Default All done...

After tons of hours working and working. Every now and then I got to look at all the parts I would be getting thanks to newegg. And the great support of this forum. I just wanted to say thanks for helping me out. I finally got all my parts in today and install took a little while, because I am a noob. I didn't run into a single problem, as is yet.
I can't wait until I get a new monitor, I hate not having a Desktop. I hate using this 52" HDTV in only a 720p resolution. It is ok for now but I really need to upgrade. I will hopefully have lots of pictures tomorrow and a more in deap review. I have really only got to download drives and get firefox. Not really much else. Also thanks to Ross for helping me out o'so much. So thank you all. Later

Hey I noticed for your motherboard you chose a 680i. They're supposed to have a lot of issues, though, and I had been planning on getting one until I heard about the bugs it supposedly has. So anyway, I was curious if you had any probelems with yours, and if so, what did you have to do to make it work?

I should of actually posted my specs, I will when I get home. I created my signature before I bought my parts. I didn't get the evga 680i board because of the problems. I got the Asus P5b Deluxe and I love it. Great motherboard. Once I get home today I will post pictures if my sister let me use their cameras. I also got g.skill ram, not corsair.

Yeah, I know. My computer wasn't even for gaming. I had to deal with only small task, no over loading it. I love how that my cpu normally runs at 1-3 percent, even while installing things. It took me about 20-45 seconds to install 3dmark 2006, but didn't get to see how it posted. All information will be hear soon. Right now I am at school so I can't, but soon. I hate my case though. It is a plastic piece of junk but it is my plastic piece of junk. Full specs, full review, and tons of pictures comming soon.
