hey guys, so im making my first build and this is what i got so far. any suggestions on replacements, quality, etc would be greatly appreciated. also, is everything compatabile? im not too advanced in this stuff so i could use your help lol.
^Agreed. MSI makes excellent (!) products, and I'm running one of their motherboards right now... they're of a better build quality than Biostar is for the price.
I have an OCZ ModXStream 600w power supply, and it's rock solid. Good choice with the same thing in 700w... once again, for the price, it's an excellent unit.
I'd hold off on buying a monitor online, unless you've gone to a store and looked at them first. There are subtle differences between monitor brands which you won't notice otherwise... some monitors just have a different look than others.
The Spinpoint F3 is also a nice hard drive for the money. Just to throw an alternative out there, though: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The WD RE4 is an enterprise class hard drive, and while it only has half of the capacity, you'll gain a little bit in reliability over Seagate's F3. If you feel you could use the extra space of the F3, though, then go ahead and get it; both drives are well built.
