I need a little help to make sure I'm not wasting too much money, or if I could save a little bit more without sacrificing any of the power.
Here's what I've got so far, in the order that Newegg listed it in my cart :3
Hard Drive: Samsung by Seagate
Mobo: ASRock 880GM-LE FX AM3+ AMD 880G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Networking: Premiertek PT-H10DN-1W USB 2.0 Speedy2 Wireless LAN Adapter
(My room is where the router is, my crap is in my dads room where my brother can't bother me....sharing a room sucks)
Thermal Paste: Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
(Even though the heatsink should come with some, I read reviews and when somebody says somethings crappy, I believe them XD, and some say this stuff is better than Arctic Silver, plus the fact that it's not conductive so I shouldn't accidentally fry my first build.)
RAM: Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Desktop Memory Model KVR1066D3N7/4G
(I have 2 in the cart...even though they have a product that contains two of these, the one with 2 has a worse rating, and less reviews. I'm a picky boy, and it's straight off the MoBo's QVL, and 5 eggs :3)
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDX955WFK4DGM - OEM
(Because somebody said that the stock heatsink sucked.)
Heatsink: COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Intel Core i7 compatible
(Probably a stupid question, but AMD3+ and AMD3 have the same mounts, and this one should fit, right? Thanks)
SATA Cable: OKGEAR 18" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Right Angle W/Metal Latch, UV Blue
(Because no matter how many times I'm told, I keep forgetting whether or not a motherboard is gonna come with one, let alone the screws I'll need >.>)
I'll be looking for a PSU myself, but if you wanna gimme some suggestions, please and thanks Also some suggestions on cases too, never was sure about them.
The MoBo has integrated graphics, as crappy as they may or may not be (If you can, let me know how crappy, please and thanks :D) so I'm not going to buy a GPU until later, I don't quite game on computers but I like to be able to play something stupid like The Sims. I'm trying to make it a nice cheap build while still being able to watch HD movies and play Bloons Tower Defense :3 so easily amused I am.
Which reminds me, I still gotta find a disk drive, and a media drive, and maybe a sound card, because I don't quite trust integrated sound. My laptops makes noises if there isn't sound playing. Very quiet noises, but still noise. I think my dad's desktop does too.
Any help, advice, suggestions, are very very welcome. If you're bored and feel like making somebody feel stupid, gimme your best shot I'm up for a laugh
I'm gonna check my links to be sure they're all correct.
