    Hey guys, I narrowed my choices down to 1, 2 and 4. Thanks for the picks so far :)

    definately don't go for number 4. Seeing it among the other stuff you picked, it stands out, but on the case i think it will look boring and flat.

    I think number 1 will look best, maybe wrap it over the top too, or contain it inside a thick black frame with rounded corners like the windows on the other side have.

    Out of all these choices, i think i'd have gone with number 12.

    good luck

    I quite like 4, as it's just straight lines, which I do love, I'm a fan of simplicity.. Your idea with 1 is great! A wrap over could look damn great! Thanks for that one!

    I must say, those speakers are starting to look really good! Man, this is a hard choice :(

    Maybe I should just make all the ones I like and rotate them every few months :p

    Thanks guys! :D

    Here's a small update. I got tired of the case just sitting around gathering dust, so I slapped my aircooled rig in there. I can't run water until I fix my radiator (It has two small leaks, and I'm way too busy to actually care at the moment).

    So here are the pics.

    Things look pretty neat inside don't they? :D (Ignore that cable on the right that popped out)

    And one last party shot:

    this is bugging me, what graphics cards are those? it looks like a 7950GX2 thats been stretched over a few more PCI slots, however they have both got there own PCI-E connectors. there is a linking cable between them aswell.

    im thinking it maybe a member of the Quadro family for some reason..

    i knew somthing wasn't right, the top card has the SLI bridge connector but the bottom doesn't, but there still linked via the green cable.

    why the spacer kit? you intending to water cool once the rad is sorted out?

    oh i love the colour theme, looks clean and smart!

    Man the Paint job is Killer. And what Burnout21 Said what those cards are. I really love the white black theme, but on the last photo that is real or you edit it?

    EDIT: aha GX2 but 9800GX2 or 7950GX2 ?

    CK there 7950GX2, not the 9800GX2 as the cores face each other on the 9800GX2
