Well it looks as though I'll be ordering within the next week. Should ship out before March 8th, then give or take another few days and...
I should have it before March 15th.

Surprisingly shipping from Canada to Kansas is 86$. That's about 2 dollars for every pound (35 pound PC)

As far as the monitor and peripherals go, I'll be ordering those from Amazon.
So, it's the prebuilt right? :3

I'd rather lose 100$ than waste 900 frying a motherboard.

Since when do motherboards cost $900?

Assuming other parts were connected to the motherboard, the other parts and the motherboard would get fried.
Thanks for providing absolutely no value to me or this thread.
I'm sorry I don't have the option to build, does that mean you need to come here and be an ignoramus?
This is a serious thread; I'm not frolicking pastures and licking lollipops-- I'm looking for real advice from people who are experienced with computers to help me.

no, that is not how it works, at all, ever


which we have, you seemed to ignore every bit of it and got lower quality specs that have a warranty 5x shorter and worse then any individual component, along with no upgradability what so ever for $200 more, it doesn't make any logical sense, at all, ever

FYI, he's been helping here longer then me

If you were implying that you can't fry anything other than your motherboard, quite frankly, that implication is just wrong. Most commonly you will only fry your motherboard and RAM, but you could easily fry your hard drive as well.
I didn't "ignore every bit". I also didn't get "lower quality specs" considering the CyberPower prebuilt you chose had an unnamed PSU, hard drive, and RAM.
No upgradability? Virtually any desktop is upgradable.
I still get the warranty on each individual part, the 1 year thing is basically a whole system warranty.
The prebuilt you chose was about 100$ more than what I'm looking at now...

Look, I didn't say he doesn't help anyone, but when you reply to a thread with things like "you lost money", how is that helpful exactly? Does that answer my question?
If you would have read the thread you would quickly understand I can't build, I'm sorry I'm not pleasing you that I can't save 50$.

Not easily, no.

SATA does not carry much power.

Not quite. There are preventative measures many manufacturers put in some models.

Not true. the system you get is assembled likely months beforehand (sometimes upwards of a year or more, with a newer-ish graphics card thrown in later on. Oftentimes, many year old parts are used in new machines, for instance, I recently had to work on a CyberPowerPC someone had bought, and the power supply was from 2008. The computer was brand new from them only a couple months prior), and because the parts are OEM from whoever you bought it from, you get no warranties for the individual parts, just one for the whole machine that doesn't cover a whole lot.

I haven't been following this thread so I am not sure why you suddenly have such an immature attitude but as far as I can see everyone has done their best to help you in this thread and answered everything you asked.

I can at least say one thing for sure, having that kind of an attitude is not going to get you helped very well, if at all.

well, you do, because the parts are far higher quality, cheaper, longer warranty (have fun shipping a 35+ pound PC there, shipping will kill you) then waiting on their horrid customer support, i'll bookmark this thread, and when you post back here for help we can say we told you so when its broken beyond repair

That's the thing though; My questions were answered for the most part.
Then I was criticized essentially because I can't build myself.

there are 8 year olds, that have assembled a PC, theres a 11 year old on here who has done several, I've built like 4 now for family and friends, its like paying a guy $400 to use a screwdriver

Seriously, did you even read the whole thread?
I'm not allowed because my FAMILY SAYS I'M NOT ALLOWED TO. I'm sure I'm plenty intelligent enough to build myself, but alas, I can't.

Well there was a poor attempt and one well thought out attempt, which seemed liked the option to me.
Irrelevant to what anyone was saying though.
