Ok, so i have spent the morning going over parts and stuff for building a new computer system that i could maybe pick up over the summer if i am extremely lucky. As far as i can tell all is compatible with each other and by using an online power supply calculator to determine power requirements i think i am well covered. I have calculated a potential cost for it at “bare bones” which is one processor and one stick of ram, then also did the price as a quad core machine with 8gb of ram.
So i guess i am looking for Curt, Joe, and anyone else that has an opinion or thoughts to look it over and double check it. Make sure i did not goof somewhere and pick non compatible parts, or pick shitty components and what not. I got the prices mostly from a decent local store that i have used in the past (Not MicroBytes!). If you think i can get better prices elsewhere (even online) that would be fantastic. So let me know what you think! Thanks!
