Well for your motherboard, it must be good cause it's a PRO :)

That CPU stands out like a big pimple right in the middle of your forehead.

And that monitor, it does suck - I have it too! I'm currently using my mum and dad's Hitachi just because I managed to convince them I was "borrowing" it :)

HIS HD 2900XT 850/920
Dual setup Samsung SyncMaster226BW

X-fi xtremegamer
OCz Platinum XTC 4GB 800MHz ram
Antec Nine Hundread Case
Z-5300e 5.1 speakers
Keyboard from Benq, it's supposedly designed by BMW. I have my doubts, but I like it either way.

Watercooling setup:

FuZion waterblock
PA 120.3
Micro Resevoir from swiftec
MasterClear tubing and a bit of Tygon
Swiftec Coils

I plan on the following upgrades in the next 2-3 months:

As for my graphics cards, I'm waiting for the G100 or the R700 card to consider an upgrade. Right now this GPU is more then enough umph.

Just curious James, why have you selected the TJ07-BW? I can't see what makes it a $300 case or is even better than your current Antec 900 other than being full tower.


Also, I don't see why anyone would need two PSU bays.

I might even get a stacker as they seem to go on sale for $150.

The main reason why I like this case so much is because I can mount my PA120.3 rad in the bottom of the case, which would make my build a lot cleaner. I plan on going to LAN parties soon and the way my rad is currently mounted will not work for transportation. Also, I cannot stand the Antec 900 in terms of cable management. There are ways to hide cables and I could do it (it would be a large modding project), but the end result is that I'm going to need more space for more hard drives in the future, so I might as well upgrade now. In my cases current state, I will only be able to place 3 hard drive in there (my pump is located in the lower section).

Also, I don't see why anyone would need two PSU bays.

You wouldn't. Some people like to overestimate the amount of power they really need.
