Smile Hello world

Hi I'm new to just about everything as far as building and advanced computer knowledge goes. I found this site yesterday nad so far has been really helpful! I'm building my first comp and will probably continue to build in the future cause I'm already hooked on the idea of putting my own computer together from scratch

A few things about myself:
Most notably I'm a musician so if there are any other musicians out there I'm more versed in music and music gear than computers at the moment lol.
I'm going back to school to get a degree in programming specifically for games (I'm a newb when it comes to this as well)
I've grown up around computers but never had enough time/money to start venturing into building/repair and what not even though my dad is a computer repair tech for Tandy/Radioshack.
umm I'm having a kid soon and that is exciting as all ****... that is pretty big
well can't think of much else atm, but glad to be here and Ia look forward to getting to know everyone around here a little better.

take it easy
