Well, I'm now slowly getting all the components to build a new computer, which I will do a review on when it's done. So, here are three main things I'd like to say in conclusion.

1. If I could go back and do it all over again, I wouldn't change the computer I bought. Why? It was a valuable learning experience, I learned a lot of what I know trying to fix that computer.

2. I will never ever buy a computer that is proprietary. So basically I will never buy the following brands: Acer, Compaq, etc. From now on I'm building my computers, that way I know I can upgrade them.

3. If you have a problem with your computer, you fix it! You will save money and learn in the process. If you're a lazy person, that's too bad because you're missing out on, what I find to be, fun!

There are also some tips I'd like to extend to you.
1) Motherboards with built in video cards, DON'T buy them!
2) Acer makes good peripherals, not computers.
3) Proprietary computers, burn them, don't buy them!
---The easiest way to know if it's proprietary is if has a custom interface. For instance, a CD-ROM drive a has a special curved bay, not a regular rectangular bay.

Thank you for reading my story, if you feel sorry for me, email me I will give you my address, you can send me some money to help with my new computer!
