Default My new system. 6 years of waiting.

CPU - Intel I7 2600K
RAM - Patriot Viper Xtreme Series, Division Viper 2 Edition DDR3, 8GB(2x4GB) 1600MHz Low Latency Kit
Motherboard - ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Socket 1155 Intel Z68
Video - EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked 1024MB GDDR5
SSD - OCZ Vertex 2 SATA II 2.5" 60GB Solid State Drive, Read: 285MB/s, Write: 275MB/s
HDD - WD Black 640GB Sata3 6gb/s
PSU - Cooler Master Silent Pro M850 Modular 850W Power Supply
Case - Thermaltake Mid tower
CPU Cooler - Antec KUHLER H2O 620 Liquid Cooling System
Case Fan - Scythe 120mm 500-2000 RPM

I setup the SSD in the new Z68 as a cache. This thing fly's. Loads CS5 in 5 seconds. I can play any game at max everything. Overclocks to 4.6GHZ with no problem at all. Run's around 64C temp. I run it at 4.0GHZ as my normal setup. Super quiet with the liquid cooling. The HDD is the loudest part LOL.

Just had to brag a bit. Thanks for looking. Please do not CC the photos, they where all hand held with overhead light, shot as I built the PC.

Wow. You went all out on that one. I have a machine with an I7 2600K and SSD as well. It's impressively fast, although for most things, it's not *that* much faster than a Core 2 Quad 9600. Still, the i7 chips are actually less expensive now than the older ones. I don't do any overclocking, either.
