I will be showing both Socket (2x) 775, Socket AM2 and maybe Socket 939 depends if my friend lets me take it from him for a while

PARTS NEEDED

MX-2 thermal paste
Phillips head screw driver
zip ties

i think thats about it.. lol
well and i guess all the screws that came w/ the cases

CPU's i will be Installing
Q6600, and 4200+ (both am2 and 939)

Video Cards
fx5500, 8800gt, and 8800gtx

Ram
OCZ Titanium, G.SKill HQ's, and Some ddr667 corsair sticks

motherboards
asus p5n32-e SLi, EVGA 680i A1 (that one will be tomorrow), MSI k8n SLi Platinum, and another MSI 939 board.. don't remember name

power supplies

Yeah, I'd appreciate that Nos. A few of my things listed may change by the time I can actually order them

first 1 is my friend eli, i gave him my video card and mobo for my new 28 inch monitor! so he's taking that, and im' putting it in his thermaltake thermal rock or something like that.. and by doing that, he's getting rid of his old socket 939 rig w/ a 4200+, so i may set that up in my old thermaltake armor.. but we'll see

the last one is for my friend miguel, i just ordered him a socket am2 rig, cuz he wants to start playing cs:s w/ me! haha

and monagi, i'll take alot of pictures of it tonite, i have the black thermaltake armor, that doesnt have the side window, jsut the two air ducts.. it was the "amd" edition for socket F or whatever it was... but its the same exact thing

ok, that'll do, I did feel really guilty about freeloading $140 of you (until I got my job to pay you back) I'll upgrade to something else when I get the chance
