Here is my machine. I wanted a gaming computer that would tie in nicely with my home entertainment system, whilst being a beast. The HDD is something I had lying around and will most likely swap it out for something bigger/faster/better. The mother board is cheap because it was an open box item from micro center. It ran for a week with no issues so I doubt there are any surprises in store for me, even so it still carries the almighty warranty. What little I've gotten to play is a definite upgrade from my old machine and I look forward to clearing out some game backlog. Damn you Steam sales.
Cable routing could be a little better, I was mostly concerned with getting everything tucked away in the back and creating a nice void for air to travel in. BD drive is a little noisier than I anticipated when using for movie play back, but that's what ripping is for.
