My new Computer costum built by Mr.Shin himself.
How'd I do on my first computer?
It only cost me 350 to build!

=D

Now all my friends want me to build one.
I was going for a Media Tower and in the long run I want to put Windows 7 64 bit on it when its released so I can utilize more ram.
But on a professional level like everyone else's.
for my very first computer I built myself with only a week worth's of studying How'd I do? 1-10?

And also does anyone know any programs that I could install on my other computers to make a forced shared network.

Example.
"I install it here and then I install it there and instant shared network thru that one program onto both computers."

Thanks Again.

You've used Everest to make a system report?
Everest doesn't recognise hardware made in the last four years or so and ultimately your report doesn't tell anybody anything :)
Copy some details from your paperwork or link to the bits on the website(s) you bought the parts from.

Do remember Windows 7 is still Beta, won't be out until next year at the very least and the entire hardware landscape will have changed again so building something around an operating system that, if Vista was anything to go by, is at least 18 months away seems pointless. It'll be happy with XP in the meantime though and you can always upgrade later.

HI Thewhiterose,

I see you got things built and running. Just wanted to offer a little program that will help key components like Motherboard, cpu, ram
You can download it from my signature below. It's called CPUz. Save it to your desktop and just click on it. Post the info in the cpu, mainboard, memory areas.
Congratulations for your first build.

PSU I would replace. With todays hardware and graphic intensive games and for future updates. I would suggest you go to at least a 650 or money allowing a 750. This will guarantee enough power for any future upgrades. I hope this helps. Again congratulations

Whats your budget going to be? That will help in PSU decision. The more sata connections you want the more it will cost.
Video card will depend on what you want to use the system for.


Here is an example of 8 sata connectors on a 700 Watt PSU

Its mainly going to be used for a media tower, mid / high end gaming.
And also Movie Theater center.

=3

But I need additional hard drives in the long run so Im going to need a different power supply.
this tower supports about 3-4 more hard drives so im looking for a tower that can support more if I need it at a later date.

Ok have you thought about a Full Tower case?

Also the mb will dictate how many drives also
Most Sata drives on a mb is normally 6 to 8 on higher end mb's. Go Here to see examples of some of the full tower cases available. They can get expensive depending on your preference, as high as 650.00 dollars

My board for sata ports can support 6, and has a Legacy port for older things.
So it can go both ways most likely more then 8 but I think I'd probley only use 6 total so im not worried.

Whats the Recommendation for that for a PSU.

WAT wise?

The link in post 7 will be enough PSU for your needs and more. Being you are using it for gaming and theater I would not recommend anything less then the 700 watt. the reason for this is because the new SLI format video cards will need a power connector for them also

not bad but it's close to the bottom

Take a look Here
at 1 gig cards. This will be more then enough for what you want to do. They are a little pricey so if you want something alittle less then go Here and look at the 512 cards. It's all a personal preference and how much you can afford.

You realize that this PSU is a refurbished item? It's either been used and returned, or it was returned for having a problem and repaired
