Hey community! This is my current gaming build.

I built it a few months ago on a few excessive sales (All from Micro Center), which is why some parts may seem a bit excessive. These pictures don't have the SSD yet, which was installed last month.

Specs
i5-4670K currently at 4.2GHz ($200)
Cooler Master Seidon 120M ($40)
Asrock Z87 Extreme4 ($115)
16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz CL9 ($110)
Asus GTX 670 4GB, OC'ed to 1130MHz/6858MHz ($244, I got REALLY lucky)
WD Green 2TB HDD ($100)
Samsung 840 Series 120GB ($100)
Corsair CX750 PSU ($60)
Zalman Z11 Plus mid-tower case ($60)
Assorted lights ($20)
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (Already had a copy)

Thoughts?

I'm thinking about either getting another GTX 670 or selling my current one for a Radeon 9970 when it's released. What do you guys think will be the better option?

Very nice! I built my z11 last night. Would ditch the cathode though. I got some adhesive led strips for £2 on eBay that molexs up with the HDD exhaust fans. :)

I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad about DirectX dying. On one hand, I know that I didn't get a card that will be outdated quickly; on the other, DirectX accelerated graphics won't advance.

I'll give $10 to anyone who can beat me in 3DMark with a system that was $1000 or less.

Found a few FULLY REFERENCE GeForce cards in a Best Buy. Also found a GeForce misspelling by Best Buy employees.

Very slow service, even with 3 people attending to just me. Purposely used very little ingredients in my sub, so save money, I suppose. The fountain drinks clearly have a lot of water mixed in.
