He had them from before he upgraded. This just shows the pricing for upgrades

Exactly. I was just trying to upgrade to a new GPU.

Turned out the PowerColor was having some major issues in Insurgency Sandstorm.

I ended up doing an RMA and am now waiting on newegg :(

haha. I wanted to share the power cable from the DVD drive.

Was thinking of a doing a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter.

But will probably just remove that top drive cage, like others mentioned

Description says XFX, but the GPU in the pictures is PowerColor.

Ok build nevertheless.

I tried to leave some slack for the SATA cables, but you're right I should probably clean it up some.

PowerColor is known to be pretty bad quality. I've had problems with it myself.

If you want a good AMD GPU - get Sapphire Nitro+ or XFX GTR/GTS.

Thanks for the the review. I kind of agree that PowerCooler is a little suspect.

Thanks for the suggestions too. I'll keep those in mind
