I am looking to do a very similar thing as the OP here, and build my own computer in a few months. While obviously the hardware I choose will be different and we can't pin anything down specifically...
Does anyone have any links to online walkthroughs that show step by step how I would build my own PC? I'd love some links to some good ones. I've got one a friend recommended and I googled a couple.
I think I can handle the hardware installation with what I've read and what not. But where can I go or who can I talk to to make sure that when I choose a MoBo, CPU, Etc... that they are all fully compatible.
Edit: on Newegg.com, under MoBo specifications it says
CPU Socket Type: AM3/AM2+/AM2
CPU Type: Phenom II / Athlon X4 / Athlon X3 / Athlon X2 / Phenom X4 / Phenom X3 / Athlon / Sempron
FSB: 2600MHz Hyper Transport (5200 MT/s)
Does this mean these are the ONLY cpu's compatible? and If I bought this MoBo I'd have to get one of thos types of CPU's? and is newegg the best place to look or is there somewhere else?
