Heat sink, exhaust fan, mouse, keyboard. Your hard disk should come with the red SATA connectors if not you wll have to buy one, and you will need an operating system.

Computergen,
When you say retail version are you talking about a Dell or HP, with the same components

No, he means retail processor instead of OEM. Retail means in the box with the fan and heatsink included. Other then that, no differences. Nice setup! And also, that MSI card is good, but you do not have PCI Express, so you can't get it, sorry to tell you that.

What is your budget on a video card? I can find you a very good one if you give me a budget to stay in.

Zen,

I'm trying to keep it around 800 bucks, right now I'm at 809.00 with the MSI card, so I don't want to go that much higher than what the MSI card was going to cost me which was 67.00

Oh, this was the CPU-
80701-2
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Processor Socket 939 Retail ***Free 2nd Day***
w/Fan and Heatsink

So I guess it was retail.

AMD Zen can you recommend that video card?...thanks

One more thing, I'm trying to get everything at Zipzoomfly because of their free shipping, I can't find the exact same memory as the one at newegg, I only found this one for around the same price. Is this any good
