Well here it is, I finally ordered everything for my first build. Hope it all looks ok. Been drooling over this for months, and it will be here by friday. Have a look, and if you think of anything I should get prepared for please share it with me. This is a gaming machine only, and I do plan to OC, when I learn how. Besides updating the bios, and running memtest on the ram, what else should I do to get this thing up and running?
