    Hopefully getting a new case sometime soonish.

    Antec 300 just drives me to insane to sit there and try and manage cables.

    This was about 20 minutes work when i got my new GPU yesterday (gtx285) + new Power supply

    Getting a PC store to build a PC is fairly cheap. Centrecom in Melbourne charge around $70. I wonder how good they do it though. Would they use do sleeving and make it look pro like in some of the pics posted on here?

    I know I really suck at cabling so for my next PC I really want it to get done right.

    If I get a PC store to build how hard would it be for me to fix the cabling up myself by doing all the sleeving etc...? I've never really done anyhting like it before. What else do you do besides sleeving? What do you need to buy?

    Finished putting the new set up together.

    The parts are listed in my sig.

    I think the cable management came out pretty well, here's a couple of pics.

    With the money spent on the hardware + electricity used how much are you making with BTC?

    It's amazing how much difference the sleeved 24-pin (extension :p) makes. I'm pretty happy with this, now.

    If your landlord pays the electricity bill, it'll tend to bring a profit.

    what landlord pays the electricity? my guess he lives at home with his parents and they pay for the power...

    2000W, running 24hrs, at lets say 20cent per kw/hr = $9.60

    That is around $3,456 a year

    I know sweet fuck all about bit coin, but would you really make enough to cover the cost of the power bill, plus the hardware and then enough profit to make it worth all the hassle?

    Looking at the rates, it has also been on a steady decline since june...
