Looks nice but it's a little bit of a shame that you've edited the case so much. It's not really an NES case if you cut it up and such.

But, it's still a great compact build.

I feel like an oddball. Everyone listens to intelligent, thought provoking music or blues or jazz. I listen to metal - and chiptunes. I feel like an idiot.

I'd say keep the job you have whilst looking for other options. Being unemployed just because it wasn't the job you wanted isn't a good or wise idea. I've been there, so I know how it feels to miss...

THey're not bad, just that they don't break any records. They're pretty quiet and do a reasonable job of cooling - they're just not as good as something like the DirectCU coolers or twinfrozr.

THe DD are quite good aftermarket coolers, they're pretty quiet and they don't draw too much power - with overclocking both CPU and GPU you'd probably draw just over 500w. Any reason you're going for...

Games that use large textures and a large amount of scripts in one load (like the aforementioned Skyrim) use more Vram. So, adding an extra gpu won't help with vram intensive games. I have a 4GB card...

650W is fine. Although this gen isn't that much more powerful, it is much more power efficient. IT means that you don't need monster PSUs for a single GPU configuration. 750w is overkill for a GTX...

I'd love to see this in a black version, I really like the looks of these. Blowers work better in my case as well, which is why my 670 Direct CU II gets pretty toasty.
