    Mine cost exactly 500 US dollars. (well, 504.37 rounded is 500) My motherboard is also a Gigabyte S series. I want to overclock my CPU but am afraid to buy the wrong kind of cooler to do so.

    All cost around $1,000 (I have a job). Should have gone with the 6870, but oh well.. Need to find a good pair of headphones now. Also a little annoyed that Ubuntu does not have support for 6xxx series cards (have a dual boot). But other than that, along with frequent random restarts, this computer is pretty good.

    Another one of these threads? Meh... anyway:

    Case: Antec 1200
    MoBo: Asus Rampage Extreme
    CPU: Intel C2D E8400 (clocked as a 8600).
    Cooler: Scythe Kama Angle (triple fan configuration)
    RAM: 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600Mhz (clocked at 1333Mhz)
    GPU: ATI/AMD Radeon HD 4870
    PSU: Enermax Galaxy DxX 1000W
    HDD: 2x1TB Samsung Spinpoint F1, 1x80GB IDE (disabled - alternate OS for running hacks)
    Others: LG DVD drive, Card reader+USB bay.

    I could list all the external drives and other random stuff, but it's not really part of the computer build itself. I could also list my other computers/laptops, but meh.
    EDIT: if anybody is wondering about the overkill PSU for a relatively underwhelming rig, it's because it was used to test various parts when building high-end computers for other people, including quad-GPU rigs.

    Mobo: XFX 790i Sli mobo
    CPU: Intel e8400 (now @ stock, highly recommend, some ppl got this thing at 4 Ghz with liquid cooling)
    RAM: i honestly forgot what type, i got as a gift, and i cnt be bothered checking, yet i know its 4GB of DDR3
    GPU: XFX GTX 280 in Sli (2 of them basically)
    HDD: 2 1TB Western Digital
    Monitor: 32" TV [​IMG]
    LG Blu-Ray drive

    no extra cooling, just some odd case fans here and there

    I would say i use this PC as my main media player, cinema thing - i also enjoy the odd FPS online on this PC, yet mainly i operate on a much lower spec PC, Some Intel mobo, 2 GB ram, 8800 GT, and 500GB HDD - all i really need.

    PowerLevel: 9001
    Current build:
    Intel E8400 @ Stock
    ASUS P5Q-E
    OCZ 2GB DDR2 (2x - total 4GB)
    ASUS GeForce GTX260 SP216
    Western Digital 320GB SATA II
    Crappy 20$ 550W PSU (works wonders!)
    Pioneer SATA DVD Burner
    ASUS Vento Case (a cheap small model. I had to cut out some steel inside to fit my GTX260)

    Still runs almost everything on Ultra-High, even if it's a single GFX-card system.

    Probable future build (might change something around):
    Intel Sandy Bridge EP with LGA 2011 (still dunno what model, as they're yet to be released)
    ASUS hi-range LGA2011 Motherboard with UEFI bios (I totally want one)
    4x 4GB DDR3 (total 16GB, I guess they'll be enough)
    Good SSD as boot-drive
    1TB SATA3 drive for storage
    GeForce GTX560/565 (or whatever mid-high GFX card they'll get out in Q4 2011)
    Modular Powersupply and an Antec (or something high-end) case if I feel like wasting money on something non-essential.

    I can't wait for the LGA2011 Sandy Bridges to be released [​IMG]
