Ouch! If i friend my comp, i would quit using computers all together!
I have spent so much time and money on my top build, that if it fried i would lose it.

But thankfully i have a OCZ PowerStream Power Supply (700 W). GOD i love it!

Is that a trusty mobo?

Yeah you don't want to make a mistake on the psu. I bought the antec smartpower, which seemed like a good deal from a reliable name. Well first time around it fried everything. Thankfully newegg replaces it all and now the computer is fine. Until the other day im browsing new egg and see a whole bunch of reviews saying that the thing dies after 6 months. So now im gooing to have to go buy a new psu. Im just glad i know it's coming.
