QuickSilver, PM me the stuff you used to build your grandmas PC. If spec'd well enough, I could handle a $350 windows machine for light gaming.

Sweet, I think I've seen that before. I might give something like the midrange one a try. I think I would want a dedicated graphics card though.

I guess my biggest concern is that I have never built a PC and would be afraid I'd order something and it wouldn't be compatible with the motherboard or something else.

That was my concern too. See if the site has customer service that can check for you.

In all reality, I would probably be just fine building a Windows only machine. I have a MBP and Mac Mini server, already. The MBP is dual booted with windowns, but it sucks booting back and fourth. Having a Windows only desktop for gaming and work would probably be the best option.

Mine is great. I use it as a home media server, as well as a minecraft server. Does an amazing job for such a tiny machine.

I wish it was possible to hackintosh with AMD processors. I can't keep the cost of what I want down because of high priced Intel

****. Fell asleep with my charger on my MBP, wake up this morning and the charger doesn't work now. No light on the magsafe plug, no arc when I plug it in like usual, and nothing indicating charging on the computer.

Also, my MBP is a 15" and it came with a 60W charger. Everything I see online says 85W for the 15" and 17" models. So if I'm gonna pick up a new one, should I get the 85W?

See if the charger is under warranty still

Doubt it, got the computer in 2010. Either way, this blows, 17% more battery then I'm stuck on iPhone and iPad. Really don't need to spend $80 on a damn charger
