Default Re: Going to put the order in a newegg tomorrow

I just noticed that the Asus Board I bought from newegg is not for sale anymore. Does this mean that I bought an out of date board that just got taken off, or that too many people are buying them and they are out?

I guess I'm just freaking out because this is my first build.

Also, I looked at that computer building guide and saw stuff about starting the computer before attaching hard drives/dvd drives and going through the BIOS and "CMOS Setup Utility", then attaching your SATA HD and booting and messing with that, and then finally booting for a third time and installing your OS.

I guess I just assumed I could throw everything together and put in my XP install cd and get it going right away.

Is the multi-boot system the best way to get the computer going or do people just put it all together and load an OS?
