My parts for my pc are coming today(click pic to see the poor mans stuff). It will be my first build every so I'm hoping I don't fuck up. Couldn't even sleep last night, It feels like I'm 5 years old again. Also picked up a pair of Creative T40 speakers yesterday, for no apparent reason. Very pleased with the sound quality, not to mention the volume. Will post how my first attempt/mutilation goes. They say if you're good at building legos, you can build a computer. I lost all my legos and was always missing parts when I was little. WAT DO!? Have a good day everyone.

-Haven't been posting much due to all the computer business, not to mention finals are in 2 weeks. IT AINT DEAD YET.

Whenever I see a newegg cart, I get mad jealous.

Don't worry about it being your first time, it's not that hard.

This build doesn't look like poor man's stuff. It's actually above average master race.

That's a nice build, definitely not as poor as you think. Dat Fermi.

I know what you mean about it making you feel 5 years old again. It's definitely very exciting.

It's also true about it being like building Lego sets. Take everything slowly, double check everything, and you should be fine. Read the motherboard's manual! If you do this, the only potential problem will lie in being given a defective part.

Good luck!

You picked some pretty nice parts. Although, I have to admit I'm unsure about Nvidia currently.

I've got some good memories of them, at least. My last Nvidia card was an 8800GT and that thing lasted me for years before I decided to pick up something that'd be easier on my electricity bill and room temperature (the thing idled at 60C, on cold days).

Then there was the whole fiasco about them making faulty GPUs, and I ended up having to replace my laptop's motherboard three times with Dell because of that.

Anyway, I wish you luck and many years of good, stable hardware.

I was good at building legos when I was younger, but I don't think I could build a computer without fucking up.

I wish you good luck with this.
