Sorry guys, been having too much fun with this beast. Here's several pictures:

This last picture has the ATX 12v power cord going to the motherboard, didn't have that plugged in earlier so it didn't work.

And my last few pictures of the exterior, and stickers!

And my extremely slow internet speed after downloading DiRT 3 and Deus Ex: HR, it does this with huge downloads. Took me several hours for this damn thing. Through ETHERNET!!!

Pretty good cable management compare to mines it just seems impossible to truly hide all those cables in a mid tower

The build is good except I'm iffy on the ECO cooler. I've read up that it has exploded for many people and wasted their builds by leaking onto their motherboard and video cards and such. One guy had his entire $2K build destroyed.

It happens. If you want a good air cooler, get the Noctua DH14. These things are usually either or. My next build will definitely be with a Corsair 650D or even 800D.

Hey just wondering how long exactly is the sapphire 6850? I'm planning on getting the same case and same card, but I can't find the specifications anywhere (not even on the sapphire website) and I know that the m59 is a close fit with large video cards....anyway, I can see that you fit it in there okay with room to spare....
Actually, I just saw on amazon that the card is listed as 11.5 inches...
Pretty sure that's not true..
Anyway, any help is appreciated and really nice build. I can't wait to build mine

Yeah that isn't true. I'll check with my handy ruler!

The card is 23cm long installed so minus the prob 2cm of bracket. In this case, there is about 5cm between the bays and the card.

Thanks so much! Can't wait to put together my build.
So far it looks like this:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090t
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB 7200rpm
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850
Power Supply: Corsair Enthusiast TX750 V2 750w
RAM: G.Skill 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600
Case: NZXT M59
OS: Windows 7
And a few additional case fans.....

Probably going to get everything after Christmas....hopefully nothing new comes out that makes me rethink all my components.....best thing is things getting cheaper!! (My build is around 950$ with a 20 inch monitor)

Either ditch the case or get a modular PSU. Cable management is near impossible.
