About two weeks ago I made my bro's new computer, which is basically just my computer from six months ago but Intel based instead of AMD.
Antec 300 Case (same I have)
Crucial C300 64GB SATAIII SSD (same I have)
MSI GTX460 768MB (my previous card)
Mushkin 1333mhz DDR3 RAM 2×4GB (same I have)
Intel SandyBridge 2500K (stock clock at the moment)
Zalman CNPS9700LED heatsink (just like I have)
Samsung 2TB 7200RPM hard drive
ASUS DVD Burner
An ASROCK motherboard
One of my old monitors, my old piece of **** PSU, and a complimentary copy of Win 7 Pro x64 provided by my school lab.
Plus labor, some tech support over Skype, and around 3 hours worth of my professional-grade UI and file structure sprucing-up service (which was all for naught after I had to help him reinstall the OS after a freak HDD driver failure).
Oh, and I'm only charging him $220 for all the parts and help... and the ****er hasn't paid me yet... Oh well, more free shooting trips for me!
But yeah. I've extended offers to some friends to "build them a sweet computer", and this was the first time I got to do it. Was fun.
Oh, sad thing? The motherboard was by the same company that I had to replace on my own computer. I haven't seen any direct problems, but it once had the same startup graphical glitch with my own motherboard. So, thanks ASROCK, I nay have just gone and purchased another faulty motherboard. Bleh. :[
