Default Suspense Is Killing Me!

Ok has anyone ever ordered a whole list of parts for a build and had to sit for 3 days waiting anxiously for it? Ugh jeez time is going to go by so slow!

They are going to process the order on Monday with Rush shipping and I got UPS Next Day, so I should have it by Tuesday.

Here is what I got:

Gigabyte GA-K8NSC 939 ATX Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3000+ 939
1GB (2x512MB) PQI Turbo PC3200 RAM DDR400
AOpen 6600GT 500/900 AGP 8x 128MB
2x Rosewill 80mm Case Fans
Windows XP Home w/ SP2

Total came to $620.17 w/ Next Day and Rush, not bad.

I already have a Case and PSU waiting, along w/ a 80GB Maxtor HD. What do you guys think? God I can't wait to get this!

You're getting it off easy, I didnt have that much money, so I had to buy the parts while they were on sale and then wait til I had all the parts to build it!

Of course, if you've been looking at some other threads, I'm having a hell of a time figuring out how the hell to cool my damn machine!

Any help is appreciated...

Seriously dude, three days go buy in no time, lol. My HD was the last to come since I ordered that off of Tigerdirect. I still can't get it to work and its been one week and a day since the first parts came.

Nice build, very nice price! Congrats!

I have heard some negative things about LITE-ON and also Rosewill. but i have never used them myself.

3 days is nothing!!!

3 days?!
Ha, how bout 4 months. The first thing I got was the case for my birthday, bought everything week by week as the $$ came in, and the video card was the last thing....
It came dead, So I had to RMA it for a week and a half
I've learned to deal with computer anxiety.
