I put the parts together earlier today and tested it by starting it up. So far it looks like all of the hardware is functional. I installed windows 7 x64 on it and started to install some drivers. I installed the ones from the motherboard and graphics card discs first and then ran windows update to get more updates. When i restarted my computer for the updates, it wouldn't boot up windows at all. It freezes precisely at the "Starting windows" screen with the windows logo floating around. I tried loading the w7 disc again, and it will freeze at the same "Staring windows" screen on the install disc. I tried booting up the hard drive from my old computer and it froze at the exact same spot. I couldn't even reinstall windows 7 because it would freeze on the disc as well. I finally came up with a solution to reinstall windows. I used a windows XP boot disc to delete the partions of the hard drive with windows 7 on it. After doing that i was able to reinstall windows 7 from the disc again. I've cycled through this a couple times now (installing windows 7), but it continues to freeze at the starting windows screen with the logo every time i restart after installing and i have to go through the process of deleting partions in order to reinstall. Occasionally it will restart once after i install windows, but most of the time it will freeze at the windows logo every time i shut it off and turn it back on.
