Thank you both for the kind words. Thanks for the help in the thread too. I know the case I chose probably made my life a little easier for my first build, as it was pretty easy to keep most cables behind the motherboard.

iammykyl.....what is the Windows Experience Index?


I remember one of you saying once it's stable that I should make an image of the OS and back it up.....something like that.

Probably wouldn't hurt to get another HDD and back everything up......maybe that's overkill???

As iammykyl is not presently online here you go http://windows.micro...xperience-index

I remember one of you saying once it's stable that I should make an image of the OS and back it up.....something like that.

You can do this by using a second HDD, by burning it to disk or if your system will boot to a USB device and you have a large enough storage capacity memory stick/ a thumb drive, see the Freeware Disk Copy http://www.easeus.com/disk-copy/ or a pay for product such as Acronis http://www.amazon.co...ASIN=B005I5L1FK
