Your right. People cant hook up TVs. But it's easier to hook up a PS3 than it is a Wii.
Why? Plug wire into PS3/Wii.
For the Wii, you now plug 3 color coded wires... into the proper plugs.
For the PS3, Plug... the... one plug... into the only thing on the TV that will take it.
THe Wii would have the biggest problems with this, becuase it is aimed at NON-gamers. 90 year old grandmas, 5 year old children, and their incopetent mothers.
The PS3 is aimed at technology savvy people.
(I can build a entire computer from being in packaging to running a game in about 8 hours)
(when I say packaging I mean each part. I build mine)
You sure you mean 8 hours? Seriously 8 hours? It shouldn't take that long?
If you were drastically overclocking and mem testing etc then it should take a lot longer.
But if you're talking about putting the mobo in a case, plugging in cpu, ram, psu, vga card, sound card, sata / pci hd, dvd drive, front case ports etc should take max 1 hour and then it's 30 mins - 1 hour for operating system install.
BTW Kwaad I bought the 8800GTS during the week... brilliant piece of hardware :D
Nice buy. Bet your CPU limited. :p
Nah, it takes between 1-2 hours to set everything up. When you come up with a problem like... There is no pinout info to hookup the USB on the front of the case... you spend about 3 hours doing research to get that right. :D
Also, when your XP disc has a nasty scratch on the boot sector, you have to go back, install win98, start the XP install and remove win98, and pray to god it works the first time, and if it dont. Add about 2-3 hours.
It takes me about 4-5 hours to get the OS installed. And then it takes me about 1 hour to get all my drivers slapped together. After that, I make sure everything is running right, OC the crap out of everything, watch the temps for about a hour. After makeing sure I will have no heat problems, set clock to stock speeds, and start playing games. If there are any heat problems, add about 1 hour per problem.
I have lost 1 computer I built. The motherboards ability to use IDE failed...
That and I almost smoked my old P4 becuase of a faulty 5900. I didnt do my checks. Started playing a game, I smelled something. shut the game off, pulled up my temps, and the GPU was at about 110c, and the CPU was at 80c, while the ambient temp was at around 65c.
Since then I make sure I dont have problems.
