My new baby :)

Asus P8P67 EVO Motherboard.
Intel Core i5 2500 CPU. ( I should have bought the K version but pressed the wrong button and didnt realise - repercussions are that the 2500 can only be overclocked to around 4GHZ as opposed to the K which can be OC to around 5.5 GHZ).
Corsair Vengeance Blue 4x4GB (16GB Total).
Thermaltake FRIO CPU Cooler.
OCZ Agility III SATA 120GB SSD Hard Drive.
1TB Western Digital Green HDD> 7200.
EVGA GForce GTX260 560 SC 1024MB.
Corsair HX750 ATX2.2 Modular PSU.

Total Cost: £924.07

Pictures to follow........

Haha yes it is loud. If my PC was on a solid floor and you turn it on i'm sure it would shoot backwards.

Loving your case so far, what do you think of your EVGA card? I think if I could go back I'd have the MSI one because it looks nicer but thats it really. Also, is there any reason why you bought the i7 over the i5? How are you finding the new ASUS BIOS?

My computer is SUPER quiet when not under load, only fans that are running are on the GPU, PSU & CPU (CPU is stock & will be replaced eventually). EVGA card is great, no graphic problems at all.... it looks class too, though the main face is not really visible the chrome looking pipes on the side are and they look great. The i7 is faster, has more cache, & has hyper threading technology.

I'm going to be building a new PC soon, but I am keeping the case. I will post a new picture of the inside when I'm done. Also never did get around to wire maintenance because I am going to redo the room anyways.
