Now; I have questions, which is the most important part of this long post (thanks to those of you who really do bother to read this, I really appreciate it)
1. Most important: Do all those parts fit? does my Mobo support everything?
2. Will that case PSU work well? This computer will be on for the majority of the day, it will be a server for the most part, so I need it to be reliable.
3. I'm a real noob on CD/DVD drives. Will the one I ordered be able to handle all Cd's and Dvd's and all installations. I would also like to be able to burn stuff on Cd's/DVD's, so it would help if that would happen. I can add about 15 or so more dollars to the drive to make it better.
4. There is a chance I will be able to go over my 800 dollar limit, because of awards tommorow for a competition I'm in. What part should I improve most? (preferably not the video card, unless it's crucial). My new budget will probably be around 900.
5. Is that a good setup? Lol.
And please post any other comments that you have.
Please people, I usually don't ask a lot from anyone in these forums, but this computer is really important to me, so I would really like feedback.
Thanks a ton.
