I'm thinking about building it myself, can I get some suggestions on what parts to buy? Like Intel or AMD? That sort of thing.

Do they really. So when I open up my computer they know and it voids my warrenty. What crap. I've upgraded friends stuff on their dells and was not aware of this. Now I feel really bad. But how do they do it. What are you breaking that lets them know.

Try this website:

www.cyberpowersystems.com or

www.ibuypower.com

They build the computers for pretty cheap and its custimizable. They even let you choose your motherboard and everything. I think this would be good for you because you seem to know what you want but aren't sure of yourself enough to build it. Very similar to me. LOL. But if you want a really nice OC'able computer those websites are quite good.

PS I think you blocked me on AIM. My sn is mrgreen4meandu. If you would like more advice unblock me. If not then don't.

Hope this helps.
