hey, after reading this forum for a week or 2, I decided actually put this myself, maybe I do have a brain, I thought it would be a good learning experience too. I had big help from solaris on the parts and pretty much used his suggested config, I hope this will be a good system. I have decided to save a few hundred and went with a 6600, maybe one day I can try to overclock it somehow.

*Let me know if you see something funky with this build or advice, I'm also looking for a recent tutorial on a full system build, I found a few but I would like some with good pics too, or maybe you know some that are better than others.

Use the installation directions in the manual that will come with the mobo. Also a good idea to use the online manual as well, bigger, better pictures on line than in the hard copy. General how tos are good to get an idea of what's involved but each mobo is unique
