It's kind of cool to look back on my previous blog post and see the changes I've made to this machine.
- Mobo: EVGA 780i SLI FTW - the Asus would fail to boot most of them time, the worst customer service experience ever
- Video: EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked - the 280 was getting long in the tooth, Tested's review of the 560 Ti made me upgrade
- Sound: Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer - the Titanium wouldn't fit in the PCI slot next to the video card if I remember correctly
- HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM (2 in RAID 1) - I ran out of space, simple as that
- Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2443BW
