No onboard wireless on your mb. You would need a usb or pci card to receive wireless.

that is the link to the mb you chose on the egg. I just posted the link so you could confirm the lan status of it.

Just pick up a usb wireless stick. They can be useful to have.

600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode
750W will be more than enough.

Thnx for the info. Slowly getting the parts one by one, should be done by christmas (money is tight) Putting it together should be a blast, and a headache.

Gotta be honest I went with AMD solely based on reviews and that GHz number. I'd like to see what the opposite brand has to offer since all my past computers have intel parts. How can I tell what processor is faster?
