Hi Guys, Well I posted a few days ago on having ABS build a CPU.After seeing the limitations of their parts available. I decided to bite the bullet & try it myself! Can you please check over these parts & let me now if something won't work or I'm missing something? BTW, I will be getting that type of harddrive, but I'm getting the Retail version locally.
I've got a few questions right up front here.
The floppy dive is only OEM-what else do I need as far as cables or anything else goes?
I intend to have a dialup & an earthlink connection. I ordered the phone modem & they will provide the cable modem, but do I need any NIC cards with this motherboard? If so what brand is good please?
Is the 350W Fortran enough for power?

Its called a PC not a CPU. The CPU would be the AMD 2500+ yer getting. Sorry man, but it gets to you after a while. So if one more person knows the correct terminology, it's that much better. PC stands for Personal Computer and CPU stands for Central Processing Unit.
Yes everything looks good. Good prices too.
-Faster, Better, Stronger ...mmm Cake
-Windows makes baby Jesus cry
In the quest to find good prices, I think I've noticed that you're buying this stuff from newegg (as many of our prices are the same as the ones listed there). If this is true, you might as well get the Sapphire card with 256 megs of RAM (newegg has it for 3 bucks more). Anyone know why this may be foolish (i wonder why it is so very close in price..hmm...)?
PC stands for Personal Computer and CPU stands for Central Processing Unit.
Then why the hell do some games still call the player played by the AI the CPU? So if I have a P4, will it play better than a P3? So when they say that AMD is good for gaming, does that mean that when I get an AMD, games would be harder?
POST is way overrated, the black screen and beeps should be enough for most people.

It is (I have one), but don't get too excited, there are hardly any 8x DVD discs to be found (and no 8x DVD+Rs at all), and if you find them, they tend to be expensive. By the time they get common, its quite possible you may want throw the DVDR away and get a double sided DVDR instead. it just stinks to have to recode a DVD movie to fit on a single sided 4.3 GB disc, it takes forever. By comparison, burning it (even at "only" 4x) only takes a very short time. Unless you main purpose is to create data DVD's, don't worry about 4x versus 8x much.
