Ok, so, I'm making this thread on here and teksyndicate, so if this gets deleted or marked as innapropriate, here's a link to the one there: http://teksyndicate.com/forum/build-pc/updating-we-go/1...


So my case just arrived. and I bought my 3770k the other day. My case is a Corsair Vengeance C70 White. I'm also getting an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA1155, An EVGA GTX 670, 16gb RAM, A 750W modular psu, a 750gb hdd.. etc. I'll post pictures and updates as I get parts and start building.

first off, some pics of my case and CPU from microcenter and newegg.

Ok so. I got it built! after many hours of painstaking work. I'll post pics tmrw. I need helpt tho. i'm installing ubuntu temporarily just long. I got ubuntu dl'd and my usb flash drive plugged in (on a diff desktop ofc). what do I do from here? :/  I got it to boot so everything is working. all the fans are spinning and it booted into bios. I tried just putting the straight up download onto the flash drive and booting from that but I get a message that says something like " Blah blah blah please select boot device or put in boot device reboot and press any key blah" any help?
