You can make your wire management better. check out my Antec Solo build http://hothardware.com/cs2007/forums/t/34723.aspx?PageIndex=1
Ah, but you have a modular PSU and only 1 HDD, I have 2 HDD's, as well as a non modular PSU.
If I had a modular PSU, I could do alot better.
i have all the cables plugged in and 3 hard drives and it looks the same. i will update the pics tomorrow. even if its not mudular you can still hide all the cables

Slade you should just start a wire management business -- $50 to ship you a computer, you mess with the wires and ship it back Lol, I doubt many would go for it but still just tossing it out there
Drago:Elsp, keep an eye on your voltage for your psu, with that new vid card you might be cutting it close with a 420watt psu. Definitely though when you get your new cpu and motherboard, get a new psu to go along with it.
Woo I managed to do a quote!
Drago, I have done calculations and I reckon even with a core2duo, and new board and RAM, the 420W PSU should just be enough to power everything.
I have double checked my voltages, everything is running fine atm, +12V is 12.03V, +5V is 5.13V and the +3.3V is 3.33V.
I can get an X2 3800 for s939 for about £47 GBP atm or an X2 4400 on s939 for £105 GBP, so I might stick with AMD a while longer. If I do that, it means I can afford a nice new HDTV
Alrighty, I've ordered some Xilence 92mm Red Wing fans to go on the front of my solo, as well as some rubber fan mounts that should cut out some vibration.
Elsp that is plenty tidy for a case with no side window. Fantastic choice of case. Ive heard that the cooling and silence make it a must buy (far better than the P180). Careful when you mount that 92mm fan though..... Will it have a speed control to keep it nice and slow (and quiet)?
They are meant to be silent fans. If they are noisy tho I'll either 7v or 10v them, either with a cable from Akasa (I believe they do one for 7v), else I'll be whipping out my cable tools and solder iron.
Right, I should point out these fans are. . . interesting. They come with a 3 pin and a 4 pin molex built in to them, so you can't remove the molex unless u are sure you like wirecutters :Danyway, they are doing well! Very quiet and shift some nice airflow for the noise.
Nice, are you going to try and put a filter onto them of some kind, especially if your PC is floor mounted?
Case has a front filter pre-fitted, and it sits on my desk any for now.
