OS- I basically just want to know if I should get Vista. I've read a lot of bad things about it,but I don't know if it's just the usual "it's different so I'm going to point out or make up every little thing bad about it I can think of" type of case.
Case- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811164081 I like the fact it has a big fan and already has a 500w power supply,I assume 500w is enough. advice welcomed. Not looking to spend more then $50,unless it comes with a power Supply.
Ram- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145040 I know more would be better,but I can get that later,unless it's better to have 2-1 gigs rather than 4-500mb.
HD-http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822210003 Agian,I don't know much about what to look for,just through reading have seen that rpm matters more than space,and sata better than IDE(No clue what the difference is,just seen it mentioned a few times).
MediaDrive- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16827136147 Will I need a "non-burning" drive as well(not a huge issue since they are under 20 bucks,but currious.) Also will I need a floppy drive?(I think I've read a few places you need a floppy to install an OS)
Power supply-If the one that come with the case isn't good enough,please inform me.
Fan- Open to suggestions here if I need more.
Mobo- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813127034 I'm unsure exactly what to look for in a motherboard,all I know is the higher the FSB the better. Looking for best under $100(preferably around $75 if there isn't much difference)
Now for the two main pricey items that I really need the advice on:
Processor- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819115052 Not sure what is the best thing to go after but it seemed this one was best for the price.
Video Card-http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130332 Same as above.
