Default Re: Building a computer...need help

Alright. A few last questions. Do I need to purchase a power cable? What about any other cables? And, is there anything special I need to know? I seen on a review for the motherboard, there are a lot of options to set when you first use it, any tips for that? Once again, thanks for all the help guys

i was thinking 400 was a bit low even though i posted it, you could get the 500 or 600W version of liberty powersupply. those are of the best powersupplies on the market. also won quite a few awards i hear here's the links for them:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817194004

the 500W seems to have better reviews and is more in your price range i would get that 1 personally. i have a 520W right now and it seems 2 be good for me but when i upgrade my components at the beginning of next year i might get a new PSU like it

your computer case should have a powercord with it. if you don't have a powercord you can use i would look at getting 1

about ur question on your motherboard, there are things you can do but the manual will tell u everything about your motherboard inparticurally(sp, god i can't spell )
