*I also apologize for the crappy pictures. They were all taken with my phone with flash on, so the white balance was all messed up. I fixed them a bit in Photoshop but nothing too serious.

Mine isn't quite as fancy but it was very fun getting the parts and (with a lot of help) putting it all together
Thats AWESOME Good Luck when you play your first game on it,Fabuloso, and good on you.
How do you estimate or work out the size of the power-pack required for this kind of horsepower???.lol
Try this out. It is a PSU calculator. When I run my system I almost max out 650W.
Just so you have an idea here are my system stats:
Intel Core 2 Quad 9400 (OC'd at 3GHZ) - Stock Cooler
Saphire AMD 6950
8G OCZ PC-6400
MSI P45 Platinum (motherboard)
OCZ 750W Silencer PSU
Antec 300 - 1 120mm fan & 4 80mm fans
ACER S231HL - 1920 x 1080
The monitor and case do not really apply the PSU usage, but I just put up the same characteristics as were originally posted by Ho-oh. His is clearly a higher end, so I estimate that he may have greater need.
