  1. For anyone who's put together several PCs on their own:

    Besides the core components (listed below), what other smaller parts (cables, screws, anything) do I need to put this thing together? Assume I buy everything through Newegg and they each come with all the pre-packaged stuff you'd expect.

    • X-Discovery Mid-Tower Case
    • Seasonic 550W PSU
    • Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.4GHz 1066FSB 8MB L2 Cache 64-bit
    • Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
    • INTEL LGA775 CERTIFIED CPU FAN & HEATSINK (Any suggestions?)
    • Intel D975XBX2 I975X mobo
    • 4GB PC6400 DDR2/800 Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Memory w/ Heat Spreader
    • ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E x16 256MB VIDEO CARD (x1950 is most compatible with my NLE software)
    • 74GB WD740ADFD 10,000RPM SATA150 16MB Cache
    • 500GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM Hard Drive
    • (2x) NEC 7170A 18X DVD+-RW
    • Creative Labs X-FI XtremeGamer 24-BIT
    • ViewSonic VA1912WB WideScreen 19" Color TFT Active Matrix SXGA LCD Monitor
    • OPTI-UPS ES1000C 1000VA/700W
    • All the entrails (mouse, keyboard, speakers, etc)

    Thanks! :D

    I don't plan on overclocking at all. That just sounds like an accident waiting to happen. :D
