The article was not a build list.
It happens to also have a step by step instructions on putting your build together with pictures.
I felt it would be helpful for him to read.

Since his components already arrived I assumed he did not need a parts list but wanted instructions on putting it together.

Last time I checked the process of building a computer has not changed in the last year.

ehh sorry dude, I was in a bit of a hurry and on my POS powerbook. I saw the build list and thought, are you serious?, I didn't mean to come across as harsh at any rate. We do have a pc building thread here though, or at least we did. I think its in the Hardware sticky thread.

no problem. The one we have is here. http://www.techist.com/forums/f76/cy...wn-rig-102716/

I just do not like having to open all the pics and the one I linked is a little more to the point.
