This is the first computer I have ever built. I ended up putting more into the mobo and less in the cpu and vga because I assumed they would be easier to replace down the road than the whole MB. Anyways, I had a ton of fun building it and I want to build more... just not with my money ;)
Overall it took about 6-7 hours of build time. A good bit of that was trying to re-route wires once I figured out better, more efficient ways to route them. And also doing the external test build, because I was a little nervous about putting too much pressure on any of the components. I imagine the first thing I'll upgrade in the future will be the cpu with new case fans, and a new video card.
