This is my new computer. Built by me :D  My first computer build. Im very happy with how it turned out. No, its not perfect but I did have a budget and im a noob computer builder.

Here are the specs.

Cooler Master Elite 430 MID TOWER Case
Asus Sabertooth P67 Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500k CPU
EVGA GTX 570 SC GPU
Corsair H60 Liquid CPU cooler
Corsair 750 PSU
G.Skill 2x 2GB Ram 1600
WD 500GB hard drive (will add additional hard drive if needed)
ASUS DVD-RW optical drive
ASUS 23" 1080P HD Monitor
5 120mm fans, (2 on H60 Radiator, 1 on door, 1 infront, 1 exhaust on top)
1 50mm Motherboard assist fan
Windows 7 64bit.

Total cost - $1500ish

Here are some pictures. Yes the cable management sucks but im using a non-modular PSU and a mid tower case so cable management is difficult.

Looks pretty boss. Could have gone with a lower-wattage power supply: this thing is OP for one 570, which would be happy with 500 or 550, and not quite enough for 2, which would take 800 or 850.
