Build Log : First Rig

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey , this is my build log for building my first computer ever. With this computer , i plan on being able to over clock and upgrade to better things as technology gets better. I am quite confertable around computers and hardware. I have never built my own computer before , but that is because of the fact that i haven't ever had enough money to do so. But now , after saving money for a while, i've decided to build a computer. I am reallly excited because its not just building a device that computes 1's and 0's , its more of something that i will be proud of and that i will know that i worked hard and put a lot of effort into getting it. After doing research on this site and creating threads , i have learned so much from the community here. So , shout-out to the oc.net members .
So anyways , lets check out my rig

Good news , Ill be ordering everything tomarrow or the day after. Everything except the PSU , because i dont know which one to get , or to get one at all. Because i already have a 400W Antec. But since im going to want to overclock , i think i might need one. But i want a cheap but good 500-600 W one. Can anyone help?

Thanks for the PSU link , that i will get.
The harddrive's price is kinda a huge jump from 50 bucks .

Is there anything with a lower price?
