Windows 7: Building a comp for my boss...

19 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

You need

Power Supply
CPU with Heatsink/Cooler
Hard Drive
Video Card *
Optical Drive (DVD drive)
Speakers (optional)
License for Windows : if you choose to run Windows.

* The video might be integrated into the mobo depending upon which mobo you get. Also, the mobo will almost surely have a Network Interface as well as onboard sound these days.

If you get a retail boxed comes with a heatsink/fan included. If you get an OEM CPU, you likely have to buy this separate.
