My New System *Boring*

By Eyreel
Mar 7, 2005
  1. My (first home-built) system's in the post:

    Case: Chieftec Dragon with 300w psu
    Mobo: Asus P4P800E-Deluxe (800FSB)
    CPU: P4 3.0EGhz (Prescott Core) (800FSB) (1mb Cache) Retail
    Ram: 2x Twinmos 512mb PC3200 sticks
    Graphics: AGP8x Nvidia GeForce 6600GT
    OS: Win Xp Home

    Im worrying about static, is there anything i can do without having to buy anything? apart from touching the inside of the case frequently?
    Also worrying about starting up for the first time, i can fit the hardware but i dont know about formatting drives/bios....any help/advice/tips is very welcome and much appreciated.

    just make sure you are grounded and you should by ok. I'm not sure what you wanted to know about the last question but all you have to do is start up make sure the bios settings are corret and install windows. It's quit easy I think. :bounce:

    I ground my self by touching the ground wire on an outlet or I just touch the schrew on the outlet. :bounce:
