  1. im back after a long trip and planning on building a new computer. i have purchased all the parts already and since this is my first time building a PC i was wondering if there is anything that i should look out for?

    i got the new cosmos 1100 tower

    ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi mobo
    AMD Phenom 9600 cpu
    CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2x1GB) 240 pin DDR2-1066 RAM
    SEAGATE Barracuda 7200RPM HDD
    HIS Radeon HD 3870 512MB 256Bit GDDR4 PCIE2.0 x16 GPU (two of those)
    XION Supernova 800W PSU

    and a CPU coller, GPU H2O cooler, thermal paste. i have a DVD/CD rom laying around somewhere in the apartment.

    all in all it came out to about 1500$

    any advise, comment, criticism are wellcome

    Static electricity. Touch an unpainted part of your computer's case before you begin and don't stand on a carpet.

    Please keep us updated with how you get on, I have the same MOBO, and the CPU below yours. I'm currently having a few issues getting going if you have read my post
