Default Hurry It Along

I am building a computer and am about halfway done. I want to know if what I've done is right and I want to turn the computer on. Is is possible to turn a computer on with just the mobo, graphics card, RAM, PSU, keyboard, mouse, and CPU? just curious..

Matt

You mean without a hard drive? Yes, you can. It will POST and then say it can't find an operating system. So it's a good way to test if the basics things are correctly installed.
