PC built, bonus question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've got all my parts for my new Sandy Bridge system, but i'm just beeing carefully and don't want to do anything wrong.

Mainboard S-1155 ASUS P8P67 Pro, ATX
Prozessor INTEL Core i5 - 2500K, 3,30GHz, LGA1155, Quad-Core, Boxed
PSU ATX 650 Watt, CORSAIR 650TX, 80Plus
GFX CARD ATI HD4850 512mb&256bit - for now, keeping it from old PC
G.Skill DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit (F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM, Ripjaws-Serie) CL7 8-7-24
DVD-+R/-+RW SATA LG GH-22NS50, bulk,
HDD SATA II Samsung SpinPoint F4, 320 GB, 16MB Cache - from old PC
Miditower XIGMATEK Midgard
Mugen 2 CPU Cooler

So i want to know if there are anythings i need to be carefully about, so basically i just get all the things built need, not forget about the PSU connectors etc, and i was wondering which things i need to use to build in my Mugen 2 CPU Cooler on the Motherboard? http://www.cyberport.de/mall/1/pic/b...18-138_400.JPG, do i use this 1?

And i gonna clear out my HDD and install Windows 7 in it, i need the 64bit version right? And do i need to flash the bios or i just leave it like that and just install Windows?

Thanks

Everyone on here has forgot a PSU connection at some point in a build. Heck I just did it the other day on both my HDD's LOL Just take it slow and read the manuals. If you think you are going to add more memory later on, then yes you will need 64 bit. Right now you don't "need" it with 4 gb but windows is only going to use like 3.25 or 3.5GB of the 4GB. If it were me then yes I would just install 64 bit anyways.
