You are OK to go with the parts list in Post #29.Posted Image

Hahaha yeah this is perfect!!! Thanks guys sorry if I have been a pain in the neck, my first time and I wanted to do it right.

Not a problem, if you come across anything you are not sure or we have not made things clear, please post.

Again thank you


Your welcome.


A couple of items to add to your list. Static electricity that builds up in your body if discharged to sensitive electrical components can totally dis distroy them. So to prevent this when handling parts or working on the computer you must take anti static measures by touching a bare part of the computer case OR (the much better solution) wear an anti static wrist strap like this, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16899261005 Follow nth instruction for it's use.

Also get an internal system speaker like this, (not essential, but well worth having in a build) > http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html. You can recycle one from an old PC or your local computer shop may have them in stock. When the computer performs the POST at Boot up and a problem is found, you will hear some beeps which will indicate the most likely cause and where to start looking to fix it.

Downland your Motherboard user manual from the Asus site. It is a very sophisticated board with many features, so will take a bit of learning to get the best from it, especially the thermal management.

Please read this DIY Tutorial, thanks to troy and Artellos, > http://www.geekstogo...r-own-computer/
