    If you need a heatsink I have a AMD stock AM2 heatsink, I believe it will fit.

    the hardware started arriving today. The CPU, heatsink, fans and monitor from kenkickr and motherboard from blkhogan arrived today. I believe the case was sent off today and the RAM is being sent off tomorrow. Just waiting on Paulieg's RMA for the replacement PSU to be completed so he can send me the PSU and hard drive he's donating.

    Again, a hugh thank you to all of you who offered to donate some hardware for this build, whether I took you up on the offer or not.

    You guys are fucking awesome. I had to work my ass off and spend around a grand the piece of crap I have now (damn retail). I think you guys just made a life-time TPUer outta this kid;) Seriously, people who donate like this should be given special tagging or something. I would give him something if I had anything to give.

    Actually, believe it or not, the newer PSUs have internal surge protectors built in. I believe it is the MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) that takes care of that. But that would only cover the tower, not the monitor :p

    tonight Sean finds out about this, I can't wait to see his expression when he realises just what he's getting, and that he'll be looking at this on his 22" LCD.

    Well, he knows exactly whats going on now. Saturday night, His mom and I took him to a friend of mine's house for his birthday party. I brought this thread up on my friends computer(which had the monitor Ken sent hooked up to it) and told him to read all four pages. Sean's face was red as hell and he was shaking as he was reading the thread. Then he came to my post where I said-

    and he just stopped. He was like "wait a minute, something doesn't add up right here". Then I said" What? Everything adds up perfectly", waited a few seconds, and then I said "That's your monitor your looking at". If the boy wasn't sitting down, he woulda fell down. TOTAL SHOCK AND AWE. He just can't believe that people actually care enough to help him out like this. About the only thing he could say is "THAT'S AWESOME". Needless to say, that was THE BEST birthday party he's ever had. Thank you everyone for helping me make it happen.
