Thanks guys,

I am not sure about that Doug, mine looks pretty basic compared to some of the rigs I have seen on here, like Bungees for example.

Welcome mate. Today it's easier than ever to build your own rig with exactly what you want in it. The very first thing I did was replace a CD/ROM, that went well so when a power supply went bad I replaced that too.

I say go for it. You won't be sorry. But, be careful it can be habit forming. It's an addiction. Just ask most of the guys on this thread. Yes, we're all enablers, Bill. and FalikAlfonse, welcome to the forums. If you need advice or help building it, you can get all you want right here. Most of us, live for that. But, we demand pictures.

Welcome to Seven forums FalikAlfonse,
I was in your position too just 3 years ago. I payed to have a pc built for me as i had no knowledge of pc's but wasn't happy with the outcome. So i started doing small change's which escalated very quickly into a never ending upgrade habbit. You learn as you go without realising.
just enjoy it I'm looking forward to seeing your build.

That's what happened to me. I paid a recommended builder to build a PC for me and never was happy with what I got. After seeing people online who had built their own, I started studying up on how to do so and asked a bajillion questions until I finally built up my nerve just recently and built the thing. The guys here were a huge help getting the thing running and set up properly. Hopefully, it will last me for the next seven years because I won't be able to afford to build another one before then.

In regards to building a computer yourself, I find this quote from Eisenhower helpful: “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”

Ask as many questions as you can come up with before you spend a single dime. Decide what your needs are, don't worry about future proofing or world record benchmarking. In fact, don't worry about anything because it is suppose to be fun! More people will help you mock up a computer than you can count, so don't worry about having to go at it alone. Then when you get the parts, it's like a great big Lego set for adults. When you are ready, you'll have all the help you need!

Did you post a pic. of the finished build ?
I don't recall seeing it, as I wondered how the Gemin II looked in it.
