Default Have I Got Everything ...

Ive got a case, power supply, ram, floppy drive and some fans.

About to order a cpu, hard drive and cd-rw.

Then all that is left is the gfx card right ?

Also, is it essential to get some artic silver stuff or similar ?

Thanks

Thermal paste can only be used with an aftermarket heatsink, so if you plan on using the stock heatsink, it will instead use a thermal pad which is included with it.

Just scrape it off with a razor then clean with alchohol (rubbing, no doubt)..
