My current build.

Some problems, not quite 100% finished, but the general idea.

Things left:
More RAM (ordering in the next week or so)
Re-Sleeve PSU to black and white scheme
Address motherboard/GPU issue regarding POST code 94 hang (I mostly ignore this as it only happens during post sometimes).
The FW card may change, but for now, I'm happy with it. Strange problems with it, but nothing that seriously affects how things work for me.
Lastly, I have to get a new External Enclosure so I have FW800 and USB3.0 for better transfer speeds for video projects. I currently have a FW800/eSATA drive, but it's not very portable.

1080p editing is very smooth, and I am enjoying the speed when rendering. That said, I default to my laptops for daily use, as this thing is a real monster, idling at 110W or so. I haven't had a chance to get an accurate load measurement.

This weekend I have a two camera shoot, and my next small side project will be a video of a 1997 Mercedes convertible. Real treat!

I had a SMART failure so I decided to take a pic of my workstation.

I manage the wires quite well actually. You will notice my use of the zip-tie to make it so the wires do not go in the fan. :)

It's all a matter of styling.

Trip prefers "casual cabling" to more formal styles, it just like hairstyle, beauty is in the eye of the beholder:

OT :ph34r:, but not much, an useful tip ;):

A lot has changed since I last posted a picture/comp specs here on MSFN
 
This build was a couple years ago, but I haven't really needed to upgrade yet, its plenty fast enough for today's applications.  I've been wanting to upgrade my RAM to 16gigs, but CPU cooler is giving me height issues and I think I found a way around it..but anyways here it goes.

Fractal Designs Arc Midi Case
ASUS P8Z77-V LK Motherboard
Corsair TX650M PSU
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8ghz
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4gb) DDR3 PC17000 2133
128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD (OS & Apps)
640gb WD 7200rpm Sata HDD (Data) - Also have a 2TB USB 3.0 Drive
ASUS 24X Sata DVD Burner
Windows 7 SP1 64-bit
 
As you can tell, I have no video card.  I've been really happy with Intel Graphics 4000, works great for what I do.  Though, I will be buying a video card too, just haven't decided which one I want to get and how much money I really want to spend, haha.
