places to put fans :)

    The Corsair is the better psu. Stick with it. Despite being rated at 100W more, the OCZ actually puts out less on the 12v than the Corsair.

    So, did you want to keep the case? I know I did when I bought one for my dad for his birthday. He almost ended up with a 2nd hand Stacker 830 Evo instead. lol.

    ^^ Hell ya Wile E...my buddy almost ended up with my 690 Basic. :laugh: But man that 690II Advanced is pretty sleek with that Sata dock on top :cool: And cable management is a breeze...plenty of holes to run cables through. Oh and the front fan has a switch on the top of the case to turn the bluelit led's off or on.

    The only thing I didn't like is they changed the tool-less expansions slot easy clips for thumbscrews.

    Yanked out my water cooling (the air cooler is temporary) while I build a new monstrosity involving a tech bench I never use.

    So yeah, I have a HSPC Top Deck and I'm mounting two RX120's on the upper level along with a MCP355 w/res. top. On the bottom level will be a 3x120 Koolance rad. I want it to look nice and neat (try to at least) so I gotta work with various fittings. Oh, and I finally get to make use of the lower HDD rack again. It makes it so much tidier.

    Looks pretty bitchin' for being temporary. I really like the bracket that holds the fan by your gpus.
