Thanks akhilles. I've seen some illustrations showing the mobo placed on the box it came in with what looked like power cables, wires, etc attached to it. If I assembled the mobo and installed it in the case and if for some reason it didn't POST, I'll come back here for more info. This will be my first build and also I'll add that this forum sure has a lot of helpful info.
I think I still have a pair of Dell Dimension XPS B866r speakers in storage for the beep codes.
