Yeah, ordered another $615 worth of parts today. Motherboard, processor, RAM, and a power supply. I have been freaking out all week about it.
First off, wife o' mine needs a new pair of shoes and a night (or at least afternoon) out of the house, and that cuts into my computer budget. Not that I mind or begrudge her anything, but at the same time it meant that I had to cram my budget down as low as possible. Not that I really scrimped on anything, but there's more stuff I'll be buying down the line that would have been cool to include immediately. So here's me, juggling parts based on price, bundle discounts, rebates, whatever. Spending this kind of money always stresses me out.
Secondly, while I'm looking for a good deal, I'm also looking towards the future. So instead of the 850W power supply, I bought the 1000W. I could have bought a MUCH cheaper motherboard, but instead I got the most current model available today. It gives me the possibility of adding a new processor and much faster RAM some day in the future.
Finally... I have to say, I'm a bit worried about how it is all going to come together. I hope I don't break anything, and I hope that everything works properly. I don't want to have to return anything and wait even longer to get my computer up and running. This is my first complete build, so I've got my fingers crossed that I don't fuck it up.
So, since I bit the bullet and ordered the stuff, it is time to start drinking. Yay!
