Special XP instructions

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade

Pros: Make sure you know this is for UPGRADING ONLY

Cons: for xp you have to try and follow their over complicated steps... just boot from disk and go to custom install and it will make a new file Windows.old for all your old files. No need to do a data transfer and all the mess they suggest.

Most Critical Review

Fast when it worked

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 50GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTX50G
OCZ Vertex 2 2.5" 50GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2VTX50G

Pros: It was rock solid and super fast for the whole 2 hours it worked.

Cons: It started freezing and acting weird and then the next thing I knew it had what ocz calls "panic locked" itself. Immediate RMA back to newegg. I had initially decided that I would get the vertex 2 because I have a lot of friends who's vertex 3 has failed and I thought these would be more stable. I was wrong.

Solid CPU

Intel Core i5-2500K - Core i5 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I52500K

Pros: Easy to install, decent packaging, runs great, easy to overclock, dang good price, win win all around

Cons: Stock cooler fan is a loser

Easy install

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Pros: Great stuff! My computer recognized it instantly. Make sure you know that windows 32 bit systems can only handle 4gb of ram so this is overkill unless you are running 64 bit.

Cons: none so far

Solid Board

GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Built mine with a i5 2500k and this puppy screams! It is a great board and definitely a good price.

Cons: none so far. Pretty easy to install drivers from disk and then update them.
