Ok here is the lowdown on what I'm doing, I'm building this:
Fixt your links... - Ethereal_Dragon
RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP
Core 2 Duo E6300
Need to get
Western Digital WD3200KS 320GB
OCZ Gold (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800
GIGABYTE GA-965G-DS3 LGA 775
(Still need but waiting til vista comes out so I can get Xp a little cheaper)
eDimensional Audio FX
HIPER HPU-4K580-MS ATX12V v2.2 580W
A few things I would like to know before I buy the rest would be this.
1. The Heat sink that I want is all nice and quiet but the stock fan that came with the intel cpu looks tempting to stay with and I'm trying to save some money because im only 14 and it comes buy scarcely. So should I still stay with the one I chose or stay with the stock fan?
2. The timing on the memory is 5-5-5-12 and the mobo says: Notice: Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets. Will I have to configure anything before I put these in??? ( I really need to know this) Because I might need to get my friends ddr2 memory to configure this.
3. the hard drive is sata and I want to know if its compatible with my mobo.
4. This might sound stupid but is the video card compatible with the mobo? I think it is but just checking.
I would really be greatful to everyone that can help me. Please answer this and not just pass it up I really need some answers here. Thank you.
