Just curious as to what the overall average was for everybody else.

About 7 hours. Started 3 PM, did the test build then went out for dinner... came back a few hours and put everything in the case, and by 1 AM I was installing W7.

Took me like 8 hours but that's because i was so scared I was doing something wrong.

About 2 hours to assemble and maybe another 2-3 hours to get the OS up and running and tweaked the way I needed it with all the drivers and so forth.

Built my first in about 4 or 5 hours, 10 years ago.

Last build took under 2 hours. Stress testing with Prime95, Memtest, Furmark etc and migrating files and programs can take a day or two.

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