Real nice. Nice detail, and good pictures. I think we can give a sticky a try too, and see how things go.

I say unstick this and just put a link in the guides thread. That's where all of the other guides are.

That is still a consideration. I want to see what others think before I make a final home for this.

Yeah, the stickies in general hardware/software are getting a little excessive.

You do have a point. I put a link to this in the guide section, and will be un-sticking this.

STICKY!

I like it, very informative for new members.

So we don't have to explain it a thousand times.

Well, it's great, the only thing is I think 90% of users won't want to read through that whole thing.

Thats a great guide for new members.

Just a few things:

There's no mention of using a grounding strap. Now alot of people dont bother with these but IMO its always better to use it, especially when they cost a few pounds, compared to having to pay for a new GPU etc.
You mention intel uses a socket 775, but no mention of AMD's latest AM2 socket.
You need to mention that PCI-E x 16 is the best for GPU's
