if you need a list of what makes a computer run i don't really think you should build your own computer. read up on it some more before you try. no offence, just saying what i think is best.

well yay ask questions and read up on it. i just don't think it's wise to learn how to build a computer with $2000's worth of parts,lol.

of coarse! be the best... for about a week, when some company somewhere out there releases a "slightly" better piece of hardware, you will then have an outdated POS!!!

thanks

Thanks for all your input guys. I'm not brand new in computers I just haven't built one yet. I've just messed around with old ones and now i want to build my own. Thanks again for all your help and I'm still open to more ideas. Bye.

Yea that list with all the links, don't forget to get a power supply with that. Computers don't run without power supplies.

good call

thanks for that. I wouldn't have noticed that. it'd be kinda hard to use a computer with no power supply. what size psu should i get: 300W, 350W, 400W, 420W, 460W, 500W, or a 600W. I think a 500W PSU would be nice. Is this a good choice or not. Please tell. I'm not really experienced. I think this 420W PSU is nice but is it good enough for the stuff listed above.
