First time builder - $500-$600 budget - Page 6

post #51 of 56
Gigabyte motherboards usually come with 2 SATA cables. As far as I know that's about it as for cables; the PSU should also have enough.

This is my setup. I put it all together, or actually just finishing up drivers installs, but was wondering...
I know this is a stupid question, but do I need another card for internet access? How do I connect to internet?

Plug an ethernet cable into the back of the mobo
Or if you require wi-fi then yes you will either need a PCI/PCI-E wi-fi card or USB wi-fi adapter.
Grats on a great build

Thanks for all your help. This has been a ton easier with you help and setups. Putting all the pieces together was nerve-racking but easy. I would like to have a wireless card. Recommend any good ones?

This

gets very decent reviews on Newegg. For $17 it's not that bad - supports wi-fi N, has a proper antenna unlike a lot of the other USB adapters, and apaprently gets very good range. Just keep it plugged into the USB port on the back of your mobo.

Or if you prefer an internal card, here is a decent cheap one, but doesn't cost as little.

If you need any cheaper ones, let me know. I actually specifically prefer Trendnet (for wi-fi adapters, not routers) and D-Link (for everything) for networking equipment brands, but at the moment the wi-fi adapters they have are more expensive in the US compared to Canada.
