As the title reads...
CPU - Will naturally be an athelon 64 bit of some fashion, then i suppose I need a heat sink as well. Could use some advice in this area regarding the best buy.
GPU - from what I read on these forums the most popular choice is the 6600GT, but I still need alot of counseling in this area.
Memory - 2x 1gig sticks of ram, but I'm uncertain what the best ram out there is... also, does it matter how you couple the RAM with the CPU, will some combinations have adverse effects?
mobo - I'm completely lost in this area, know nothing about them, need much help.
case - this shouldn't be awfully hard. Not looking to spend huge sums of money on some water cooling system, I won't be OCing. Just need something that doesn't look awful and has good air flow, and holds the pieces in place
hard drive - 200gig, but I think I can handle this one myself, not so hard.
case fans - i was told this might be good to have... for someone who isn't OCing, is it needed?
PSU - i suppose i'll figgure this one out after I decide on all the other pieces.
getting a floppy and dvd/cd rom and burner from my old box, so that's no worry.
does anyone have any advice for any of these, or any full builds that come to mind? My hardware knowledge is limited, so any help would be greatly appreciate
thanks in advance.
