I'm sure I won't get 10/10 when I'm finished....
I'm oh so ready to give you a 9.9 when you're done....

I might go full loop WC, but only after I've read up a bit more about it.....and ordering some parts from the US is gonna be a PITA. There are some pretty awesome looking reservoirs that I've seen in the local tech forums.....so, I might take a swing at such a setup.

Sux that you can't get good water cooling parts local but FWIW http://www.koolance.com/default.php may be the best bet when it comes to shipping (7 Years no leak's)

Yeah, they really are just storage drives, and I got em at a great price. Couldn't justify a more expensive drive for their purpose.

3960X + 2x HD7970 must run like a champ

Storage upgrade since last post

Case: Antec 902
Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V Pro
CPU: i5 2500k
Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo
RAM: 8Gb G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-1600
GFX: Radeon HD7970 3Gb
PSU: Coolermaster GX 650W
SSD: Intel 520 Series 120Gb
HDD: WD Caviar Black 1Tb
OS: W7 x64 Home Premium

All stock speeds. See no point in overclocking this rig yet - the system handles everything that I can throw at it to a reasonable degree, no need to stress it aside from when I fancy validating my spending with some benchmark scores

I imagine it's quite small, so it'd be useful for things other than gaming?

Anyway, here's my future system. I should be getting the i7 etc soon!

Case: Coolermaster CM-690 Advanced Dominator II
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 Intel Z68 (Socket 1155) Motherboard
CPU: i7 2600 (@3.4Ghz) with stock cooler
RAM: Corsair Vengence 8GB DDR3 @ 1600Mhz
GPU: Palit GTX 570
PSU: Coolermaster GX 750W
SSD: 120GB OCZ Agility-3 SSD
HDD: 1TB Hitachi HDD @ 7200RPM (unfortunately I don't remember much more detail!)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
Monitor: 24" Hanns-G @ 1920x1080 (again, I don't remember the model!)
Speakers: Logitech X-540 (5.1)

If you will get it in future why dont you wait for 5xx series price to sink OR get the 6xx/7xx series OR HD 7xxx series?

I apologise that I wasn't clear! I plan on getting the i7, motherboard and RAM soon. I already have the solid state drive, hard drive, monitor, GPU, PSU etc. Being 19 and poor I'm upgrading my system one part at a time.

(Also I'd appreciate it if other people were to rate my future system!)
