I did not say anything was wrong with it....was just curious. 5770 are good cards for moderate gaming.

umm it is. There are a ton of cables behind the other case plate. If i tried to cram anymore in there it would deform the case and possibly the mobo tray.

I am currently looking at that mobo for my new i7. Let me know how it performs. I've read some good reviews, but also some with problems. Perhaps a bad batch, but it looks promising.

I haven't had any issues yet and about the only things i haven't maxed out is the cpu socket and pci-e x16 slots. But i dohave 6 sticks of ram and it's running fine. with 7 Sata Devices.

Thanks for nice pics of the Antec 1200.
I'm strongly considering this case....my Antec 300 is driving me nuts...not enough room around for proper cable management.

Nice rig! Of course, me being a gamer, I would've cut on the SSD (2 instead of 4) craze and bought a flagship GFX card, especially if you say that you won't put more money on it for the next 3 years...I realise that you mention the XFX5850 wasn't available....sad...thing is, most people drool over Flagship cards and SLI/Crossfire setups...

Couldn't you sell 2 SSDs and get rid of the 5770, for the sake of getting a 5870 (vapor-X or something)? I know the XFX 5870s reference are really hard to find...I know it's your rig, not mine...
