Hard Drive - Would appreciate any suggestions.. Not specifics as ill be going to MicroCenter in PA to get itunless you goto site and click on PA store at top of website.

CD DVD Rom - Haven't decided what yet also getting at MC next weekend.

Wireless Network Card - Not sure what I need to get at all fir this. I already have setup the wireless network in my house so I just need the card.

Mouse/Keyboard - has to be wireless I can handle this on my own haha. Also buying from local store maybe not MC. Best Buy might be cheaper.

    Hi there, nice build. I'll help you out as best I can.
    Without a doubt, the HDD you want is this one: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0340562 Super fast, super reliable, super deal.

    For a burner, look a this one: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0293049 Nice and cheap.

    For a wireless card, any PCI-e X1 or PCI card that is dual band/wireless N is a good buy.

    And for mouse and keyboard suggestions (I'm gonna go ahead :P) Razer's are all very good, but I like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104178&Tpk=mx%20518 Nice and cheap. Good quality too. It's cheaper on newegg, so if you want it be sure to order it.

    And yeah. that's pretty much it!
  2. Actually ya know any newegg suggestions will work I can always just get windows on weekend instead either way it wont be complete til Saturday :-( so much waiting.
  3. Lol, no worries. Most everything can be had from microcenter, except the MX518 <3
  4. Haha yea microcenter is awesome its an hour away from my house which sucks but its worth it.
  5. Anyone have suggestions about a wireless n network card/adapter that'd be good in the 25$-45$ price range. Also what kind of wireless keyboard and mouse should I get RF USB or Bluetooth and do I need something extra for Bluetooth? What are minimum specs I should be looking for on a good hard drive? Thanks again for the DVD ron suggestion thinking about ordering it today :-).
