technically, its not a new machine, but the fact that i brought my computer back to life is happy news just like having a new computer!
She's seen better days:
Freaking keys were horrible, took me forever, there was like 7 variations of the same shape, insanity!!!
all back together, like 95% the same, a few missing screws, sure, she might not look as pretty, but she is back!!!
yay owned by 13 year olds, good ol fun times!!!

I just was cleaning my dust guard so I took a pic from the inside.
I really like the blue details on the motherboard & ram.
It has three case fans, with adjustable speed. Normal I have them on low, but with the hot weather over here now I put them on medium. On high it sounds like a turbine engine.
Looks like my CPU & GFX fan are also pretty dusty, wich is logical after more then 3 years now. But I don't really feel like cleaning them, I accidently destroy things most of the time. Wich is not a fun quality to have.
Also notice how those big & heavy GFX cards these days tend to bend over.
That golden thing on the back is a little Chinook pin.

Needs some final cable management-y touches, but it runs great. And so quiet!
Are there any fans on the top blowing out? If not I should cover it with something. Also that white coat looks pretty nice, better than that standard grey.

It's an honest question, I grew up with intel but I'd had an AMD for a while and it performed much better than my intel for video games. These days I use a Mac I bought for school and I don't know what kind of processor it uses.

There's noise dampening plates on the top, plastic and foam. I have one of them open for airflow right now and I'm installing a fan there when it arrives in a couple days. Temperatures are great without it already though, which I'm pretty happy about.

Intel/nvidia combo is the way to go for vidya.
