You can always fix the pre-built system and come out a hero, or if she's really upset, play dumb and point her towards tech support...

Great advice. I'd hate to be the blame for every problem the PC has but would love to play hero.

After buying a ton of stuff from newegg for this rig I'm building now, I've decided not to buy anything from newegg anymore except for instance if it a good deal like I ordered a samsung f3 1tb for $55 2 days ago. Sales tax and higher prices are getting annoying.
