Someone hit my car in a parking lot and I just paid for that, ha. I'm guessing over the next 4 months or so I'll be buying this in bits and pieces, starting probably with the mobo/processor and graphics card as they seem to be the heavy hitters. I just needed a grocery list to start so I can watch for sales/etc.
I'm definitely glad I went with buying a new case... I honestly don't think the one I have would be able to cool well enough for what I plan on using this for. Plus I think for my first build starting from scratch would be easier, though since this desktop is just getting tossed I might spend a day dissecting it ha.
Thanks for the help again guys, if down the road I have any questions/concerns I'll poke this thread. I wish I had the money now I'm excited to build my first system ;o;
