    Default My rig

    Its not much compared to some of your rigs but im happy with the performance for now, although i would like to sli it.

    Intel I5 2500K (no overclock- not needed)
    Gigabyte GTX560ti Super over clock (1gb ddr5 ram)
    Corsair XMS3 8GB DDR3 1600MHz 8gb ram (2x4gb) (CAS 9-9-9-27)
    Cooler master silent pro 600w (80+ gold rated) (90% eff)
    Hitachi deskstar 7k200 1TB
    Asus p8p67 pro
    Pioneer s19LBK
    akasa venom cpu cooler
    enermax luxuray case

    I can run nearly all games at full graphics on my 1680x1050 screen but would like to upgrade to sli so i can use my current screen as a second screen and have, budget Dependant 1080p screen or 1920x1200

    Crysis 2 full graphics (everything on ultra or as high as possible without having msaa turned up high)
    BF3 singleplayer on ultra, multiplayer on ultra as long as there isnt many players but i play on high graphics so i never get lag.

    The pc stays cool all the time <60c, you cannot hear the graphics card unless you are on the minecraft menu where it makes a quite whining noise (dont know why?) the cpu fan is the loudest one but is still very quite. But i really would like to do some cable management on it, there is plenty of space to do it as the case includes holes for cable management that goes behind the motherboard

    Cost about Ģ800 from scan with next day delivery ( i get it for free by being a member of another forum)

    I know but not much I could do about it, I made them out of the strongest stuff I could find which gave the ability to mold it, this would be fine in most cases, but the transporting and moving about (itīs been at 5 different modding events already!) I guess had itīs toll

    It's just the design of the case, it doesnt really matter if it's mounted top or bottom, unless say you have a personal prefference. The main advantage of the bottom mounting, is if you move your system about allot, like taking it to LAN party's etc.. So while in transit, incase of the off chance that the case gets knoocked about, if the PSU moves or fall's from it's mounting and crushes the components below.

    Looking at the pic, it might be possible to also replace the PSU easier, without removing the m-board etc... but some spacious top mounted cases, may have this advantage too.
