  1. So I recently built and assembled my first desktop

    Asus M4A88TD-V EVO USB3 Motherboard

    AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Quad Core Processor

    Corsair 4GB DDR3 RAM x4

    Video Card
    EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

    Hard Drive
    Seagate Barracuda 1TB

    DVD Burner
    ASUS DRW-24B1ST DVD Burner

    Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Mid Tower Case

    Power Supply
    Cooler Master GX Series 650W

    Once the DVD burner arrives from UPS today, I'll be able to download Windows 7 and all the other stuff I need on there.

    My question is, is there anything else I should be buying for my computer to 100% work? I already have the mouse, keyboard, monitor, and I'm not worrying about speakers atm. I know I still need a wireless adapter, but do I need anything else??

    Also, with the wireless adapter I'm not really sure what to look for. Should I be getting a -G or -N adapter? PCI or PCI express? Other than the adapter, do I need anything else to get internet for my computer (we already have a router)?
