I built a miner and it took a while to get up and running.  Finally I got it going strong at 1100 MHash/sec.  I run it non-stop and have no problems.  It could be pushed further with more tweaking on your end.

Specs:
WD 250GB Sata 6 GB/s 7200 RPM
G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB PC3-10666
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
2x XFX HD5850's  - 355 MHash/sec each
Sapphire HD5870 2GB -  400 MHash/sec
Azza Helios 910 Case
MSI 890 FXA-GD70
COOLMAX| ZP-1000B 1000W PSU

I am paypal verified and will only accept payment via paypal, no BTC.  

I have earned quite a few BTC using this rig but its not as profitable as I'd hoped for, and yes I was a noob thinking old money factors would last longer than 10 days.  Looking for $1100 via paypal.

hmmm Not really considering what your cost of electricity is but "Not as profitable as u'd hope"? Have you ever invested $1100 in a bank? Bitcoin mining is great return on investment. Even on a high interest savings account at 2.1% would take you 4-5 years to reach the same amount you make in a month of mining minus electricity.

I have already made by 2/3 my investment and I am running 10x5850's and 6x5970's. If your mining you have to mine for the long run several months if not a year in to make all your investment back and more. So after that only electricity is my cost and everything else is profit.

Thanks guys, again I was a noob and thought I'd make it all back in a couple months.  I realize it can be profitable and the fact that electricity is free for me even more so.  As far as a good investment goes I can make more money in other ventures.

 As far as the eye candy goes its built into the fan haha.

Also I had almost all my BTC stolen from me by a hacker, so that soured it a bit for me.  Somehow my account was hacked at Deepbit and Slush's pool and my hash address was changed to someone elses. So for a while all my BTC were being sent to whoever hacked into my account.  I got it all corrected though, after the big difficulty factor jumps.

Hm, that's only 775 € at the moment. Sounds interesting. Where do you ship from?
How much would shipping be to Germany? Is the power supply able to support 220V ?

I have the red version of that case, and that side fan does a great job cooling the cards. I was worried it would be wimpy, but it actually pushes air pretty well. And you can always stick a box fan in front of it if you want to help it out a bit. If you don't like the LEDs, it is easy to snip the wires and put a dab of silicone calk to keep them from flapping around.
