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
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.
