I think I like the case. Looks a lot like the CPU though.

going to pick up another fan and thermal paste at bestbuy with a gift card i have laying around. and no hdd or optical listed b/c their coming out of my old HP
September 23, 2008 2:01:15 AM

Nice looking, i was thinking about that build for a little while but i have a strong desire for quad cores. Oh and tell me how much a fan cost at best buy so i can go pick one up when i build mine.
September 23, 2008 2:02:26 AM

i saw a 120mm at circuit city for 9.99 so i figure about the same i hope
September 23, 2008 2:03:59 AM

Oh good cause i don't want to pay $15 for a fan off newegg since none of them have free shipping. Just remember to also pick an antistatic wristband if you don't already have one around.
September 23, 2008 2:41:01 AM

and where can i pick up a antistatic wristband?
September 23, 2008 10:20:12 PM

Yeah, just check out best buy, circuit city or something (I have local computer stores that sell them) cause it is not worth 11 dollars.

Final question and pointers tomorrow everything arrives and late this evening after I'm done with research I'll be reformating this HDD to use in the build, does anyone have a good link to almost play by play construction of the comp, like put motherboard in or put cpu on mobo then put in case then install OS first or bios etc etc....any help will be greatly appreciated....and also can I install a heatsink on the cpu after its built and running or should I try to find one tomorrow since i picked up some thermal paste and a anti-static band today for 20 bucks......but for the most part any play by play is greatly needed and appreciated thanks.

any tips on easiest way to format my drives?
September 24, 2008 11:54:30 PM

don't understand why when i click format on the c drive it tells me I can't, other ways of formatting the hdd want to get that wiped out before i start building everything. thanks
