    Thanks was just looking at that, altought i am concerned that this is going to be my first build so scansure is a major plus to me incase i "brick" (i think that means break!) the mobo

    Yeah. Never had a problem with ebuyer here.

    I like the way the MSI 870-45 looks. Is it crossfire compatible? You could have a cheeky upgrade path there with AMD/ATi cards.

    Your post/avatar made totally lol!

    at first i thought your post was about a static wrist band, then i realised what you meant what made me lol some more then i looked at your avatar what was probably how my face look liked when i had epic lol syndrome....

    Anyways thanks for making my day (Along with my english teacher bringing her 4 our old son into class who was epic because his name was andy LOL)

    In reply to law the board looks like a decent budget board so I think it may be worth waiting for it to restock on scan so if i do suddenly have RamshovedintoPCIeSlotoopsitbroke Syndrome along with the fact of next day delivery what won't really affect me anyways....



    Was looking in to extra fans for the scout, i think it can take 3 more but ill wait to know if i can get extra fans to fit due to GFX card along with Fenrir (i should of chosen gold since it is the same performace but it was red n black so will go with my case)


    Anyways, how long can an average build take for a newbie? a weekend at max i hope

    I guess it depends how much stuff you're doing. It won't take you long to assemble. Just make sure you have a clear idea of what you are doing and when in your head. Fiddly bits like screws are the biggest pain for me and I have long, musician fingers.

    A weekend will be enough though for sure, plus loads of playtime :). Last time I did anything it was a new mobo. It wasn't the assembly that took very long, it was installing Windoze7 and apps, shedules and disk cloning/backups that ate the time.

    Still wondering if its worth it to upgrade mobo to a better one or keep the one im going to get, only need one PCIe for GPU and i hope it is a full sized board
