Some very nice hardware in this topic - it's making my old workhose look rather .... bad
I put this rig together in 2009, added some bits (mainly storage), swapped some parts (mainly broken RAM and PSU), but it still does the job for BF3 and GOW and my photo editing work. (PS/LR).
I won't put a pic up since my office is so full of crap, that I would have to dig out my case in order for it to show up in the photo!
CPU: Intel Q9550 2.83Ghz Quadcore (stock with stock cooler)

Storage: Samsung 840 PRO 120GB SSD + Kingston V 120GB SSD
Storage: WD 2TB Black, WD 1TB Black (x2), Seagate 320GB (x2) in RAID-0
Video Card: XFX ATI 4890 1GB
Case: Thermaltake Element S (Brilliant!)
Power Supply: Corsair CX600

All of the gear was purchased at Playtech.co.nz - which have delivered great service over the years. (Swapping my defective XFX 4870 for a 4890 as the '70 wasn't in stock, replacing the Corsair RAM several times until suggesting to replace it with G.Skill which has worked fine for me, etc.).
I've always been very fickle about my cases and I have used Antec cases since '99 - I couldn't find the case I wanted here in NZ (and shipping from the USA would have been stupidly expensive) so I went with the Thermaltake Element S ... and what a beauty she is, plenty of space for all the hard disks, which are all mounted at a 90 degree angle from most cases, so that the front of the HDD faces the large side panel.. making it very easy to just slot them into their screw-less slots. Case also comes with a large side panel fan, a good size top fan and two in-take and two extraction fans on the top and rear of the case, blowing cold air over the hard drive bays - none of the fans are overly noisy too.
