  1. Them. You nailed it. That's the gaming rig of the day.

    Search for "diy pc" at youtube. Grab some chips & a coke. If you like, you can build the barebone of the mobo, cpu, hsf, ram & 1 gpu on the mobo box on a desk & see if everything goes well. Hook up the psu to the wall socket, switch it to off, touch it once in a while during the build.
  2. thanks for the info
