Geesh that totally pissed me off! I was just done with my post and my dialup disconnected and deleted it.

Here we go again. (short version)

I am ready to build. Quick sale lol. So, can anyone recommend me a book? I want a book to get my feet wet on this stuff. I really hope you all don't regret telling me to build with all my questions I am sure I will have in the coming time.

Thank you, I sincerely hope you don't regret this.....

Don't buy build it... Bought my first computer last feb. a compac.what a piece of junk, had nothing but problems. had to return it....since then I have built three, read up on building computers off the internet and gave it a shot. The best thing is you put what "you" want in it. Its fun and very satisfying to do it yourself and you learn what makes these things tick.
