Didn't you start the build after you joined us crazies?
I joined "you crazies" (I prefer to think of it as polluting the gene pool here rather than joining ) because I was planning on building a machine. It was the only way to get what I wanted.[/QUOTE] I am to quote Paul Simon "Still Crazy after all these years". Built my first PC for myself in 2000. Built a bunch for my employer in 1998. Been doing it when I can afford it ever since. Like others it is my hobby and I am somewhat housebound so it gives me something to do. Windows is great as there is always something to fix on 3 systems with multiple OS's and virtual machines. I have learnt a lot over the years. This morning I changed all the plumbing gizmo in the bathroom toilet so now I need to rest. But computing is a great hobby.

To the rescue comes BitFenix's 230mm blue led. Then clean some unneeded parts out of the case like the Antec spot fan and the side panel 2.5" drive mount thing as well had to reverse my power and hdd activity light plugs and voila ! Then not shown I added just over 900gb's of wav music to a 2.5" 5400 rpm spinner and added it alongside my 128 gb Samsung 840 Pro and a Seagate 3 tb Barracuda hdd.
Still struggling my way through my overclock as ASUS's bios is giving me fit's but as I become more and more familiar with it things will improve I'm sure.

Same here although I have only 58GB of mp3s. I've started reripping my CDs as wave so, if I want to change compression in the future, I can start from scratch. So far, I've ripped a bit over 1/4 of my collection and I'm up to 83GB (I expect to take up roughly 300GB by the time I'm finished). I'm reripping to wave because I plan on eventually shredding the physical CDs (they take up way too much room and are heavy).

I dont go OTT on the spending. I replace what needs replacing, and upgrade what needs upgrading. Occasionally ill treat myself to something id like like a new case ect.. but the majority of my system is 2 years old+

My latest purchases was my corsair case (that was just as it looked cool), my corsair k70, i bought as my old keyboard was hardly ever detected so my computer wouldnt boot..

And my only intended purchases in the next few months are a new GPU as my 6950 is showing its age, and another SSD as mine are full

Well I'm basically on a 3 year strategy - every 3 or so I do major upgrades to my system - MB, CPU, RAM. This allows me to stay current while also maintaining a decent backup system as I move my old parts to it.

Been doing that for years. If I had another X58 board I could build another system using my i7-930 chip

Point is I tend not to sell my old parts. Perhaps I need to start as I've got a lot of stuff just collecting dust

Good choice in fan Alan, I had the 200mm version of the Spectre Pro in my last case and they're really good, very quiet and move loads of air
