Ive decided to go with Newegg.com as I am not satisfied with other vendors.
Well I am buying everything seperate. Ill go ahead and list my complete setup and go from there.
Case:RAIDMAX Elite Black Mid-Tower PC Case with 380W Power Supply, Model "ATX-208BP"
Motherboard:MSI "K8T NEO-FSR" K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU

Heatsink:Thermaltake Venus 7+ Highest Performance Cooler for AMD Opteron & Athlon 64 (With RF and Back Plate
First this is what I got so far, my brother in law who had built pc's in the past is gonna help me with this one, as it is my first build.
Under packaging for the processor it says this
ackaging: OEM(Processor Only
so i assume that means I need to provide my own heatsink, again dont laugh cause im new at this.
is the heat sink liste above a ok choice? and do i need to get the gel or whatever to apply it?
again if you see any conflicts with my current setup please let me know it is greatly appreciated.
I will not be building this on my own, I ll will be simply watching my borther in law do it and learn.
