Well I just ordered and a few quick questions.
Here is what I ordered
XFX Geforce 260 Core 216
OCZ Modstream 600 Watt Pro
Thermal Compound Just In Case
Samsung DVD Burner
Western Digital 640 gig Hard drive
4 Gigs G.Skill RAM
Vista with Windows 7 upgrade
AMD Phenom II 940 BE
Power Cable Extender Just in Case
How is that card? I seem to be getting all types of reviews for it, they aren't really consistent in terms of rating.
Am I missing anything? (I got cathodes)
What can I expect when I open the box up, any tips or pointers? (First build)
You guys have any good guides?
Now some things I noticed.
What is up with the 940? It's like in stock for an hour or two and then gone, I got lucky and got it just before I was about to order the 955.
Also I noticed some things came from different states, will they come in their own box or will it all be together?
I really need guides, I've been reading like the first three google pages but nothing seems to cover everything I have.
Please guys tips, comments, pointers
(How to apply thermal paste, good cable management cooling etc.!)
Thanks for helping me pick these parts
Also one thing, do you guys like Build Threads? Like me taking photos step by step, or is that not a practice here as I haven't seen many?
