    Those photos were taken not longer after I built it (November 2010)
    I cleaned it out last week for the first time tho and it was pretty dam dirty, also moved it as the fan vents above the heatsink were against the wall (there is no fan in them yet) but I shall be adding an 80mm fan to there and one to the top of the case blowing upwards to increase air movement along with getting a better heatsink and fan controls soon, once I have a new graphics card

    Thankfully all the front, top and bottom have foam like filters on them which I can remove and wash too

    i5 750 (OC to 3.8GHz)
    4GB 1600MHz DDR3
    2x Samsung F1 500GB (RAID0)
    Radeon 4890 with custom cooler, OC'd

    Figure I'll wait until Skyrim and BF3 are released before making a decision on upgrading the graphics card.

    17" laptop now sits on the right as well and runs moving map and flight logging software over network. Problem with going triple screen wide is that I don't have the hardware to drive that many pixels at an acceptable fram rate! Projector is probably a better path for out of aircraft visuals, with the glass on a separate computer.

    Next step is probably to get Project Magenta Project Magenta - High End Flight Simulation Software for networked glass systems and then the ultimate: FlightDeckSolutions dual seat dual trainer (to start with) Flight Deck Solutions

    Those Dell XPS 730's were lovely looking PCs. I'd have been tempted by one if they still made them when I built my last PC. It's a shame Dell bought over Alienware and ditched the whole line-up as the Alienware's are just overpriced tat compared to the XPS's

    My Current gaming rig :-

    Intel i7-920 CPU
    18Gb DDR3-1333
    Asus P6X58D-E Motherboard
    Nvidia GTX 470 Video Card
    Nvidia GT430
    Intel X-25M 80Gb SSD
    2 x Samsung F3 1Tb HDD
    Coolermaster HAF 922 Case
    Corsair 850Watt Modular PSU
    23" Alienware AW2310 + 20" Dell Ultrasharp 2007WFP + 20" Dell Ultrasharp 2009WFP
    Logitech X-540 Speaker System

    699
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (3.4GHz)
    Asus M4A79XTD Mobo
    2x2GB Corsair TwinX XMS3 DDR3 PC3-10666
    2 x 5770 1Gb CrossFire (one of them an XFX in the Batmobile shroud, one of them a Sapphire Vapor-X)
    640Gb Caviar Black
    Silverstone Silver TJ06S-W Temjin Case
    Antec Earthwatts 650W

    Should have gotten the CM 690 case but the Silverstone was on offer that day, and I have this strange weakness wherein I can't help but buy weird cases even though I know they're a PITA and I always regret it. This one has got a bizarre windtunnel thing going on over the processor, so air is shaped over the CPU directly, but then the rest of the case has got 1 80mm fan and no room to fit another one. D'oh. It's also about the size of the monolith from 2001: A Space Oddysey.

    Only bought it with the single 5770 originally, whole lot was around £600-£650 mark about a year and a half ago. Added the second GFX card earlier this year which is lovely, definitely getting Vapor-X cards in future - it's about 12C cooler than the XFX card most of the time, and much quieter. I just wish CrossFire was less of a pain, I think I've spent more time tweaking The Witcher 2 than I have playing it some days :/
