    Holy crap. That'll run nice!

    I do note that you're running Win 7, as would I. . .
    Siggy.

    Very nice system. I just might need to grab one of those SSD for my PC. You may also want to consider buying some spare pants too. You will likely make a few messes :P

    let us know how that sapphire graphics card is. always wonedered if they were any good.

    ill say i have an hd 7970 that runs so much cooler than my 6950 i had to turn on the heat to get warm in the room. I dont notice a huge fps jump in games, BUT i do notice a smoother game somehow.

    im sure the 7950 will treat you right. still not sure about ssd hdds, the memory is just so much lower still, i cant wrap my head around speed vs memory lol

    congrats and enjoy buddy!

    Looks pretty badass to me. Not sure about the PSU though. I would go with a Corsair just because I am a fan of their products and have had no issues with mine. Also if you are concerned about fan noise do a little research on how loud your graphics card is. Some of them are loud as fuck while others are really quiet otherwise they run the same.

    I'm not sure about the color. I think I would have gone with yellow.

    Thats a truth for sure. I can verify the 79XX series is much quieter than the 69XX series of VC.

    Some companies swap the cooling out to a quieter option. I run the http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/N...TX680DC2T2GD5/

    I can't hear it. It's about 18" from my head and my case fans are loud enough to tell it's running but this thing never gets loud enough to hear.
