Thanks. It feels better than GREAT.
It was much easier than I expected but I have been doing my homework since last November deciding what I wanted... and why. I researched each component, researched how each worked and how to install them. Read this site's forums and asked questions. The Newegg three part series on pc building was a big help... I watched them over and over... even had one playing on another pc as I was building.
I took my time and was very, very careful. It only took a day to assemble.
Price was $1401.18 after rebates and also included WIN7 Home, Logitec 305 mouse, CMaster Hyper 212 PLUS cooler, Logitech G110 keyboard, Samsung 22x DVD burner, Rosewill im5002 card reader and two 2311x HP 23" monitors.
I have two 1TB WD Blacks and two Samsung 2TB drives that are existing storage drives that I will add to it.
My wife still asks me why I need two monitors. I am the lone techie in our house. As long as all the computers work and the wireless network is up, the wife and kids are happy.
