Thaks to all that helped my with my first build

Well I finished My first full build. wasn't hard just a bit scary at first. went together smoothly. Only had one scare. after every thing was together and it was time to fire it up I plugged it in. The power indicator lights on the PSU and the Mobo came on then my son pushed the power button on the case.. :heink: ... nothing :( tried again... :o nothing :cry: Unplugged the power, double checked my work.... ( learning curve ) Found that I had plugged the power switch into the system speaker prong :whistle: moved the power switch wire to the correct spot, plugged her in again and tada system bios screen :D This system works great and plenty of room to up grade when HE finds the money.
for the $ this is a pretty good case lots of room and the hot swap slot is nice.
I'm not sure what to say about this mother board other than it went in with out a hitch and looks good.
Windows 7 home is nice I still haven't had a chance to play with it my self but The kid loves it. up from XP home
This Processor screams. I'm told you can unlock 2 more cores. I think we'll wait a while before trying that.
DDR3 what more can I say.
We maneged to get this PSU on a shell shocker deal for.... :ouch: $49.99 What an awesome deal on a great PSU tons of connectors, SLI ready, 4/12 volt rails. just a great PSU even at full price.

I need to thank all the folks here that helped me choose all the parts. I learned a lot and still have more to learn.
