This is a computer build i prepared for my neighbour. He was complaining about how slow his system was and he wanted to be able to play today's games with some eye candy. I decided to select a few affordable components in order to prepare a decent gaming system. Below are a few pictures of the 90% finished system.

To finish this system up completely, i will be doing some cable sleeving, probably the fan cables, frontpanel cables, sata cable etc and i will also be adding a sidepanel window to take most profit of the inside view. 

Details of this system:

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 925 C3 (2.8GHz/8MB/95WTDP)
Mainboard: Gigabyte MA785GT-UD3H AM3 DDR3 Link
Memory: G.Skill HK Series 4 Go (2x2Go) DDR3-SDRAM PC3-10600 F3-10600CL8D-4GBHK
Graphics: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5770 1Go DDR5 DX11 (v1)
Heatsink: Zerotherm Nirvana Premium 120
Power Supply: Corsair TX650W (52A on 12v rail so its ready for a second 5770 if needed)
Hard Drive: Seagate 7200.12 500GB 16M SII (very slim)
Fans: Hiper Flow 2x120mm Link
Case: NZXT Gamma (unbeatable for the price, black finish inside etc...)

The total price is very affordable and this system can play any present game with all the eye candy without trouble and up to 1920x1080.
This system is also low power consumption, thanks to the C2/C3 steppings from the procesor and the low power needed of the 5770.
I might post some benchmark results in the futur but nothing detailed, probably a 3dmark06, Vantage and Unigine Heaven.

There is also a little slideshow from my youtube channel.

Horry shet SFKILLA this looks amazing its sooo clean! I have the same case and I was wondering how you hid the cables? Im new to pc building just fin mine actually everything works but theres like an ugly rats nest under my mobo x(



Cable management is really part of the fun with the NZXT gamma case. I'll try to post a few pics of the back of the case, so, you'll be able to see the motorways i had to build in order to make it fit, but it fits perfectly, just took a bit of time and patience, but mostly some passion ;)

I'm aware that older beta builds have graphic driver problems, so installing windows 7 final will probably solve your problem. however, its nice to hear its running fine :)

No problem Killa

Systems been great for 90% of the time. Recently had some game instability thats been traced to graphics driver issues (apparently lines getting crossed and passing bad data into abstraction layer or something like that)

Im still on the RC build though so Im going to intall my proper OS from scratch and try reinstalling the graphics on that to solve it. Will let you know how it is.
