What is wrong with you? lol Are you trying to kill the poor man? Can't you see he has high blood pressure? You should reconsider your actions and sit in a corner with a cone on your head. j/k

Yeah, You probably killed him becasue of the price. It is the best retail build but you can get just under that power for alot less, though.

Of course you don't need it. Its just cool to dream about. Besides, jseber1982 pratically has the same build as I posted. The only difference is the cooling, blu-ray, and ram. He has the same motherboard, the same graphics cards (without the water cooling), same power supply, same harddrives and same CPU.

don't be such a poon, Poon.
for god's sake, son...it's like a jigsaw puzzle.
pieces fit whrer they are supposed to go. if you have to force it, you got it in the wrong hole, man.
its easy, your bios will practically set itself up.
basically if you can read and retain information, you will be okay.
i was nervous about my first (and current) build. i probably stared at my cpu for two hours, thinking of how i was going to screw it up when i had to put it in the socket.
and after all that, it just dropped right in.
dont be such a scaredy cat, bro.
