Your post made it blush and show a tear or two

Tbh, at that point, your rig has obviously had a full and worthwhile life, you could consider selling your rig either as parts or as a whole to fund your new rig.
I'd also like to go all out on the next build, probably make use of my favourite etailers finance option to buy now pay in 6/12 months. I want the TJ07 but its sort of had its time now (I feel that more so because of the replacement TJ11 or whatever being out...£400 though) or the Corsair 800D
Yeah I'd probably buy the whole new rig, but keep this one until its built so I can spend more time cable tidying, case modding and the like
Everyone here knows that when you go from an old OEM pc to a new build, you shove everything in that case as soon as you can Edited by SgtMunky - 7/19/11 at 1:30am
