OK, so I've become really quite interested in computer building lately and I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to build my first PC - if my wallet will let me. I remember as a younger kid (I'm only 16) playing games like age of empires and the sims etc. As i get older though, so does my crappy computer, which obviously isn't going to support games like Half-Life and Crysis. So I've gone and researched it all, its quite fascinating when you think about it - just a box of wires producing this amazing thing on the screen. Ive got to the end of choosing all the main parts, CPU, M.B. etc but I'm not sure what type of PSU to get, its a fairly average gaming PC and i don't want to go over the top with a lot of power - just enough should be good. Heres what I've got...
CPU - Athlon 64 X2 3800+ -Heatsink is Zalman CNPS8700
M.B. - Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
RAM - Corsair XMS2 2GB (twin)
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracudda 7200 320GB
Graphics Card - nVidia GeForce 7100GS 256MB
Monitor - will be LCD 17"
If you could also recommend a cd drive, if i need fans or not and/or suggestions for the setup ive got.
THANKS so much if you can help. Lehmo.
