    Argh I always post in the wrong area heh, maybe a mod can move it for me. About the wires, there is seriously no where else to put them lol, but i know what ya mean. I figure since its watercooled, wouldn't be much of a problem.

    Great system, but I have to agree on the cables, however it looks like nothing a few cable ties wouldnt sort out.

    I don't see how cable ties can help on my system as you can see, the majority of the wires is all one cable from the psu with lots of power sockets on it. Although i'm sure i could use some cable ties for the SATA, but the power cables are more or less already tied as much as they can go :-)

    Well the GPU is from my old PC, i thought it would be a bit silly to buy a new x1950 which is only 15% better than the x1800 I hear... And its not even direct X10 stable right? Wouldn't it be better to wait a few months when the DX10 gpus come out for vista than waste £300 for a 3 month graphics card?

    lol why is it so important for enthusiasts to have perfect wires? Airflow isn't very important for my setup. It would be extremily hard to clean up the wires more than they are already - I did try They just arent long enough to be tied to any other wires.

    For the cables all you need is a cable tidy kit, they are infact not easy to get hold of in decent colours anymore, but if you can get hold of one you can put the mesh over all of the cables and it makes it look a lot neater.

    Nice setup, personally I think the E6800 is a bit of overkill, but then I don't have bags of money to give to shops
