    I built mine in 2009 I think it was tho I'm not itching to upgrade for gaming performance since nothing out there is unplayable. Maybe a few games have one or two setting turned down but nothing serious. Im really looking to add HDD's and get a proper file server up and running. Problem is just the cost of Disks. I'm guessing the last few years really spoilt us price wise. Hopefully get a job in the summer and won't care nearly as much paying the current price. I'm almost there happy with my laptop, Desktop will do till next gen consoles and I'll eventually have my file storage sorted soon enough.

    Happy with my i7 930 @ 4.2, 256gb M4 and just popped in a GTX 670 all water cooled in a TJ11 although just built an i5 3570 k system for a friend overclocked @ 4.5 and it's giving me the upgrade itch lol

    Okay, after splurging way too much cash, I'm basically there. I've done the following:

    Antec TruePower 650W ---> Corsair AX750 + red sleeved cabling
    Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z (Z68) ---> Asus Maximus V Gene (Z77)
    GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB ---> GeForce GTX 680 2GB Superclocked
    Corsair F60 + 500GB HD ---> 256GB M4 & 128GB M4

    The only last thing to do is swap the 2500K out for a 3570K, once the bank balance recovers.

    i'm happy with mine with the exception of two things:
    - i wish it was less messy, though as the case is closed - not too fussed.
    - i wish my OC was higher...

    Looking to upgrade my case, I am not happy with it anymore. It's really messy and compact. Probably going to look at getting a Corsair Obsidian 650D.
