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 could spend hours contemplating how to move wires around optimally.

I don't remember. Maybe 1.5-2 hours. My brother was there coaching me through it.

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.
