Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB 2X1GB PC6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit

ATI X1900XT 512MB

Intel E6600

any cables I will need?

Picked up some Arctic Silver 5 HIGH-DENSITY Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound to put on my processor.

Anyone know where I can find a good tuturial possibly with pictures for Intel setups? Found a AMD http://sysbuild.corsairmemory.com/r...aspx?id=2&sid=1
so its probally close to the same besides processors install.

Hopefully I dont crack and light this baby on fire haha.

Any tips on the rig would be awesome before I make a mess ;-)

www.pcmech.com the parts they tell you to use are out of date but the tutorial itself still works and is very helpful
