I know some one who seriously regrets buying a P5K - VM, can't oc with it as it is very very unstable board. The P5B is a nice board but the slightly updated one is a little bit poo.

Skimping on the PSU.<p>Don't EVER Skimp on the PSU. You'll regret it when later down the track you get some new hardware and realise you're PC doesn't like it very much.

haha...I've done that before. Paid $20, for what I thought was good, a 500W Diablotek PSU. This was back when I first joined T F.

My biggest regret, building a close friend a new pc, using the cheap PSU that came with the case, well I forgot I had done this and got her a newer GPU, a 6800GT. Lets just say the PSU didn't like the 6800GT after two months. No blown caps or anything, but the motherboard, ram and GPU where all shot.

Odd, but this forum kept me from having some huge regrets I would have had had I bought a pre-made PC. When I first came here I thought:
SLI 8500's!!! Awsome it must be a kickass gaming system
Thx Tech Forums.

I do regret buying the Coolmaster, cause its really not that 'cool' and a bit tight.

Why post this in "Your regrets?" lol... Are we going to end up wishing we had not done it?

A nice pub server for some game, maybe tf2 or something, would be nice.
