I'll make sure to get pictures once it's all put together. Which will hopefully be within a few weeks.

Since I built this rig for Diablo 3, I've since tested it within the game and am happy to report that I experience absolutely NO LAG! SO HAPPY!

Mathieu, Thank you SO MUCH for this awesome website. It made putting together a computer so much easier than buying a "combo" at Newegg and hoping for the best.
