Hey there, I've decided to try and build a new PC using parts from an xps 420 dell I have (Core 2 quad, 3GB DDR2 Ram, ATI 2400). This is my first time building my own PC so I'm not too sure on what parts I'd need to purchase. Especially the motherboard, I had this one in mind

though I can't seem to find a place to purchase it. Does anyone know of another motherboard that's just as good?

1. The X38 is old tech. Get a P45. Generally, I recommend the P45-UD3L.

2. List full specs including PSU,etc.

3. You will need:
* A new motherboard
* Possibly a retail copy of your OS as the OEM copy won't probably activate.
* Will need a GPU
* You may need a new PSU.
* You will probably want a new case as well.

4. All of these items mentioned can be bought here: http://www.newegg.com/
