This is a fantastic web site, maybe the most helpful site on the web for any purpose! My build (MSI p67a, Intel 4 core, 4 gb ddr3 ram, geforce 8600 gt) was not without its bumps, but I overcame them, and this website had a lot to do with that.

As I posted in the first boot thread, my one piece of advice for new builders is, do not replace your video card because you get the 1 long-2 short beep pattern. Unless you are getting nothing on your monitor, just forge ahead. Unless you actually cannot operate your computer, ignore that beep pattern and go about your business.

thanks
