    Clean and simple, nothing fancy... nice work on your cables.
    If anything id paint the inside/back of your case to give it a more elegant look.

    you should take that vga cooler and put it on a 8800GT or GTS(G92) and it'll double your 3dmark score

    7 out of 10 from me to.

    I say you replace that Nvidia Card with an ATI to call it a true AMD rig, but thats just me.

    *Tkpenalty is freaked out how similar that build is to his secondary*

    Nicely done, very clean build that looks rather nice. See that hole next to the PSU? route your spare wires behind the mobo tray; its neater.

    Very clean and good cable work. The case is not particularly great, and pics are fuzzy. Offsetting between aesthetics and attention to detail along with build quality. I dub thee 6/10.
