just a suggeston, not trying to critisize of anything. maybe make the pictures thumbnail sizes and if you click on them it would make them bigger. it would help with bandwidth and make it easier to read.

I followed your guide from beginning to end, though my case and mobo were a lot different. SInce this was my first PC I referred to the manual a lot ><. WHen I booted up for the first time everything was running but there was nothing on my monitor, the USB ports also were not working. I did have to use some force on some of the power connectors like the 20 pin one and I'm scared I damaged my board in the process. I'm also using a HD with an OS already on it from my other PC, is that a problem? Anyways, my main focus is the video. I'm really anxious to get the BIOS screen runnnig so I can pat myself on the back for saving lots of money on a gaming PC :). Before that happens, Ill need to find out why Im getting no video and why my USB ports arent responding :/. If your guys have any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

The problem could be many things, if you could start your own thread though and not continue to clutter up this one, it would be much appreciated :)
