    Not that Acer has exactly a sterling reputation....But you have a good base A standard PSU will fit...and you have that all important 16x slot

    Actually while I do have the benefit of of the 16x pci I have to use an flex itx psu and a low profile card. The max that newegg sells is a 400w that's the minimum requirement for the gpu. That makes me worry I always give myself a 150 to 300w of head room. I don't like cutting it that close especially if this computer is gonna have to stick around for a long time.

    I have a lot of Acer monitors, they're great, but that's a whole another story. I prefer HP but WalMart only had the eMachines and Acer that had any real gain over the netbook.

    By heart I'm an HP person, by dollars I like what Acer brings to the table, and finally, as a last resort there's eMachines.

    But to each their own. This will serve its purpose for now then onto bigger fish in time. I might just gut this thing and build it from scratch.

    P.S. I don't sit on a truck load of cash so I make with do, my uploads aren't really to "show off", but merely a way of me to show how I try to make the most of my desk and still have a comfortable work space.

    Actually those are LG flatron Wide L194WT 16:10 LCD screens. Old ones, but you can see everyting from the screen, even in sunshine, and nothing reflects from the screen, maybe the only thing is that these displays does not support HD (max: 1440x900)

    Nice rig. Where's your hardware for your cooling system? Your plumbing gets lost in the power supply.

    I think your cabling is just fine! None of the fans are blocked and the cables are straight shots. I don't see webs of cables hehe.

    Oh man, Acer will always have a soft spot in my heart. When I was a kid, my dad used to come home from the Acer refurb store every couple of months with some new toy. I remember the first Aspire we got where the monitor was the same color as the case. I think that beast came with win 95, talk about a difficult transition from 3.1. lol. I think I was about 8 years old.

    He used to go to the Logitech refurb store too -- brought home this awful cross between a mouse and a joystick Logitech had been unable to sell. I remember playing doom with that thing. IDKFA anyone?
