I hope her comp fries...

1. it would be funny.
2. I'd give her my comp and build a new one (with the same case and water cooling probably).
3. It would be a constant reminder never to be stupid again.......................

Hopefully it doesn't burn down my house though...

But, WOW thats a great deal on that psu.....
