I've owned this iMac 27" computer for about a year now, and I thought I might as well put it to good use instead of spending more and getting a separate monitor. 2560x1440 LED & IPS is pretty awesome IMO!

First of all can you delete some of the ------ things from the end cuz there are way too many of them.

Back to the actual build. Any mod plans or anything special like that?

Not really, although I might mod my HAF 922 case by putting a side panel window, but that's it for the time being.

My cousin works for Intel and he was able to get it for me, and let me have it for a cheaper price.

Thanks! And yes the card is definitely huge, it's 11 inches long! So it's even larger than the gtx 580.

I did a lot of research as to what boot drive is fastest for the price, and the c300 was my sweet spot!
