I'm doing it because I want to do a mod project, but I feel like there are way too many doing insane 5K fully water cooled builds out there. so instead I'll do a smaller mod that's going to be more about nostalgia and having a portable kickass gaming rig than about showing off how much money you can spend on a build.

If you reigned in your ideas about having an uber gaming rig, and settled for a casual gaming rig instead, you could potentially run one of the new AMD FM2 APU boards with a Pico PSU. OK it wouldn't give you amazing performance but it would still be pretty cool - or do you think I'm missing the point somewhat?...

I gamed for a little while on my 3770K, and I got playable frames on a lot of games. Not Crysis, obviously, but Portal, Borderlands, Left 4 Dead - all played nicely.
The new APUs from AMD would be even better, and I think it's a good option.
for Sheroo.

On the other hand, I see you considering a 680, so I guess onboard solution are out of the question completely. No matter what you choose, this should be great.

Couldn't agree with you more, not that I don't love those amazing build but for me modding/building is about doing something unique with whatever you have as a budget and thats the challenge I relish.

Love what your doing here, I wonder if you could fit a Pico projector into that chassis. Killer project keep up the lots of pics!
