nope its "gobsmacked", lol!

I think it is something to do with being so amazed you can't speak - which is normally more pleasant than actually being smacked in the gob :shock:

I built my system a year ago, and I now doing an upgrade, but the cool thing is that I'm buying some extra parts (mobo, cheap case & cd-rom etc) and slinging them with the redundant parts from my main system to make a dedicated server, for pretty cheap :D

It can be a bit confusing first time, cause there's a lot to take into account, but if you can find someone to give you a hand (or if you know enough anyway) go for it.

hi,

i agree with building your own system because researching about your future hardware, opening boxes as it is, fixing them up and finally, the moment when you turn on your computer and hearing the buzzing sound of the fan. Aaah it's ALIVE. It feels GREAT :)

i been building my own pc all the while and loving it :wink:
it's much easier now compare to last time. manuals are more complete, casing are more spacious (i am appreciating this cuz i started off from the desktop casing, n those assembling a desktop pc is a pain in ur hand), tons of tutorials online and lots of help from forums when you need it :)

there is alot of avantages of it. that's all i can say :)

cheers!

Anyone know how to get rid of/change the voice message that says "System completed POST, Computer now booting from OS"?

I just started getting it but I want to make it a different one.

I remmember the first computer i built when i was about 12. My dad gave me an old case with a 50Mhz processor. I was so psyched. One thing, if your not profficient with building computers, and this is your first time, i suggest getting some help. It would be REALLY sad if you spent 500 bucks and then blew out the motherboard (been there, done that). Just a word of warning! :)

I would ether go with a AlienWare or build my own. I hate HP, Compaq, etc. as they have had parts go out on me all the time.
