First build/E7200 build (Finshed) *pics

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
I am about to start my first build ever. I'm going for a budget gaming rig that will still be a pretty good performer. Most of the parts are coming in Wednesday. Only thing I need to get are, an OS, CPU cooler and more fans. I'd appreciate any kind of help or anything I should know about putting this thing together, I'm still a noob when it comes to this stuff.

Heres the parts list:
Asus P5Q Pro
Intel E7200
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800
EVGA 9800GT
Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600 160GB
Lite-On DVD burner
Vista home premium 64-bit
Cooler Master 690
Antec Earthwatts 500W

The Coolmaster 690 and the Antec Earthwatts I already have and I'm reusing the 9800GT that I also already have. As far as a CPU cooler I'm looking at the Xigmatek 1283 or 963, the Zerotherm 120 and the Tuniq Tower.

get the xigmatek 1283 you wont be disappointed with its performance on the e200. Also make sure to get the retention bracket with it for better seating than the craptastic push pins

It was pretty fun putting it together. Didn't take that long either considering this is my first build. I think I did a pretty decent job at cable management, I'll have some pics up soon when I get home.
