Total price with Arctic Sliver heat Sink, DL DVD Buner and 52-1 card reader which I did not list is $1,078.94 with Shipping.
So thats my setup, how is it?
Since I'm not going to overclocking is the stock fan ok?
Is the 680i board a good choice or should I go with a 650i? I hear good and bad about 680i
have a upgrade copy of Windows vista that came with my laptop I have not used. Can I use it with my new build? If I can do I have to install Windows XP before I install Vista or can I just do a Fresh install with Vista?
Also what are some things I need to worry about with my first build? Is there a video I can watch or a write up that can inform me with the ins and outs. I don't to mess up a $1xxx project.
Good news, building a computer is easy if read the included manuals. Anyway,
Nice Hard disk
Other than that i am hopelessly out of date with this stuff. I can say however that your stock fan will do a fine job if you dont OC, core2 runs nice an cool. The power supply looks ok to, i have an old 400 watt rosewill in a 5 year old computer and it still works great (or as a great as a PSU can be expected to).
