UPDATE 9/19/2011*** New pics of my workstation at the bottom of this post. Still waiting on 3 Blue LED lights to come in, and my girlfriend's camera to give you guys some real good pics of my rig on the inside. I can tell you all right now, though, that it is VERY nice, and I'm really proud of my work
UPDATE ** 9/11/2011 Some pics from tonight when I started to clean my room.
My friend moved out, this is his side where his bed was. I took it out tonight.
This is where my bed goes, the frame broke a week ago so I took it out, junk under my bed.
A look at my room out the door before I started cleaning. Don't call hoarders just yet
Where my desk was, before I moved it.
Where my desk will be. Went out and bought a rug because the floor is all scratched up, I live in an old colonial house and the floors sink into the middle, so my chair always rolls into the middle of the room. A rug will (hopefully) fix that.
I also plan on painting the trim and doors a tan/beige color because the white looks awful. I painted the room red about a year ago and never finished the trim
I'll be finishing up cleaning and possibly painting the trim and doors tomorrow. This is all I got for now.
**Update** 9/13/2011 Finished painting the trim, moved most of the room around, still not 100% clean but it's getting there.
I got all of the parts, except the case today. Unfortunately my case will be arriving Friday instead of Wednesday.
Here's a list of my parts with a couple of pictures;
Intel Core i5-2500k
8GB DDR3 1866mhz 1.5v Corsair Vengeance RAM
Asus Sabertooth P67 LGA 1155 Motherboard
Corsair AX850 modular 80+ gold power supply
240GB Mushkin Chronos Sata III 6.0gp/s SSD drive
1TB Samsung Spinpoint 7200RPM HDD
Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler
Scythe Kaze Master analog 12-fan controller.
Cheap Samsung DVD burner
2x Logysis UV Cold Cathode 12"
1x 140mm GELID UV Blue fan
1x Copy of Windows 7 home premium 64-bit (not pictured)
UPDATE ** 9/19/2011 Pictures of my workstation
Moved my desk over to another part of the room, got a sweet new chair. There's also an ottoman underneath my desk to rest my legs on to lay back and relax, but you can't see it. Excuse the bad quality, they're with my phone.
I'm waiting on 3 blue LED fans for the top of the case to come in before I really take any pictures of the PC itself. It's still not 100% ready. I *bleep*ed up painting the fans as well, just a bit. I missed parts of them (and hit the wrong parts of them), but it's really not bad or noticeable to me so I won't be painting them again.
I'll also be buying a new desk in the coming weeks. I have my eye on the Ikea Galant. My current desk isn't large enough to hold my 50" Plasma as well as my PC, so I have my PC on a separate white dresser, which I hate. I'll have pics of these when I get the desk, most likely in 2 or 3 weeks.

Yes, he was. My girlfriend is coming over in a few minutes so I should have pictures up in no time!

Wow! Your roommate was extremely messy. LOL
Sep 17, 11 at 3:31am
Everything built, pics up!

Alright guys new pictures, parts came today. I also got my girlfriend's Nikon, so no more shoddy pictures with terrible LED flash from that crappy digital camera I was using to shoot my room before I got my parts and started cleaning.
Sep 12, 11 at 10:12pm
Fixed the pictures! More coming tonight.
Sep 12, 11 at 3:19am
Yes when you put them in SLI (or Crossfire for AMD). Updated with some pictures for tonight.
EDIT: The pics pretty much failed, tried uploading them all at once and that's the only option they gave me, but I'll do it individually and upload them again tomorrow, I'm too tired right now and this laptop is almost dead.

So the cards have a stacking effect?
Sep 12, 11 at 1:00am
Almost double the performance of just one of them, for cheaper
My two GTX 570's are equivalent (if not better) than a GTX 590, for only $650 instead of $750.
Tonight I'll upload some pics of my room and how terribly messy it was before, since this thread will also include not only the PC itself but the room it's in and what I'm doing to it.
