Hey guys. Don;t know if many of you know but im building my computer next year and im starting to buy the parts cheap now, and put it together when I have all the parts. I need a bit of help, not about putting it together, but EVERYTHING that I will need. Ill give you an example... *Motherboard *Keyboard *Mouse *RAM *Graphics card etc etc etc. You get my drift. I just need every single component that I need to buy in order to build my PC, and i mean EVERYTHING that is involved. Any help would be great :nodding:

um.. i would EXTREMELY sudgest that you save your money and buy the parts when you have enough money becuase if you buy some now it might be cheaper in 2-3 months

Jeez. Where to start. Heres my list, there are bound to be a few bits missed out though...

Case Power Supply (try to get 60W+) Motherboard (The latest from Gigabit Technology is superb) CPU (I would go for an AMD 64bit) RAM (DDR2 is the way to go, maybe 500-1000Mb of it) Hard Disk Drive (Go for a serial cable - Serial ATA) PCI Modem if you are still on a phone line connection Graphics card Sound Card A few fans (you can get small ones that plug in at ports around the motherboard) CD/DVD Drive(s) Floppy Disk Drive for those boot disks Mouse Keyboard Monitor (I would recommed a high-end flat screen if you have an unlimited budget) Speakers (2.1, 5.1, 7.1..... upto you) Printer if wanted/needed Scanner if wanted/needed Network Card for LAN if wanted Operating System (Windows XP Professional's my recommendation) At least 3 days off work/school Patience A big bit of metal and a hammer you can pound when stressed.
