    the case and mobo don't go too well, if you look in the pic you'll see blue ramsinks glued to the northbridge. the reason for that is the case rotates the mobo upside down, which makes the chipset heat pipe have to work in reverse and it kept overheating when i started overclocking :oops:

    got mine at distribution price (about 20% off) due to where i worked :)

    My case is crap so I wont show it, also my PSU is a very cheap one that came with the case and it took me ages to find it on google, only Xcase.com seems to stock them.

    The mobo is good though although the Northbridge seems a little exposed, the cpu is also good and it has decent hard drive.

    Total cost of mine was 634 including vat

    i have a huge 2" northbridge cooler but it wouldnt fit due to the gfx card over hanging the chipset so had to squeeze in the ram sinks instead. had to cut some of those ram sinks to fit accross the mosfets too due to them not like the v-core voltage being upped

    i was planning on doing the same (with SLI obviously) but my mobo only does 16x PCI-E with one card or 8x with 2 cards and it would be more beneficial to chuck one 8800 in. i know it wont having the "bragging" rights but i used to build crossfire and SLI rigs for work and know they don't give you as punch as you would like as not all games are coded to support it :(

    you think thats bad for my first watercooling setup 4 years ago i went a little OTT and bought a huge rad that took 6x 120mm ys-tech fans that weren't 7v modded....it was like a hair dryer. on the bright side i sat there looking smug with my 1.4ghz chip running at 2.8ghz 8)

    My mobo is the same but unless its changed SLI only runs at 8x anyhow wether you use to 16x slots or not, but that might have changed since I last read about it.

    and yes you are right crossfire and sli dont work right for all games and can cause more BSODS than p****g on your mobo when the comps running.

    yeah they do 2x 16x SLI now

    i was building SLI and crossfire systems for a job i was doing 18 months ago, at the time the crossfire was more awkward because the driver support from ATI was lacking. the resolution was also limited to 1600x1200 because of the silicon image chip they were using couldnt process enough data to allow any higher res.

    his system has nothing over some i've built which were probably priced some where between 2 and 3 grand but he was a gfx designer and had 7 watercooled hard disks in raid 5 lol

    i used to chase top performance in my rigs until i realised the money i was spending and i wasn't actually using the full performance. i also passed through the whole modding phase as well about 4 years ago, some of the mods i did were awful. there's simply no need for 7 blow holes in your case :oops:

    well seeing as u built yours last year at a cost of $1250 (which I think would be about £600-£700 UK price) My gaming machine would be in the price bracket...but as I am writing this I have done the calculations and the amount is £630 and thats without the 22" LCD monitor and 2nd graphics card so add those in there and we're roughly at £800 or more...so laugh all u want but its still a gaming machine and a half :D
