Old picture, I added a GT240 for a dedicated Physx card and also because it had build in HDMI that I send to my TV.

I built this in 2007 and have since upgrade the CPU from an E8400 to a Q9550 and the video card from an 8800GT to a GTX275 with the GT240. I upgraded the CPU to a quad core because the LGA 775 design is dead and no more processors would be released. I plan to keep this current system except for another GPU upgrade until about 2012.

Current specs are
Antec P-182 case
Asus P5E X-38 Mobo
Corsair HX-620 PSU
Intel Q9550 cpu with Tuniq Tower 120
8GB, 4x2 of Mushkin HP2-6400 DDR2
MSI GTX275 Twin Frozr
Asus GT240
Sound Blaster X-Fi Gamer
2x500gb Western Digital SE16
Windows 7 Ultimate X64
Creative Gigaworks T40s, 2.0 setup.
Asus VK246H 1920x1080
Logitech MX-518 mouse
Logitech Wave keyboard

lol I know! But no I have the A-51 I didn't go ALX cause I'm confident enough that if I want other parts in I can find them cheaper then what dell was charging.

But yeah my box was about 96 pounds and lugging it up two flights of stairs was not fun lol.

The HAF932 have a lot of Holes and have a back 'tray' to run wires. It's big, but it's one of the best Case i've ever had. I could clean it up even more if i putted more TieRap in there but it does the job right now so
