You must be pretty busy taking pictures of it all, right?

okay, here are pics, pretty much a step by step of how to put one of these things together. it was fun, and i don't recommend to ANYONE buying the mobo and cpu seperately like our friend did:
twas the night before christmas, i mean, putting the computer together

empty case with psu: it's a sweet $55 case called "ninja". and it's cool. and by cool, i mean totally sweet

motherboard went in without a hitch, and so did the TWO FREAKIN GIGS of crucial DDR ram

what a bitch it was to put the chip and heatsink on: interl p4 3.2GHx with hyperthreading

pci and agp slots filled: ati radeion 9800 VC and a creative labs augidy 2 zs (which came with 5 games, like halo and rainbow 6 pt 3)

we hooked up the juice and the two western digital 120GB SATA hard drives, along with a pioneer dvd-rw drive

Alwys put on the HSF before inserting into case...

Sometimes you can't.
In fact, sometimes you have to remove the PSU so you can secure the hsf.

yeah, it wasn't really a problem with it being in the case already. The heat sink seemed to slip or something underneath the fan so it wasn't square and I didn't realize it at first so it wouldn't snap in. But in the end its in and works fine. Runs Halo reeeeeeeaal nice too :drool:

Sounds like it won't have any problems with porn, then.

:wtf:

Either you're talking about a SFF case, or need to lay off the manjuice.
