Checklist before assembling new PC - Did I missing anything?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
It's been a while since my last PC build...I do a full upgrade every 4-5 Years. The only thing I decided to keep was my case - Antec 1200. I'll keep this short - let me know if I missed anything.

  • Write down all programs/software you use on your current PC.
  • Format/Delete all HDs from your PC.
  • Dismantle old PC (Antec 1200)
  • Clean dust from Antec 1200
  • Install new hardware into the clean Antec 1200
  • Install Windows 7
  • Follow Sean's SSD Installation Guide
  • Install all programs/software that were noted in Step 1
  • Sell old hardware (probably just the Q6600 and 8800GT). Do you think anything else from 4-5 years ago would sell on ebay? old RAM?

Let me know if I am missing anything. Thanks.

See my rig signature for the new build!

Looks good, make sure you read seans guide before you go through the install though smile.gif.

Good things about SSDs is OS installation takes about 20 minutes with a USB drive installation smile.gif.
