Okay...so I watched the video...several times. Then I bought the i5 processor with the Z787 chip. It's kind of mind boggling in that it has a ps-2 port with a split green/purple female connector which isn't a standard recognized in today's computer. Scott doesn't refer to this connector during his instruction.
However, he does go into great detail about most every other option.
