Far out man, congrats, did someone on here recommend that build for you?

You just let the motherboard sit on the carpet like that? I wouldn't.

Nice build, but yeah the carpet thing was the first thing to shoot through my head when I saw the pics. Yeah, 6 gigs is nice. Do you need to upgrade to 6 soon though? Do you have slowdown in anything? I would wait for some more price drops if I were you. I went straight up six cause I used 2 gig sticks. I can go up to 12 now if I want.

Nice build. Clean up the wires a bit. I always set the motherboard up on the anti static bag that the board comes in. Good job.
