I'm planning on building it tommorow night. - From say 4.15 to 5.30 then aboutt 5.45 to 9.00 - I'm also planning to install windows and other drivers in that timeframe too. Does it seem reasonable? It'd only take 2 hours at most to build it right? Then about half an hour or something to install windows? Then drivers, and then possibly METRO 2033 !!!
sounds like a reasonable amount of time, however i'd doubt you'll get to metro 2033. microsoft will cost you a ton of time in patching and rebooting and that's assuming you have the install disk with SP1 already on there. you'll also need to install "other" stuff like adobe reader, flash, firefox, VLC, pigon and whatever else you use on a daily basis. next step would be maybe running about 12hrs of prime95 to make sure your system is nice and burned in and your TIM is good. after that maybe a few hrs of heaven + prime95 to make sure you gpu is solid and your case is able to deliver the cooling needed for max load.(also to make sure your PSU is solid enough) AFTER you've done all your burn in tests, then you can start loading your games etc... no point in putting everything in just to pop a cap on the PSU a week down the road right?
sorry to burst your bubble like this, but that's how i'd build my personal system:D
