Talking I'M SO PROUD!!! *sniffle*

YAY! I'm a daddy!
Of a new computer... that is.
I recently got the final parts in the mail from newegg, and my first custom build is great so far. Still need a monitor and Vista or XP, but still, 'tis great. I booted up it in BIOS today and sighed a sigh of relief that everything worked. I was paranoid that some part was going to fail or be wrong but nope, it all turned out scrumdiddlyumptious. I feel a great sense of accomplishment, and although the computer isnt the best, I made it so I can upgrade it piece by piece.

Specs:

MSI K9N Platinum SLI Mainboard
EVGA 7600GT
Western Digital Caviar 160gb SATA
AMD Sempron Manila 3500+ 2.0 ghz processor
Lite-On DVD/CD Burner
1.25gb RAM (1 gb Jetram, 256mb Corsair ValueRam)
Generic PCI wireless card
Rosewill keyboard
Microsoft mini optical mouse
lovely little case
and soon to be
21" CRT monitor by IBM (dont complain, its cheap!!)
OEM vista 32 bit or XP pro...

Very nice! Congrats on your new addition to the family... may it continue to grow and multiply!

Go with XP... Vista is all eye candy... a memory hog at best...
