First time building a machine and dont really have that much experience with them to be honest. Ive already purcahsed a few items, and would look forward to any thoughts etc.
I wouldn't really be a big gamer, but would like a machine capable of going into the future a bit without much tinkering.
Antec Nine Hundred Two Ultimate Gamer Case with no PSU for Complete Customisation
Corsair CMP8GX3M2A1600C9 Dominator 8GB (2 x 4G
Do you need to fill all the memory slots on the motherbaord?
Sapphire HD5770 1GB GDDR5
I would eventually like to link up to a large TV of some sort in the future.
What can anybody tell me with regard to using 2 graphics cards?
Cooler and Heatsink:
Zalman - CPU Heatsink + 120 mm Fan Kit - PWM - CNPS9900A LED
Cooler Master Silent PRO 600W Modular PSU
Hard Disk Drive:
Seagate OEM 500GB Barracuda 7200.12 Internal Hard Disk Drive
The other pieces of equipment i could use some help or advice on.
I have an idea for the CPU:
Intel I7-950 Nehalem Quad Core Processor
but dont really have a clue on what motherbaord to pair it with. Dont really want to buy someting for it not to work together etc.
Liteon IHAS324-32 24x Internal DVDRW Black Retail SATA
Any other bits and pieces i might be forgetting.
I am quite excited as to how its going to turn out, or how much of a disaster it might be. LOL
PS Once its all pieced together, and turn it on how to you get Windows to install?
Sorry for all the basic and elementary questions.
