No. but everybody starts off without really knowing anything. and MICrocenter has a deal if you buy CPU and MOBO at the same time you get $50 off the mobo so i am thinking i could just downgrade to this http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...
and then have the $100 for a OS.


I think we've got the OS covered...
