Default newbie sayin hi

hi,
I'm a Harley-Davidson mechanic in RI. I spend alot of time on NASIOC.com which is another forum based website dedicated to tuning subarus. Recently my gaming pc (read expensive) died not even a year after I got it. So i'm sick of buying expensive computers and having them crap out, then have the company tell me tough luck. So I'm getting into building my own computers and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can.

Welcome to the CF, happy posting.

On another note, where did you buy your computer that died out? Brand name? Also just wondering, what part pooped out on you?

it was an alienware, area 51 something or other. I originally thought it was the hard drives, but a couple of my friends and I pulled the hard drive out of another computer and stuck it in and it still wouldn't work. So we were thinking mother board, but thats one of the reasons I'm joining here to get some help to find out what is wrong with it.

ok I have a couple ?s. What does the reputation mean, and is there a way to view the website so that the page numbers of the posts don't go way across the screen.
