When changing a major component, like the motherboard especially, you have to reinstall Windows.

Please do no use, the power supply included with the case. They're very unreliable. Look for FSP, XClio, or Rosewill RP550 brands.

to keep all my programs intact wouldnt a repair install work?
Do retail boxed processors come with heatsinks?
no overclocking

I'm not sure about your first question, but retail boxed processors, are included with the stock heatsink.

Default Re: possible new build need need comments and suggestions

i think im going with a retail processor then

MegaComputer.ca - Intel Pentium D 915 2.8GHz (800FSB 2X2MB L2 Cache Retail Box)

also can anyone point out a site that can tell me how to install a 775 processor and heatsink. This is my Very first build so i'm a bit of a N00B lol.

Here's a link he can actually use for that CPU:
MegaComputer.ca - Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.60 GHz (800FSB 1MB L2 Cache)

And it is only $1 more, too.
