If this isn't the proper department I apologize. Please alert me and I'll delete this thread and repost elsewhere.
Otherwise, ultimately, I'm tired of dealing with technical issues with my machine. I think it's time for me to learn how to build my own. No overclocking, no watercooling, just a nice healthy machine that will last 2-3 years. Although I'm new to machines I'm not dumb, did some research and learned about ATX boards and proper sockets.
Here is my Newegg setup

(Already purchased)2xHDDs running in RAID 0
What I'm worried about:1
. How do I know if the HDD fans
. Will my power supply
be sufficient? I was trying to keep below
since this is my first build.3
. I use a lot of big files (500mb+) for editing and I do quite a bit of gaming, what stripe size is fastest
. Am I missing anything vital?
From my understanding it's as simple as putting everything together.. follow the motherboard quick installation, install Windows, install the RAID drivers, set the striping size, have fun.
Thank you for all comments/flames!
