This is my main gaming/photo editing rig. Built in 2010 and upgraded in 2012 to replace the RAM (2GBx4 OCZ Gold Low Voltage 1.35V 1600) and add in the SSD. I also upgraded the monitor at the same time.

Some hard drive swaps were made in 2013, replacing the original 500GB Barracuda with a 2TB WD Green.

Running well this rig will hopefully keep me happy for a few more years.

Sorry about the delay, I would have no issues recommending the Gigabyte Aivia Osmium, it has served me well. Howeverthe cost and scarcity makes it something you really only want to be getting if you are trying to match your peripherals.
