    Looks like it will be a good looking build but really..ú450 or $650 for that case? Seems a bit steep. How are you going to go about doing the wire management with nowhere to route anything?
    Oh, you can accomplish anything by throwing money at it. I assume that without the actual comptuer hardware, the setup will be up in the 1500$ range. After everything is installed and all the cool flashing lights are installed it will probably be upwards of 3500$. Hooray for capitalism!

    Guess it would be nice to have your own custom case. As john edwards always says "its not fun to build computers over 1000$" because you really don't need to budget anything.

    I have a pretty good computer and I spent way too much on it, but this guy still has spent more than me. You can get a fuck awesome computer for 1500$ If I had that much money, I would MAKE my own case and not have some other company do it for me.

    Most of us don't have the required tools to make, large perfectly measured aluminum cases. Even if I did, or you for that matter, I doubt the result would be anywhere near as good as a case from MM, who do it for a living. The 'lights' budget consists of around ú20. If you really think, that the only fun in building computers is budgeting, you're seriously misguided

    Comparing this build in US dollars doesn't mean shit, as you get so much less for your money in the UK when buying hardware, esp with the current fuck-up economic situation.
    To this end, I've decided I'm not posting prices for anything in the build. There is always some whiney kid who doesn't like it

    I miss the 2:1 ratio :/ People keep on about $500 builds, I'd LOVE to be able to import stuff and make something worth even mentioning for ú300. At the old rate, that would've basically been the build + shipping, now its basically the same price or more to import stuff.

    You should definitely sue for copyright infringement then claim all the rights to the computer.

    My computer costed me $1500 to build and it only has an HD4850, E8400, etc. :(

    In total with taxes and shipping and extra costs for upkeep and replacements and wireless networking it has been well over $2000 if not approaching $2300ish.

    I hope to god it will be, since he's got so much money to spend on it and it's a new generation of hardware. But come on Luke, that's a pretty childish post. Don't spread your garbage from one thread to another.

    And I hate front panel connectors. The only one I have plugged in is my power button. My indicator that it's on are the fans lol.

    ... I use the reset button when your computer hard locks?

    And I use all of the front panel connectors... HDD LED can be helpful.

    Exactly...it happens sometimes, and it's pretty easy to just reach over and click the button down for less than a second.

    I just hold down the power button, that and a single USB and SD card slot are the only things I use on my PC's front but I still have Headphone, mic, firewire, 2 USBs, every card reader under the sun none of which I use.

    Been pretty busy the last few days with unrelated things so I've not had time to post a update until now, but things are progressing well...

    Since last update I've cable braided all 9 fan leads (hours of soul destroying work) and fitted the fans, radiators and fan guards to the case.

    I also received the reservoirs and CPU block
