Nice one! How much did the whole setup cost?

Also, what kind of games are you playing on it? And what kind of performance are you getting?

Nice looking case! The green window looks awesome, I like the blue glow from my Nine Hundred but green looks great with the nVidia theme.

Eek, is the green drive your only drive?

Theyre not usually used as OS drives as theyre energy efficent drives... Let us know how it goes.

But it looks nice........ If you cleaned up the wiring

Enjoy it, its a nice setup

Yeah, I was going to buy the Caviar Black 1TB from Best Buy but the site advertised differently than the store and was $50 more in the store! I had no idea. I can fix that when I get me next pay check.

And I have no idea how to neatly place my wiring Any advice would be appreciated

The whole setup cost around $935. Not too bad.

And I'm going to be playing First Person Shooters and Simulations. I still need to get around to buying some games

I ran some Team Fortress 2 for a little bit at full graphics and it was very smooth. Ran well. EDIT: Just ran the Need For Speed World Beta on full graphics looks awesome and ran smooth until I got an unexpected crash. Now I need to try some more graphically enhanced games out on it like GTA 4 and FSX.

Yeah, you should definitely sort that wiring out. Post just an internal pic to a wiring thread in the OC section and ask for advise there - for example here.

Thanks Now i need to work on a sig! Great forums here

And holy cow yes.

I had a really, REALLY old computer before, and I have an HP Pavilion dv7 Laptop which is nice for media and stuff but not gaming.

My old computer had a really old Pentium processor, and 1.5gb od DDR RAM. (Didn't even have a graphics card!)

Best regards,
Mike
