Change of plan: I'm now going to build the same exact machine myself. The Falcon Northwest site says there a no compatiblity issues, so I think I'm good to go. What does everyone think? Do I need the 550 watt supply?
And when I buy the processor, should I buy the OEM (what does that mean, anyways?), or the one with the heatsink and fan. Could someone also tell me what the heatsink does?
