Building today, What to expect?
 
Well I should be getting the rest of my parts today. They are listed below. I haven't built in awhile but I'm assuming that it can't be that much different. I don't plan on doing any OCing as of yet, just slapping everything together stock and hoping for something good...

If anyone can look at my parts and maybe suggest driver / bios updates or something like that that can make it smoother I would appreciate it..

Also if there looks to be some kind of compatability issue from the parts below I should probably know that as well..

Thanks all...

Don't worry. Everything is compatible in that list. Let us know how your build does, when you're done.

Here would be the latest driver, for your graphic card:
ForceWare Windows XP/Media Center Edition

Not right away. Gonna wait until I can afford the proper cooling system, heatsinks, fans, whatever... When I get to that point I'm sure I will be posting some questions...

I'll hopefully post some pics later tonight or tomorrow...
