Re: rebuilding my first computer
Indeed, the computer is pretty much overkill for just surfing internet, and downloading files fast - after getting an average computer, you should of sorted out a decent interent connection (Wired / Wireless) and components (router etc), if you havent already! However since you have already bought them, will work on components side.. Watching videos on youtube isnt too tasking but hey!
Ideally it would be nice to know what you are rebuilding (your old build?) To me it looks like a completely new build, except a hard / DVD Drive. Shouldnt have too many problems. Just make sure you have all the latest updates (BIOS, Drivers etc) for your components, and you should be ok.
So what do you need help with, making this go smoothly? I personally wouldnt overclock your processor to start with - it should be plenty powerful enough for what you need it to do @ 3.3GHZ. Also usual things, make sure you are working in a static free environment, keep receipts etc, lay things out, and know what order you are going to do things.. Umm, thermal paste on processor, clean the old case out (if you are using it) before hand with some compressed air while everything is out of it, that sort of stuff!
