Lol you shouldnt be proud you did it at 14. I built one with my dad when I was 6 and just rebuilt mine from scratch yesterday. No big deal.... Tell me you custom built parts, I would be impressed.

Dude, I've grown up with computers. I REALLY only got into them in year 7. I built this one alone, calculating my PSU wattage needed and which mobo and processor would be a good one for upgrading (although AM2 is out, *$&@!)

Anyway, what do you mean tell me your custom built parts? I don;t MAKE graphics cards...If you mean the parts I used, I said it on my 1st post.

you missed the processor. i guess when he said custom built parts he meant that if you said you had made some of the parts yourself THEN he would be impressed

Nice work.

I grew up with computers too, but I never knew how to build one at 14. Congrats.

congrats on your first successful pc build. soon you will realise that your pc requires alot of maintainence sometimes a pc would cost you more maintainence than a woman.

Yoad i hope you did not mean you broke into your local pc store to use their stuff. lol.

i dont know how far you guys mean when you talk about making your own parts, lol. The most i done was changed a couple capacitors in motherboards, and built my own thermal controlled case fan systems. i also code microprocessors using VHDL and assembly.

pepsiboy you should not kill the guy's moment. i'll take your word that you could have spelt "processor" at 6 years old. no harm intended.

LOL, thanks dude.

I never got help from my dad though, it was purely research.
