Hey, the reason why I made this thread was because I had a few questions. Now I would have done more research but I need to order all the computer parts I picked out soon. So I figured Id better post here to see if their all compadable. I would rather be safer than sorry...
So, I wanted to build a new gaming computer( A higher end one)
so I can play games like Crysis and Alan Wake.
All the parts I'm listing below came to about $900.00 and I dont really want to go over that with other stuff. Ok, so heres the list, if you want me to add any more info just tell me.
NZXT Apollo NP ATX Mid Tower Case:
Intel Core 2 Duo E660 Conroe:
Intel Socket T G965 Atx Mother Board:
Seagate Barracuda 320GB Hard Drive:
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Hiper 530W Power Supply:
Ok, so thats what I was Planning on getting. I have a BFG Geforce 7800GT Graphics Card in my other computer that I'm Planning on putting in this. But I was looking to upgrade the graphics card a little later. I also have a dvd-rw drive I can use.
Does Every thing look ok for what I listed?
I also had a few other questions:
Do I need any extra fans for somthing like the CPU? Or is the stock one good? I heard the Cpu needs Greese or a thermal pad, do the Cpu's normally come with that stuff?
I have also been hearing that you should wear a ant-static wrist band? Is that really necesary?
And for the last question I wanted to know if theres any thing I should look out for?(That I could Possibly make a mistake and fry my whole computer) I keep hearing all these horror story about peoples whole compters frying. Does it really happen that often?
Like I said before, Sorry I couldnt do more research into all this stuff. I just need to order these soon and I thought it would be best and quickest if I posted this here. If any one could help me out I would apreciate it.
