Started this build in July, my second build overall (first was a disaster). Got my Cooler Master V8 today, and cleaned up the wiring a bit, I'll post some before and after pics. First the specs: ZALMAN ZM1000-HP 1000W Continuous PSU EVGA 01G-P3-1280-AR GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 EVGA 132-CK-NF78-A1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 780i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard COOLER MASTER COSMOS 1000 Black/ Silver Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case CORSAIR XMS2 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS 300GB 10000 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive Acer P243WAid Black-Silver 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Yorkfield 2.5GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card Now the before pics: And after: Huge improvement I think. Upgrades on the way: Cooler Master HAF 932 Case (about a week away, painting inside all black) Second GTX 280 (as soon as I find one on the cheap) Water Cooling (1-3 months, bought VGA blocks and heatsinks, looking for other parts) I'll edit as I upgrade. Criticisms and fresh ideas are welcome.
