Default My fully built system ! (Pictures inside)

Hello everyone,

The following are some pictures of my newly built PC. I've been planning this built for quite sometime.
Here you go:


A quick overview.


My Thermaltake case.


How to fit a GTX 260

Forgive the unclean mouse , it's just I sweat alot .
On the left is the PCI card holder which I had to remove for the GTX 260 to fit inside.


Thermaltake CPU cooler also. I'm getting 37-40 degrees idle temps.


GTX 260 which is around 25cm in length. Any idea what that speaker icon is next to the power?


Newly arrived 750W PSU at the top.



When I changed my PSU, my 3DMark06 score increased from 12122 to 12692 which really catches your attention. I am not sure if its because the GTX 260 is being well fed now .





I also realised that on +12V i was getting sometimes ranges between 11.83 and 11.92 but now with the 750W I am getting ranges of 11.99 and 12.04.



I would like to thank everyone who helped me with my previous post

I've got the same case, same CPU and same GTX260 card.

Believe it or not I had to FILE a gap in the HDD caddy to fit the GTX260 in. I thought at the time that I had spent so much money putting this system together and here I was filing a hole to make a gfx card fit.

Luckily all went well and the system works excellently. Very happy chappy atm.

I hope you enjoy your new system too.

Cheers

Hehe , and I also thought this case would be enough for any VGA .
Thankfully also, I didn't face too much of a problem fitting the GTX 260 in .
