    Good job, sir. For a second I thought the picture of the case with the side panel open is inverted. Nice read and thanks.

    Finally built a new system this past February, but had to really cut corners to save costs. Hope to replace the GPU and PSU soon, but everything else is serviceable.

    HIS Radeon HD 6570 & Antec Basiq 430W :(
