Step 1: Get Your Stuff
Another great site for cheap parts, courtesy of mas-retals:
--->Make sure your motherboard is compatible with the processor you choose! (Socket AM2, etc.)
~CD / DVD Drives / Burners
--Make sure that your motherboard supports your drives' data interfaces (Serial ATA< Parallel ATA, or any other type, same with PCI and AGP devices)
Once you get your parts, make sure you also have:
~ Phillip's or flat head screw driver (The size of the screws on the outside of the case)
--This depends on the type of screws in your computer case
~Small head Phillip's/Flat head screw drivers
--For mounting the motherboard/hard drive/DVD rom/CD rom/Floppy drive
--May be unnecessary, but always be careful when handling delicate computer components, such as the processor.
