Default Questions??

Hey Everyone,

I'm thinking about building a new comp and I have some questions about it. The comp I have right now sucks it can hardly handle 1.6

Heres the parts that im gonna put in it.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16856119006

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148051

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145026

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819104203

I know its not the best but thats all money I have to spend on it and anything is better then the pc Im using now.

My question is do I need to buy a fan for the cpu or does the barebone come with it? Is it hard to put a cpu in? I put hard drives and video cards in is it that easy?

How well do you think this comp will perform?



Also I already have all the other things for it like keyboard, mouse etc...







Thanks everyone
