Hello everybody. I'm Duke and I'm building my 1st ever build. I've ordered the parts from Newegg.com last Thursday and they should be arriving tomorrow [Monday] or Tuesday the 6th of May. Please rate my build and give me input. Oh and please give me some advice towards putting it together. If it helps I want to try my hand at overclocking with the stock cooler. Just a mild 300Mhz over the stock 2.4Ghz. I just want to be able to use the PC for games like Microsoft Flight Simulator and Company of Heroes, World of Warcraft and Crysis. My case is the discontinued Antec P150. I'll be using Vista Home Premium 32-bit for DX10.
I also have a SATA Western Digital 160GB hard drive at home as well as a Samsung SyncMaster 2053BW 20" Monitor. I got the PSU from Fry's Electronics near where I live which is Seattle, WA. I was $90 after MIR which was a deal compared to how much watts it had and the features. Right now, I'm out of money but I want to get an aftermarket cooler like one from Artic Cooling because it's much better than the stock Intel and it installs very easily. I don't want to mess with backplates even for the extra cooling performance.
