And I'm already off to a great start.

I got a 802.11b Enhanced (22Mbps) router for $49.99CDN, and a 802.11b Enahcned (22Mbps) PCI card for $49.99CDN.

His parents won't let him run CAT5e, so this will do. :)

The whole system (Athlon XP 2500+ Barton, 512MB PC3200, GigabytenForce 2, Wireless connection, Radeon 9600 Pro, etc) will total ~700CDN.

Lucky guy. My parents bought me three pairs of pants and a new watch strap.

It's a meta-gift.

His brother is supplying the case, PSU, CPU, HD, and mobo.

Sister will supply the CD-RW/DVD-ROM (cheapass).

I will supply everything else.

That's pretty close to what I have on my game PC Ash.

you do realise that 'BF' stands for Boy Friend right. :)

SP At least now you can wear pants while using the computer.

It's not a question of whether or not I can, it's a question of whether or not I want to.

I understood all of it, from the fact that he was building it for his boyfriend to the 802.11b being a wireless thingy. Only thing I didn't was the gigabytenforce 2...

I don't understand any of it apart from boyfriend, pants and watchstrap. All the other crap is beyond me.
