  1. Hey, I've decided on building my first new computer. I would appreciate any tips as this is hard being a newbie :p .

    What I got...

    Mobo: ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX = $219
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131142

    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz = $338

    Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce 7950GT 512MB PCI-E = $388
    http://www.hothardware.com/Articles/Gigabyte_GeForce_7950_GT/Default.aspx

    RAM: http://pconlineshop.co.nz/pcshop/product_info.php?cPath=77_78&products_id=24587&RBTid=4e483dc238ae43941c24403837cd6e90 x2 = $160

    HDD: Seagate 320GB SATA 7200RPM 16MB = $122

    or

    Sony 18X AWG170AB2 DVDRW Black Drive = $70
    http://pconlineshop.co.nz/pcshop/product_info.php?cPath=85_91&products_id=25921&RBTid=4e483dc238ae43941c24403837cd6e90

    Sony MPF920 3.5 Floppy Drive Beige/Silver/Black = $15
    http://www.nzoczone.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=1897

    And OS will be be XP Professional I think.

    Most of them will be bought else where here in New Zealand. Just found sites with most info. All that comes to about (not including OS) $1620 NZD which is about $1190 USD. Parts here are generally more expensive.

    Also, what would I need in the way of cooling.

    So, what would this be like, and anyone have any suggestions or tips. Thanks.
