i got mine from a store , on the spot.
but then i had to wait for someone to come around and guide me through ,i could have done it buy myself but if i do something wrong i could have wasted $2000.
but anyways all the parts like 8800gts were just sitting in my room for 3 days Agh, so tempting

I must have spent an hour trying to get the 1 pin connectors into the right place on my first computer, hooking it up can be a pain too with wires tunneling behind my desk.

THOSE FING PUSH PINS. I broke 3 of them. I had to take some off the intel stock cooler just so I could mount the heatsink fan.

Thats a reason I got the tuniq tower. No clips and looks like an easy install. Hardest part looks like getting all your cables situated just right i.e. cable management.
