He said he was looking at two computers with these chips, not buying the chips separately as parts.
3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

it's really not all that difficult -- I just built our first computer and I doubt I will ever buy a computer again! It just takes some research and reading. During the building process you just need to be able to follow instuctions and have some patience. I bought the dummies book "Building a PC for dummies" -- It was great. And this is a great place to come to ask questions if you have problems or anything.

Seriously, though, I knew almost nothing about building a computer when I started...I didn't realize there was anything available other than the P4! I had never seen a motherboard, and never opened up our computer case or put in a video card or anything! And I just built an ENTIRE computer all by myself.

I just didn't want you to rule out building one yourself because you're not a "major techie".

i agree with annie. i built my first system a month or so ago, and it was no problem at all. i had done some research, made sure all my parts were compatible, and got quality parts. i had put in a new HD and a CD burner, but never touched anything with the mobo. I didn't even know what the processor looked like, when I opened up my old dell!
