  1. OK. I'm convinced about the power supply. I'm bummed about it, but on the bright side the OCZ you're reccommending is cheaper then the one we bought. So I can just tell my dad it's cheaper and he won't mind as much. Hopefully.
  2. I wish I'd known this before I ordered it. Also, would 520w be enough? I saw the motherboard requires at least a 480w so giving myself 40w of headroom doesn't seem like much. Or does the 480w figure take into account extra devices such as cards and drives? Also, what exactly might happen with it? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817153021 <<< That's the exact item if that helps.
  3. Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I already ordered the TT power supply, and I've put my dad through a lot (it's kind of his money - Christmas gift) as it is. If I was dealing with my own money I'd be a little more picky and just go for it, but if it's possible I'd rather not put my dad through it. How paramount would you say the problem is? Oh, and also, I'm General Septem - he's Steelballzz.
  4. I see, so I'm OK with what I've got then. I'm not planning to OC anytime in the near future, and it'd be a real pain to get AS5 since I don't drive or have a credit card (unless they sell it at RadioShack wich I highly doubt), so I think for now I'll use what they supplied for the time being. Thanks.
  5. My Athlon 64 says the heat sink it comes with already has thermal interface on it. Do I still need the AS5?
  6. Thanks a lot =D I'll check that link, and if I run into any problems I'll let you guys know. My board isn't actually here yet but I just wanted to be sure about what I was doing before I go and mess up a lot of money's worth of parts.
  7. Hello everyone. I recently undertook a major rebuild for my PC. Over the years I've already replaced various drives and such. So, with the help of someone I know, I chose a new mobo, processor, RAM, and video card. I chose the Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR because my friend was drooling over it. And I can't say I blame him - except for one thing. I'm not exactly a "computer enthusiast", nor an overclocker. I'm simply someone who values quality and getting my money's worth. And did I ever - for under a thousand my new PC will far outperform any comparably priced pre-built. My experience with building is moderate - I've never really built a system but I know pretty well about how one is - at least physically - built. But recently I've been reading how complicated the instalation of this board can be. As I said, I'm not an overclocker yet. It's nice to have that ability, and in the future I may choose to take advantage of this motherboard's overclocking features, but for the time being I'm playing it safe. So my question is, if you were to put yourself in my shoes, how would you go about building your PC with the hardware I have? What BIOS settings would you change? Or is it pretty straightforward - nothing I should have to worry about? Thanks a lot for your time.
