1. Is it worth buying a SATA hard drive? If so how do you set one up? Do you have to buy different CD/DVD drives than other hard drives?
2. Can anybody recommend a good video card for me? I'm planning on spending only $100 or so on this part, although after looking around I realise I may have to spend a bit more. I'll be playing some games that will need a good card, but I'm not fussed if the quality's not top notch.
3. What good mobos are there? Could anyone recommend 2 motherboards that will suit AMD or intel processors. I know very little about mobos so any suggestions are useful. If I went for an AMD processor which one would be best for under $360 and are AMD CPUs significantly better than intel CPUs?
Anymore tips for my first build would be great. Thanks for your help!
