    Well, you should atleast watch him and learn something, maybe one day you will do it yourself. Thats the way I learned, just watched my dad build his one, next comp we brought, he helped me build it, finally I build my own these days.

    I know what you mean about being short tempered, I damaged a few floppy drives and cases when I was learning how to build. The damm floppy connectors seem to go both ways, so only way I knew if it didn't work was when Windows boot floppy didn't work. By then it was probably too late for the sloppy drive. Needless to say, since then I have always let someone else install the floppy drive.

    No problem. Just took another look through the parts. It looks like the video card is apparaently on sale till the 21st of November, which was 2 days ago. My bad for posting that mistake.

    Now, take a look here for other 6600's from newegg . Out of these ones, I'd personally recommend this albatron or this asus.

    My computer by todays standards would be considered ancient. I built it like 4 years ago, and I plan to build a new one in the next few months (once I get the money).

    Present System:
    AMD Athlon XP 2000
    512MB RAM
    Some ASUS mobo based on nForce chipset
    GeForce2 Integrated video (I had another card, but it died).
    and 30GB hard drive, I salvaged this from older computer to save $$
    Oh and a DVD burner and separate DVD drive.
