    I reckon about everything I've done to my PC was scary the first time, to be honest.
    Hec, I recall a little anxiety the first time I pushed the power button.

    But now, more and more falls into the category of "Been there - Done that".:cool:

    Sounds like a plan there, but make sure to get one that is designed for the AthlonXP processor. The shims have cut-outs for the bridges (so nothing shorts out), and the layouts are a little different between the two Athlon processor types. ;)

    I had my friend (who's a qualified electrician) make me up a grounding lead. It's just a normal lead that plugs into the power supply, but only the earth wire is connected. There's also a 1 megaohm resistor in there so I don't get zapped if another device in the house shorts out :)

    I think it would cost more to ship to Holland than to make one yourself MySTiCuSS :cool:
