    Nice looks. How come you don't put faster hardware in there though? Do you build custom PC's for clients?

    I built this for a friend who had less than $500.00 to spend. Thanks to newegg and a few rebates I was able to get under that mark. The person that I built it for uses it mainly for internet, so no need for faster hardware or overclocking.

    And yes, I have built seven computers over the last year or so.

    It's a very nice clean build, awesome budget PC. It's a shame some people buy a Dell or Emachines over something as nice as this.

    Where did you put all the wires you didn't use...Some tips on wire management would be appreciated. Thanks

    Well, since this was going to be used by somebody other than myself, I just neatly wrapped and placed them inside the empty drive cage so they would be accesable if they should decided to add other parts. (fans, drives, whatever would require power)
    I wanted it to be as user serviceable as possible (ie, dont call me unless something isnt working right!)

    If its for your own use, I would look around at others who have cleanly run cables behind the motherboard tray.

    Nice built, but the blue light is too bright for my liking.
