Okay so I'm just about ready to begin installing my drivers and such. I am about to order this
Buy cheap discount Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP1 OEM Full Version
I got a friend who does a ton of networking for a business and he uses this company a lot and said for what I'm doing this OS should be fine.
I also have a side question... I do not have any internet hookups yet on this computer, is there a decent simple wireless card you guys can suggest that I can install in one fo the regular PCI slots? Most networks I run on are wireless.
Anyway, once I get a copy of windows here I'm taking the tower up to my friend's office and he will let me use a monitor and keyboard (they have tons of parts like this) and help me install everything.
I have the Antec 900 case, ABIT IP35-E board, two sticks of ballistix ram 2X1GB, the MSI 8800GTS G92 card, a seagate 160 GB HD, Lite on DVD burner, and intel Q6600 processor, and what will be XP Pro.
What order should I install all these components? I remember reading somewhere for windows to go on smoothly I want to install everything else before that, is this true?
Any info will be appreciated, thanks much in advance!
