Went to Micro Center (KC store 180 mi from where I live) and bought some of the components that were a deal there. One of the items I bought was an Asus MoBo. I didn't really plan on it at the time but the sales guy there talked me into it. Now I am having 2nd thoughts and need you all's advice. I got the Asus P5K-C. Was this a mistake? I wanted the Rampage but they didn't have any at the time. The CPU I got was the E8400. The Ram was 2X2GB Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5 ( I hope I didn't mess up there too...timing is 5-5-5-18). Please let me know I didn't screw up?
CPU: E8400 $189
Mobo: Asus P5KC $159
Case: Antec 900 $95
Ram: Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5 $110 (not counting $40 MIR)
DVD: Samsung Sata 20X $30
PSU: PCPower 610W $129 (Yeah I know I over paid)
GFX: EVGA 9800GTX $299 (not counting $20 MIR)
No way was I gonna pay $129 for a 32 bit Vista Home Prem. Also they didn't have my HDD (WD640AAKS). So gonna get the 64 bit Home Prem Vista and HDD from Egg. Along with the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 cpu cooler. Do I need that backplate for this cooler?
