    I bought a lot of the stuff after Xmas on sale from Newegg, but I got impatient this morning and ran up to CompUSA in Tampa and got the motherboard and SSD. Windows 7 is loaded and running smooth. Have to import a bunch of stuff tomorrow.

    I opened the case to make sure it wasn't dented. A brushed aluminum case with no fucking obnoxious led lights.

    You should get a Mac Tarp, you will not regret it and you will never look back to Windows again.

    This is actually pretty impressive

    Did you fuck anything up?

    How many times did you swear?

    Fender, I'm typing this on my Macbook Pro. I need a PC though and the wife is more comfortable on one.

    Everything went very smoothly. First time I hit the power button, everything came on like it was suppose to. I'm a little shocked to tell you the truth. :)

    I use a small ssd drive for my boot drive and a couple big drives for storage. What kind of video card you get or you just using the integrated one on the i5?

    why'd you pick that motherboard? (noticed it's rated 5 stars on TigerDirect)

    I'm ready to rebuild my PC and the MB choices are just crazy...hard to figure out the best bang for buck
