You need to enclose them in image tags most likely.

Yes, I'd agree. Also, I'm thinking it'd need the "http://" in front of it.

Thanks LinuxUser, I was missing the http://

@JoshHunter The loudest component is probably the HDDs. I have three at the moment, one is a newer model though so it's not so loud as the others (Seagate 9/10/11 series I think).

The PSU probably comes next, when the HDDs haven't spun up this is the loudest component. I would get a Seasonic if I was buying one again.

The 9800 GTs are fine on idle, but when I play games they get pretty loud. Hopefully the MSI Radeon 7700 will help with that.

The case fans are the ones that came with the case, and they are being controlled by the motherboard so they are only 500 RPM and silent almost all the time.

The radiator fans stay at under 700 RPM almost all the time, so they are silent except for if I'm rendering or something. Even then they're pretty quiet. The CPU block does have a little gurgling sound, but it's only audible up close.

So overall it's pretty quiet, often quiter than a HDD, and thats without the sides of the case on. When they're on, they help with the fan noise (PSU, GPU and a bit with the radiator fan noise) but not so much with the HDDs.

@benhanna All of my friends think I'm crazy, they can't see why I would use more than two or even one monitor :D

Well, I normally use two monitors, and occasionally three, and I could use more. (e.g. I'd like Visual Studio on four monitors arranged with two on top and two below! The more code visible at once the better!) There is no way I could ever go back to just one if it was less than about 23", and it would be very hard even if it was much bigger. I don't know how I managed when I just had the one 17" monitor...

I find that Maya requires the most screens of anything I do, When I am working in it my desktop doesn't look exactly like it is in my photo, I often have it spread over at least 4 screens. When programming (mostly XHTML/PHP) I don't really spread NetBeans over more than one monitor, but I like to keep lots of browser windows open on different monitors. I have been having to put up with one monitor at my college where I study 3D animation since I took my 23" home and I have been left with only one 23" monitor :( I have bought a couple of 17" monitors ($35 ex leased) one of which I will take there. At home I have 2 23" 1920x1080, 2 22" 1680x1050, and 2 19" 1280x1024 (except the 23" ones all are ex-leased monitors).

Thanks, Josh. It is definitely an interesting sort of case. I'll bet you're wishing for a modular PSU though!

I try not to, but Corsair AX PSU's are the only PSU's on the market that have nice cables (not the ugly multi-coloured stuff that screams to be sleeved.)

I'd get another Strider but I'm not really interested in sleeving again.

I would like a corsair or seasonic psu purely because of the slightly more impressive cables than my ocz zx850 but for the price i got it for it was an easy decision (more than $100 cheaper than a ax 850) :D

I prefer that look to sleeving tbh. Far less effort as well... Sleeving is not for the faint of heart, it's very boring and your fingers get cut up to hell.
