Windows 7: New build need advice

I was looking for a new set of SATA cables in the next town over where I take my dad for his treatments. I had plenty of time to kill and figured MAYBE one would have what I needed. 4 "computer" shops, 2 didn't carry any PC hardware whatsoever and the other 2 don't keep cables in stock. Now I know it has become competitive with online stores, but the way to get business back and generate new business is NOT refusing to stock common parts. I refused to even attempt to try Best Buy. I decided to just order some.

I'm glad that it worked out for you. It's just frustrating to have to wait for that last niggling detail because you couldn't find a lousy cable or two locally (I live in a megopolis and frequently run into that problem).
I probably could across the river and went into Omaha Nebraska to get a couple but I hate traffic and they got the College World Series going on so it's nuts going over there, according to UPS's website I will have them 2 cables by tomorrow evening I'm in no hurry.

We finished it off for the weekend except for the lightscribe DVD burner The one I have is a IDE and I tried an adapter to SATA and no matter how I tried to hook it up it wouldn't work, so I ordered a SATA lightscribe DVD burner will put it in next weekend.

Speedfan was given me the wrong temperatures for the CPU, the bios and Speccy has it about 30°C

Here are some pictures nothing fancy but it works for us.

Was about to ask about CPU cooler. It's definitely a must!
