EDIT: Oh man! Like Forgot2register said - you guys should've done a "Now you know! And knowing is half the battle." at the end! :(

Must have cut a hole in that box below the case, there's no way all of those boxes would have fitted in there!

Hah.  Nice.  Though I kinda wish this was an actual tutorial.  I've never built a computer and thinking about doing so next year.  The idea's kinda scary.

Would have been great if Brad pulled out a 'Here is one I made earlier' computer and just plugged it in and worked. Really funny video though. So wish it was this easy, just got mine done and well, it was troublesome but worth it.

This video almost seemed like it was necessary. Most video game message boards that discuss Giant Bomb stuff have loads of PC gamers complaining that these guys never discuss PC related stuff.
 
This oughtta make some people happy.

I think it is safe to say it by now..  Jeff getting fired from Gamespot was one of the best things to happen in the gaming industry.  We got THIS because of that event. 
 
To think, we all complained at the time! 
 
Love the Bomb.

I learned how to build a Bomb and a Computer on Giantbomb.com. "What's that?" you ask? Well, it's a site, about video games.
