Just at least try to do it yourself. Its not hard and can save you money in doing it. Dont' jsut give up and say that you can't do it without trying or anything or jsut simply saying "I don't know how to" you can read up on the stuff. You found your parts i am sure you can simply install them .

hey
i'd suggest an 8800 gts -320- instead of a -640- ... unless you have a huge screen you're not gonna need it, and for the cost just wait 90 days to upgrade to an 8800 gtx (or better!)

i was told the 6420 has better performance than the 6320. despite the product difference....

give building the computer yourself a shot. i had a bit of trouble connecting the 1394, etc, it was nerve wracking for me, and i didn't want to mess anything up, but you can do it

arrange the wires neatly. i couldn't tell you whether wires touching components will cause a meltdown or not, but from the looks of things (i backed down eventually) it's not a big deal

if you can afford it get a nice fan for your case. because some of them need to be installed/supported from behind the motherboard.

get yourself a sound card. dont' know if you've got one, but wow! (i've been playing guitar for about 7 years so i notice )

good luck
J.

guess i will give it a shot as long as you guys promise to stick by my side. U think i should go to 320 mb 8800? i was told to go to 640 320 was original plan, I'm not going to be playing on a huge screen or anything

what operating system should i get thats good and cheap. (well not cheap but not expensive)

Wink Re: Looking for someone to build my computer

When I build computers for others I charge $135 max.
I once called PC Club(few years back when I didn't know to do build a pc) here in bakersfield, ca and asked them the charge to install a cpu and fan...$85! WTF, that's when I did my homework and started building systems.

Anyway, I will charge you $135

Good Luck
