2 days, one for installing CPU, motherboard, RAM, PSU to the case, the other one for cable management, since I did not know how to do it XD

How in hell do people take more than 2 hours? Unless you guys mean installing windows, downloading updates, installing drivers etc... aswell.

Taking my sweet time to avoid possibly breaking my $900 worth of equipment? Having shaky hands doesn't help.

I had some very common noob problems

That's weird how everyone's time is longer when they're not trying to convince someone to avoid prebuilts.

My very first PC was almost certainly a pre-built, so maybe less than five minutes to get it out, plug in the cables, and put it where I wanted it.

Like 4 hours? I had a friend there helping with the cable management, so that made it a little easier.
