Tier 6-7 Build Finally Complete
I finally bought and put together my first ever build!!! Surprisingly I didn't have too many problems during my build and Windows 7 installation. Hopefully I won't have any major problems when I update the drivers and start installing other programs.

Well here are the specs for my buikd:

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA 1155 Processor
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard
NZXT HAVIK-140 CPU Cooler w. Dual 140mm Fans
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB
ASUS GTX670-DC2T-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670
SeaSonic X750 Gold
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB
Crucial 256 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s
Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x SATA Internal DVD+/-RW Drive
Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Mid-Tower Gaming Case
ASUS PCI 5.1 Channel Sound Card XONAR_DG
Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
Asus VH238H Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit (Full) System Builder DVD 1 Pack

Got this all for about $1750 after rebates.

Pictures are ready! I have a link to the album for them (since I took way too many to post). Please let me know if it doesn't work. Any feedback on cable management, build quality, etc. would be helpful for any future builds for myself, friends, or family. Also, would you guys recommend putting in 4 x 120mm side fans (probably white LED) on the side mesh to increase airflow as well as visual asthetics?

RE: Tier 6-7 Build Finally Complete
I must say that looks good. very good cable management on both sides,semi or modular psu on mid tower case, the white and red leds looks great behind the case like the picture 207, the picture 211 looks like a front cover for the mainstream gaming pcs the best picture IMO. However. there are cons like those cables above the heat sink but no biggie.
--Good Job--
