I'm about ready to buy all the parts I want and build my new computer.
Here's a list of the stuff I'm getting:
Also, I'll be running Vista Business edition. I'll also be keeping my 7600gt video card for a couple months until I decide between an ATI and an Nvidia dx10 card.
And I also already have the cd/dvd drives and mouse I'll be using.
I'm just looking for a couple things here:
Compatibility - All this stuff should be compatible, but I'd hate to get it all and find out I made a dumb mistake. Can someone confirm that this stuff is all compatible?
Recommendations - I don't want to spend much more money, but if anybody has recommendations, I'll be glad to hear them.
Lastly, I've never build a computer before. Are there any tools/oddities that I'll need for the actual build process? Will I need thermal paste for the processor I selected?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
