So I finally got around to taking pictures of my new build with the new graphics card. Long story short, the fans on my XFX DD 7950 were not working properly so I got a full refund and decided to get the Gigabyte Windforce 3 instead with the money. Very pleased with the new graphics card, it runs extremely quiet even on 50% fan speed.
This time around I spent more time on photography and used a real camera this time, not a mobile phone camera. I hope you enjoy my cable management! (Though the pictures went very dark after uploading for some reason).

I still have some upgrades in mind: replace stock fans with high end ones, high end thermal paste and a quieter hard drive.
