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.
