I just wanted the learning experience, and I was like ehh, the rest of my family could use a computer
Same here bro, my one of my really good pc friends helped me build my pc as well, now I basically know how to build one. =)

But I wanna know the story! Lmao if I can!
While you tell me story, can you also throw in some pointers please?

Lol well I know TWO games I'll be playing 100% for sure.
Why? Cause they came free with the card
So did 3D Mark Advantage Full Version (Even though when you google the key, the first site has it, and even though they sued, they never took it down SHHHH)
Lol I'll be playing Far Cry 2 and Mirror's Edge.
I heard Far Cry 2 is really good? Is that true, Mirror's Edge seems.... weird, but it came free

Well me and my Dad built the computer!
It was a lot of fun actually.
Jesus but the wiring was hard, it still isn't perfect but it'll do..
Lol first time and it didn't work, I can never plug the front panel in right and power didn't work! But we fixed that after a few tense moments!
The cold cathodes look awesome!
Pics and more details tomorrow, I'm tired

Lol my friend dropped off a bunch of old crappy PC parts before going to colledge, luckily there was enough parts to build a working computer. Another friend and I messed around and got it working, and while it's not something I'm going to use, it really taught me a lot about building PCs. Custom gaming rig here i come.
