I'm afraid that's definitely NOT going to happen. Trust me, I've already gone over what not to do to screw up this computer with them (use FireFox, don't download things you aren't sure about, no p2p programs, etc.)

If they do screw it up, that's what AdAware, SpyBot S & D, McAffee Antivirus, and others are for.

Why did you decide not to go with the NeoHE PSU?

Price, some complaints on other forums about it being unreliable, just felt better about going with a PSU that is generally considered solid by everyone.

Yeah, and while generally Antec is reliable, some people are having issues with the NeoHE series (just read the reviews on NewEgg.)
