I was excited to wake up on sat and wait for my new system, and sure enough it came. everything started up perfectly. only problem i had was the two top fans were not going when i started it up. wasnt a big deal, all i had to do was open it up and plug in the cable. im VERY satisfied with the performance and quality of this computer!!!

Inside is the Intel i7 940 overclocked to 3.52GHz
ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboard
6GB DDR3 1600MHz by corsair
750 watt power supply
300GB Western Digital VelociRaptor operating drive and a 1tb for storage
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 1GB for the vid card
cooled by the cool master v8
optical drives are the reader and writer with lightscribe
and got the performance fans on the chassis for more cooling.
added the red led lights for that extra touch ;)

below is the link for pics of the computer and below here are the cpuz/hwmonitor pics

that was actually a little while after i got it up and running. the two top fans weren't going at that time. the gpu sits around 40-44 at idle and about 65 during heavy gaming for a long period.
