I also was wondering if anybody had some reccomendations on speakers for my TV. The internal speakers don't do anything I watch any justice... at all.... I'd perfer something with decent bass. Thanks!

I built with that cpu and if you are not over clocking which you shouldnt for basic browsing. Then the factory compound will be good! Everything else looks good! My build for my mom was fairly close to yours

Thanks. I might overclock it to 3.5 or something just for the experience of overclocking (This is my first PC and Im having a good time!) I ordered the parts last night and everything that I got from the website Mwave came today! I was really impressed how fast it was

I actually haven't even tried to overclock it yet. It is fast enough in my eyes for now. I'm going to wait until it needs it to overclock it!

Yeah. I'll probably wait until I get used to it. Then overclock so I actually know if it made a difference.

The motherboard is kinda bad and you forgot a GPU. Also, a case fan, and some thermal compound for your CPU. but don't take it if you like fried CPU ._.

Quick question. Did you read the description? (GPU answer) Also have you ever built a PC?
