RE: My New Rig
I love Rush Shipping! Everything has been shipped out as of tonight, the final setup wound up a bit different from the plan, so here's the actual ordered list:

- Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
- ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
- Two HIS H685F1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
- G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
- SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
- A-DATA S599 AS599S-64GM-C 2.5" 64GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
- ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
- COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

- COOLER MASTER R4-L2R-20AC-GP 120mm Blue LED Case Fan
- APEVIA CF12SL-UBL 120mm Blue LED Case Fan

I took Mathieu's advice about swapping out the DVD drive for the Asus, the Lite-ION did seem to have a lot of negative feedback. Also, I caved in and dropped the extra $25 for the 64gb A-DATA SSD.

So, all I have to do now is wait! I'll post in here again once everything has arrived. Thanks to everyone who's helped me get this far, and go ahead and cancel your plans for Friday - I might need technical support Tongue

RE: My New Rig
So, everything is coming in one box and is on time to be delivered tomorrow, except for my SSD, which came from NJ and just got rescheduled to be delivered on the 20th. SADNESS!

So, it looks like this weekend I'll be putting everything else together, making sure it all works, and just waiting for my SSD to get here on Monday.

RE: My New Rig
No reason to wait on the SSD... you can see if it posts, tidy up the wiring... even put an os on an old hard drive if you want to make sure everything is working properly Smile (While you're taking pictures, of course!)

RE: My New Rig
Ok, so when I boot up, the LEDs for CPU, RAM, and VGA take turns flashing, then going out, it finally settles with only the BOOT_DEVICE_LED lit, and the screen says:

Reboot and Select proper Boot Device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key

Does that mean everything is working? And that I just don't have a HDD hooked up?

RE: My New Rig
For the most part, I'm calling this build done! My SSD will get here on Monday, quick install and everything will be good to go! Honestly, I would never have gotten past square one without all of you, thanks so so so much!

Here are some PICS!

Pretty bad quality, taken on an iPhone. I'll try to grab a nicer camera over the weekend Smile
