Final Thoughts

This build was a real pleasure from start to finish. The Antec case was great to work with: roomy and well laid-out, with excellent fit-and-finish. Everything installed without a hitch, and the build went real quick because we didn't have to install a power supply, video card, sound card, or networking card. All told, the build took about three hours, including doing the photography that accompanies this chapter, which is very fast. Your build time should be even shorter.

The initial boot went without any problems, and CMOS Setup reported that all devices were present and accounted for. I had Ubuntu installed within 25 minutes, and another half hour later I had the machine patched, the ASUS motherboard's drivers installed, and its BIOS updated.
