    Any problems you run into when putting the build together, just post up questions here and we can help ya get it figured out.
    I'll be sure to post if I get stuck. Hopefully that wont happen lol

    Looks good & once you've put it all together, and smacked games out the park, only thing to worry about is hoping Steamroller will be awsome

    The only thing I got stuck on when I first built mine was software, make sure you have another computer nearby to be able to get drivers, and such.

    But I was an idiot, and decided to build mine without a disk drive, so I did everything with a flash drive. I ended up going to walmart, and buying an external dvd drive, used it to install the os+ect, went back and returned it lol

    If you have another computer though, just use a flash drive. There is no reason to use a DVD drive these days.

    haha that's awesome because I actually thought about doing that but with an external drive laying around. Luckily I'll have my laptop nearby to download driver on.

    Do you think it would be a bad idea to go ahead and put my drivers for the new computer on a flash drive?

    No, of course not. You can even install Windows from an flash drive.

    EDIT: I cannot grammar today.

    I meant, I only did that because I couldn't get windows to install from a flash drive. I used Win2flash, or something, but the board wasn't recognizing it.

    What was the problem? Everything should work just fine if you use Microsoft's "Windows 7 DVD Download Tool" (or something like that).

    It would load to start up for the installation, but once it got everything up to the blue screen where you start to choose options, it would crash.

    I never figured it out, I tired with 3 different flash drives, multiple times. Burnt a disk, it worked the first time.
