I dont plan on overclocking, if i do it wont be much, but i plan on doing some light gaming on it once i get a decent pci-e card in the furture since i cant afford one right now. Remind me of other things i need for building a computer or parts i need that arent on this list.

Just thought of a question, does that mobo even have a connector for a floppy drive?

Another question, will a 20+4 connector work on a 24 pin connector mobo?

Looks pretty good, but if you don't plan on OC'ing, you probably don't need the extra CPU heatsink, especially since your case has a bunch of fans.

its an oem CPU, and the heatsink and fan is 10$ so its still cheaper then buying the processor retail with a crappy heatsink. Also, i still havent found answers for my 2 questions yet xD!

Yes it does. If you look at the pictures of the motherboard there is a connection lableed "FDD Connector". that is short for floppy disk connector.

I didn't realize it was OEM, in which case it is defiantly a good idea to get a heatsink. You wouldn't want to leave it naked.

drop ten more dollars and get the biostar T550 mobo.
you should overclock.
t550 is the best out for that cpu.

T550 looks great, but only has one IDE, and i dont think its possible to setup your CD drive and HDD on one IDE channel, but if i end up having to buy a new SATA drive because maxtor wont replace that harddrive that died on me, then ill consider the t550.
