Ophan Posted March 3, 2009 Share Posted March 3, 2009 (edited) So, I've gotten the go ahead from my financial department, that being mi madri lol, that we've the funds for a new computer. She wanted to go out and buy one from Best Buy, but I convinced her I could get a lot more bang for the buck by building one myself. I've taken an A+ course and passed with fly colors so I know my way around a computer fairly decently. I had a string of bad luck when we were selecting our parts for the build during the course, coming down with the flue for a few days and I missed everything wouldn't ya'know? But anyway, back on subject. I wanted to make sure everything was compatible with everything. I've giving it the once over and the twice over and I'm still not really sure on a few things. Don't want to have to tell Mom that this and this need to be ordered to complete the build lol. I designed the build around what I wanted it to do, and started with the MoBo. So here's my list of hardware for the build: I used Tiger Direct for these two because NewEgg didn't have them, and it was a really nice deal in my eyes, plus I liked the case. Fits my personal style as well as features an on board temp gauge. Forgot to mention the Power supply is bundled with the case XD The Case The GPU unit Now the stuff I was able to get on NewEgg: Memory/RAM MotherBoard CPU Now for some less important stuff, but still wanted it for the build especially the fans: Blue LED 120mm Fan 120mm Fan, non LED DVD burner HardDrive Also, a note... Not sure, but I think I'll have all my cables and that. The MoBo comes with a few of the necessities. Feel free to critique if you want, I'd be glad to hear your comments. I'm going to get Vista Home Premium for the OS 64x Edited March 4, 2009 by Ophan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
