Default Latest Client Build

This is actually my first "real" client build What I mean by that is that the client gave me the money and permission to buy, modify, overclock and do whatever-I-please. He also gave me a bit of cash so I could pocket. Previously, I would just install the components that they would buy in there house - I never did a complete build from scratch (other than my own) for someone as a "job". Usually I put together some quick 'sub-$500 systems' for friends and family. I am really excited to do this, as not much work is going down on Total Eclipse as I am waiting for Charles at MurderMod to get the rest of my stuff...

I would like everyone to note that the main priority for this build is aesthetics. He want's it to "look better than it runs." But it will run great! However, there will still be some nice parts

Updated list - March 17, 2010
Case: SilverStone Raven RV02
Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D (Vanilla)
Processor: Intel Core i5 750
Cooling: ThermalRight VenomousX w/ 2 CoolerMaster R4s'
RAM: G.Skill Perfect Storms (or are they the PI ones) There the 2133MHz ones.
GPU: Sapphire 5850 TOXIC
PSU: SilverStone Strider 1000W Plus (MDPC Treatment)
HDD: Two(2) Western Digital Black Caviar 1TB in RAID 0
DVD/ Blu Ray: OEM Samsung DVD Burner, Retail Samsing Blu-Ray Reader

As you can see this is going to be all black and blue. I am going to use two different shades of MDPC blue sleeve to give it a nice contrast. Not to mention that the 5850 TOXIC will go good - especially over the normal red RADEON piece on the cards.

I have a UV and a Blue CCFL lying around. Ill try them out in various ways and see how the client likes it/ which ones he prefers.

The entire concept and idea of this build started with a 5850 Toxic. Once I showed him the Vapor-X and Toxic cards, he fell in love with them Once I scored one of these cards at NCIX (even after they said it was backordered ) we went from there. We had the idea of a Black and Blue build, but the video card was the hardest part. You know, the red Radeon just didnt match a thing...
