So I made up my mind and decided to buy a new case. While I was there I picked up a new graphics card as well. My palit gtx460 was crapping out so it was time to upgrade.

The case I picked up was the Corsair 800D, this thing has so much room. Pictures really do not help you understand how much room this thing has. I took everything else out of my old computer except the gpu and psu. I bought the power supply earlier this week and was waiting to pick up the case to install everything.

The install took about 4 hours to get everything and I'm testing the water loop right now for leaks. I have never had a leak before but I'm still testing to be on the safe side.

So the things I just purchased are as follows. EVGA GTX570, I'm planing on going and picking up another one this week or next to run in SLI. I have never had a computer that was just awesome so I'm doing it this time around. I also purchased a Corsair TX750, I figured this would be enough to run both cards and my loop with out any problems. And the last thing I bought was the case, which I could not be happier about.

Now the things that I already had were, Biostar TP67XE mb, Vertex 2 ssd 120 gig, G.Skill pi edition 4gig, rasa kit with the 240 rad, and one overclocked i5-2500k to 4.5mhz.

Things I want to get in the future, another gtx570 and I was thinking about getting the sabertooth p67 mother board. I will be picking up another rad (360 for the top) and water blocks for the 2 gpu's. I will be picking up a new res and pump and taking out the res/pump combo. Just not sure what I'm going to get yet. Any suggestions would be nice.

When I get a chance I will upload some pictures of the build, I have phone pictures right now but I also want to get some good pictures of the finished build.
