Description

Back in 2010, my wife got her "old" computer from a workplace that shut down, and swapped the PSU for a beefy one, put in a GTX 560, migrated everything to a 750GB drive, and used it for a while, and it was fine.

But with Battlefield 3, things were getting slow, so it's time to upgrade. Essentially the only part remaining from the Dell now is the optical drive.

Nice monitor, that thing looks like a beast. But 820 dollars? I'm not sure it's worth it for that price.

Yeah, it's a bit of a luxury for home.. I used to have it at work, and was using it 7 hours per day, 5 days per week, but got a new job, so it lives at home now.

I am not sure I would have routed the mothebroard secondary power cable and the GPU power cables the same way you did, but for a non modular PSU, wonderful job. I almost always recommend modular PSU's but in this case non-modular did not keep the case from looking very clean and neat. Great build!

If I was buying new, I would have totally got a modular, but this was re-used from the first upgrade to the Dell, so no point spending money if it works and looks ok. The cable bugs me a bit too, but buying extensions to hide them better is likely to be $20 or so, and again, if I don't need to spend it...

That's pretty much exactly what I want to do to mine, I just ordered a Vostro from Newegg with some parts and I plan on making it game suitable.
