Again, that's just knit-picking. I'd also go ahead and buy an anti-static wrist strap for installation. Since this is your first build I'm assuming you don't already have one. Good luck! | Report abuse PC4eva July 20, 2011 1:55:54 PM OK Buying the parts today! My dad is a programmer and has a lot of extra computers laying around, so I'll just find a better PSU in there | Report abuse PC4eva July 20, 2011 8:19:48 PM I bought the parts! Now all I have left to do is build and install the OS! Yay!!! | Report abuse calmstateofmind July 22, 2011 12:19:27 AM Awesome!
