Hi!! First time system builder from the Bay Area

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to introduce myself and say hello to everyone. I am going to try a new build for the second time (first time 5 years ago=fail:p) and hope to use all the knowledge these forums have to offer. I plan on doing a mid-range air cooled build for my first go. I'm not a super noob when it comes to system building but I do know how to google if anything arises.

Sorry about that living in California people seem to think there is only one bay. My first build was just a combination of being in a rush, not paying attention to detail and shorting out my MB. So I put everything away got a Dell XPS and two years later the only thing remaining of the Dell is the case, psu, mb. I'm picking out a sub $100 case right now but i'll post about that in another forum.
