    Same thing happened to me. I was upgrading on a PC, using Windows XP.
    I thought I'd bricked. Took it to the Apple store and the Genius wiped it ( I had backed up before attempting iOS 5 install.)
    She loaded 5.0 for me and Ta-Dah!

    I'm saving enough cabbage to get a Mac. Until then none of my devices are getting close to my clunky old PC.

    What if you back up everything, wipe it and set it up as a new device in iTunes? BTW did you build your own gaming rig?

    A colleague of mine builds them as a hobby. He swears by Radeon. That's cool that you BYO. Better than giving your money the Dell (Alienware)
    or HP (Voodoo).
