This list is essentially cut and paste from Troy's recommendations (it is more his build than mine ) . But I am still open to suggestions.
I have a few more questions
I am still curious about the Vista 32 bit or 64 bit.
I would like to use my old HD that has XP on it. Should I put the whole thing together first, power it up and install windows or leave of my old HD off and add it later?
What about keeping it cool?
