    With the help of PCGamer and some other folks, here is my baby.

    Album of images so I don't clog the post up: [url]http://imgur.com/a/4DRrO[/url]

    I know the cable management is less than ideal, and I plan to redo it soon, but it will probably end up looking mostly the same. Not a lot of options in the 430, I did the best I could. Still very proud of it!

    Horrid Microsoft keyboard (soon upgrading)
    Atrociously awful headphones (soon upgrading)

    NOTE : This is my first comp build. i brought it all of my brother about 3 months ago but had a few different things in it lol.
    have replaced mobo , cpu and gpu as been a noob i shorted the GPU second day i had it. cpu and mobo came when i upgraded for no reason.

    working on cable managment but not too many good options and thinking of getting a new PSU soon as 600w is pushing it with my mods. ocz 750 modular is what im thinking.

    thoughts?

    Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 Motherboard
    Corsair Vengance DDR3 16GB 1866MHz Ram
    Three (3) Gigabyte GV-R7970C-3GD (3Gig video cards)
    Samsung 830 SSD 256GB
    (2) 1 TB Seagate Baracuda HD's 7200 RPM Mirrored Raid
    (2) 400GB Western Digital HD's 7200 RPM Mirrored Raid
    Antec 1200 Watt 80 Amp Gold PS
    Thermaltake Bigwater 760 Plus with additional dual 120mm Radiator for a total of 3
    A couple of Lightscribe Blueray burners.

    Logitech Z-5500 for audio

    The rig was built to run Crysis 2 and 3 soon. But I also play quake 3,4 , bioshock 2 and other games on it.

    Crappy camera does not do the illumination justice, I need something better where I can do a longer exposure shot in the dark. Thanks to Adam Oxford for his tip on that case, I would never have considered an ITX build otherwise.

    You can make some pretty good photos with crappy cameras with right lighting. I take pictures in dark room and point my monitor towards PC whilst its on a full white screen [url]http://www.ledr.com/colours/multi.htm[/url] using the white one, gets pretty good lighting and ending up with some good photos.
