Default Re: Bying a case now what?

internal. external harddrives are only for backing up files really, or if you want to bring your harddrive over to your friends house for crumpets and tea. Get an internal harddrrive. I reccomend a western digital harddrive, sata or ide (sata is faster tho), at least 80 gb, and at least 7200 rpm.

EDIT: What you really should do is pick a motherboard first. Pick either intel or AMD, and look to spend anywhere from $90 - $200 (i usually spend about $115 which gets me a fairly good one) on it. Read the reviews, for your first build, do not buy any part without reviews for it that are good. Just to ensure you dont run into problems. If you see in a review someone ran into a problem with that part, maybe look into how you would go about fixing that problem with that part, rather then buying a different one. Once you've got your motherboard, find out what kind of socket cpu it supports. then use that to buy a compatible cpu. then find out what ram is compatible with it and buy your ram based off of that. same with the video card, sound card (sound cards are optional), and your harddrives.

Karma/rep is always appreciated

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who can read binary, and those who can't.

the mobo is for amd processors and u said u want a pentium D. Also the memory is not compatible with the mobo.

And any budget for the vid card? If not then get 7800GTX, and if money ain't a problem get a SLI mobo and 2 of those cards.
