I'm ordering these parts from Newegg tomorrow morning. Please review to see that I'm not making any mistakes that n00bs usually make on their first computer build.

  1. Your chosen parts are fine. Alvin's suggestions are good if you're going to do any overclocking at all.
  2. "at all"
  3. Hey guys I don't plan on overclocking because I don't know how to.

    I made some changes to the motherboard. I switched to this one since it's free shipping and has 2 pci-e slots

    Would the ram still work with this board? The ram I selected says PC3 10666. What does the 10666 mean?

    Heres the ram
