Well, congratulations !

Itīs great when the decisions are finally made, and everything is ordered. For me itīs a really hard time, reaching that point. So many possibilities, and what if and then what and I could also..... Dah-dah-dahh.... The doubts never stop gnawing, ever. But when all the parts lie there, stacked up on the table, ready to be put together... The exitement screaming LETīS GET IT ON !!!! Well, I get a kick out of building computers, I guess.

I wish you a happy build, enjoy it, let it take the time it takes, donīt rush it, think twice, be smart, look ahead, and enjoy it while it lasts. Because if you get bitten by the building-bug (like me), then you will feel a little void, when the machine is up and running. What now, nothing more to build, awww.... Thatīs when you start overclocking ! And then, you start changing parts, to obtain better clocks, and THATīS when you start benchmarking, and comparing to everybody elseīs system, and THATīS when you start to get really picky about your components.... Aw, I get a lot of entertainment from computers. Enjoy the internet, playing games, all that stuff. But the most fun and satisfying is building and optimizing the machine.

Ps. Letīs us know, how the build goes.

I will let you guys know how it goes for sure. I was lucky enough to have been able to build 2 computers in about a 3 month time frame. The first computer I built I ended up being used as a server at one of our lawyers law firms when their server died. Then my boss offered to buy it off me and I said why not. Gave me a chance to make a few changes to the build so hopefully I made the right choices.
