Yea, I could tell it was loud by just looking at it.

Also is that a SATA DVD/CD ROM drive? Your computer looks like it doesn't have enough wires to turn on. Mine looks like that now, but there is no PSU in it

I will post images and performance tests as soon as possible!

SHOW US SOME 3DMARK BUD!!
There is a high difference between Xfire and CF (Crossfire). Xfire is a program, and Crossfire (Or CF) is the term used for linking graphicscards from ATi. It's nVidias counterpart from SLi.

Like me! I'm proud being 16, and financing this rig with a $7/hour job. Although I've gotta get some money for a car, so I'm getting some new fans, a Sunbeam NUUO, a 20" WS LCD, and then calling it quits for a while.

Now, to the topic at hand...

*super jealous*.. It's so purty... and the BT should handle it fine, since it's 65nm and has a stock voltage of like 1.2v...

Also I have another question. I have a HDTV that has just normal 5.1 surround sound in my room, and I want to hook the computer up, and use the TV as a monitor, and the surround sound for the speakers, so would I need that "xplosion 7.1" card to do this?
yes, you would need the "xplosion 7.1"
it is currently the ONLY pc sound card that offers dolby digital encoding, therefore it is the only card that will give TRUE surround sound when hooked up to a home theater.
take my advice(i dont use it anyway), i have done a TON of research, and this is the only card (currently) that will do this. this is the one i plan on getting because i have a kicka$$ dolby 6.1 home theater system in my room (600 WATTS! and i have a klipsch 400 watt sub hooked up to it... you bet halo sounds real!)

Ok, I will really look hard into this if I plan on hooking it up, thanks for the info.

Yup, 16 here too, and I am proud to say I bought every component. But please, a word of advice, do not get a NUUO, please! You will regret it when it fails and kills your whole rig, or a power serge destroys your PC when the PSU was supposed to take the fall. There are much better PSUs that you can get for relatively the same price.

Wow, your rig looks amazing. The SATA DVDR really helps with elimanating bulky caples. Hopefully my rig will be as clean as yours. Also, is that WC kit any good? Are you still selling it?

The mobo I got is the Gigabyte DS3, because it is really proven to overclock the E6400 well, maxing out at 450-500FSB area (3.6-4.0ghz)

Yea I think the main difference is CF support, but I could be wrong.
