    hahaha i would if i lived in the same country! :D
    Its simple really, just have to match plugs from power supplies, and know where are you chips and so on plug into your motherboard.
    I ordered all my stuff from Newegg, they were just a great company to order from. 5 stars no question.
    It all came to about $750 inc tax. It is so cheap if you order everything seperate, and dont get some guy who charges 300 bucks to put it all together!

    But my rig consists of:

    MSI 880GM-E41 Motherboard
    AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
    Ripjaws G-Skill 4GB DDR3
    nVidia Geforce GTX 460 MSI Cyclone Edition
    Corsair CX600 Builder Series Powersupply.
    And Sunbeam Case, 2x120mm fans, 3x80mm fans

    So far it has eaten up and spat everything out that i have fed to her! :D

    My rig:
    AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1Ghz Dual Core
    Ripjaws GSkill 4Gb DDR3
    Gigabyte GA-MA790 Motherboard
    Asus Radeon HD4890 1Gb Card

    All my stuff is getting a little long in the tooth. Want to get a quad core and upgrade the card, and pick up an SSD. May just go intel on my next build.

    I just finished Portal2 for PS3 that was some good play'n. I joined Gamefly a month ago and have been working their shipping department pretty hard. I have Infamous2 in the mail now not sure what I'll get next. Black OPs is what i play when I have nothing else to play. That game never gets boring, cant wait for the next one.
    GAME ON!

    I'll have to check it out for sure, been itching to build a new rig. I want to take it to the next level and completely hide all of my wires on the next one. I may go water-cooled simply for the sake of being quieter.

    Only thing that bugs me is all my cables are attached to my PS, cannot take any out, so it looks a bit messy.

    On your next build you should definitely go modular. I have two modular supplies for my computers but didn't hide the wires to either of them, so it's kind of moot. Can't be away from the gaming machine long enough to want to take it apart and do over. lol too lazy. And just my luck it wouldn't boot again. :mrgreen:

    I've kind of gotten in my head that you shouldn't mess around with your machine too much unless you can afford replacing several parts related to what you're messing around with. Ha.

    I wish I had the time to play. I used to play Unreal all the time and I don't mind saying I was pretty good at it. I like first person shooters that move very, very fast.

    BTW, did you know there are twice as many people subscribed and playing WoW than there are in all of Ireland?

    There is a truly modular PSU out there with single pin variability to maximize cord reduction. The bulldozer series didnt do particularly well in the last round of bench's which is why the pushed back their release. However, I would still choose AMD, if you are waiting you may find that their APU's are perfect for a new build. They scored particularly well in their first rounds of testing and are showing some promise in out pacing Intel's drive.

    Just got into this thread. Not much of a gamer any more, but do love building computers!

    AMD Phenom ii x4 810 (saving to upgrade to the fastest one my MOBO will handle)
    10 GB DDR3 RAM (Saving up to max it out)
    ASUS Crossfire IV MOBO
    TWO OCZ Agility 2 40GB SSDs in a RAID 0 for my OS drive
    3 TB total for storage drives
    ATI Radeon 5670 (planning on getting two more eventually)
    1000 watt power supply. Cant remember the brand, but it is a modular one, and only neccecary cables are installed. Also was highly rated on newegg.com.

    All drives are SATA, much cleaner install and faster theoretical speed than a standard IDE.

    Windows score of 6.8. Had it overclocked and got it up to 7.1, but was too unstable so I toned down the OCing.

    Nice or the Memotech with the FDX add on. You could create your own Lisa just like Wyatt and Garry from Weird Science.
