Some cases have a stock standard IO Panel that would of been used on motherboards about 3+ years ago. Those IO Panels are removalable.

Ya, you just have to push it with the back end of the screw driver, and it comes straight off..

I think putting the replacement one is sometimes the hard part

thx hikaricloud for that list. i took a look at that cpu and mobo combo, and it looks like a good deal, but now its starting to stray from my budget unfortunately. i don't need a real big powerhouse, just something relatively fast and i think the cpu i picked out can handle that. i know for sure i will upgrading it but in the future though.

as for the ram, if i really wont see a diff between the 800 or 1066, then i guess ill go for the 800's. in that case however, you provided me a link with these 800 ones before. for 5$ more
would they still be good?

Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

hm. i think ill pick up that vista and hdd combo though, it would end up giving me the same os i wanted with a larger hdd for less money. definitly good.

for the dvd drive, i think the one i chose will do good. the one you selected has all types of diff write speeds and what not which i dont think ill ever use it for. as long as it can read a disc im good

also for the case, ehh it seems a little dull looking. all black. and it has the psu mount on the bottom which i find awkward..

last thing. i've read the reviews for lots of hardware about the mir's and tbh i personally wouldnt count on them. if its not a substantial amount of money, id honestly prob forget.

thx though.


*wow sry for really long post*

*also sry for replying so late, just got back from school*

The PI Blacks are great, really nice for overclocking.

Well, you're getting a great machine for just over 600 bucks, and there's only one MIR. All MIRs are a pain, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try it.

By the way, your drive that you picked out doesn't burn DVDs, and for about 4 bucks more you can have a DVD burner. :P It will be better, trust me.

ok so ill definitly choose the blacks and that dvd drive, and that os/hdd deal too.

and like i mentioned, that cpu/mobo deal is a lil more expensive, but i must admit it is tempting and lingering in my mind though

how much better is that mobo though? the only thing i really saw is that it has 1 pcie slot more. ill be using my gpu in the 2.0x 16 slot so what can i really use the pcie for anyway.idk

bundled with that cpu, it seems like an attractive deal...idk....lol

Worth it and that bundle deal will go away at the end of the month knowing newegg. I picked up the PII 940 with that mobo as a bundle and I am wetting myself waiting for it to arrive

thats the thing though, i know that im gonna get these parts, but my wallet will not be ready for them most probably until after this month ends (10 days?). also i am stilllll thinking... i think my noggin needs a faster cpu to process this great deal relative to the time till the end of the month....divided by 7... ...

how hard is it to setup raid? i would want to setup raid 1 but ive never done it before so i wouldnt know where to start

I wouldn't set up RAID 1 to be honest, it's not a viable backup solution. You would be better off getting a bigger second HDD for a backup.

Besides, you can't set up RAID without a second identical HDD. If you wanted to get one later, we could help out.
