This is quite an accomplishment for me. It actually works! lol I was half expecting it not to work, but the OS just installed, and its starting up for the first time.

This is the most joyful day of my life (jk lol), but really though, im pretty happy.

Sorry, I just had to kinda let you all know.. Im sure it makes you all so very proud of me.

Congrats. I remember my first, i finally got her all together and then she wouldnt turn on. Took me two weeks before i figured out what was wrong, the power cable that came with the video card. Soon as i replaced it with the same kinfd that came with the PSU it fired right up.

Congrats. It's definitely worth it and a good learning experience.
