The mistakes I have done when building my current PC

I'm sure you would say I have an awesome PC, and that I should have pretty happy with what I have got. But there are so many areas to improve and I could have made it perfect if not for the following mistakes I've made when choosing the components.
 
The PSU
 
The PSU I have in the rig is a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 850W model. It is very stable and has enough juice to power the system even if I add a 3rd graphics card. However, the mistake I made was choosing this series: the TX series. TX series has one *big* problem. The cables are non-modular. While some people might say modular cables are unreliable and such, but it would have been a whole lot better if I could remove those ATX molex connectors from the PSU. I don't need them, but they are there. I should have bought the HX850 which is pretty much the TX850 with modular power cables.

Changing the internet settings on the iPhone 3GS

Now that I have unlocked my iPhone 3GS, I thought all my problems were gone. But all of a sudden, I remembered something. Inserting the SIM alone wouldn't allow me to use data. I have to specify data settings for Mobitel (the carrier I am intending to use back in SL) to get it to work.

I do not remember anywhere I could change those settings. If I put in a Softbank iPhone SIM, it would work. That much I know. I googled where the settings page should be, but I couldn't find it in my phone. Normally, there should be an option called "Cellular Data Network" which I can jump into. Softbank must have disabled that option. Oh well, time to look for a solution.
 
There seemed to be many ways to get this to work. I could install a profile with the custom network settings (which I did but couldn't edit the settings on the fly), or I could use a Jailbreak app called APN Editing (which didn't install onto my phone) or hacking the carrier.plist file.
