Hi guys check out my build.
i have a couple of things i need help with... 1. Do i need thermal paste? 2. the case i have picked doesn't have space for a DVD drive so how on earth do i install an operating system?? 3. Is all this compatible and will it all fit in the case? 4. Ive never built one before, and wouldn't say I'm hugely confident even after watching a few 'how to' vids... how likely am i to royally fudge this up?? 5. ive gone a bit over my budget, what would you do to make this build cheaper without compromising too much on potential power?
also i may add, a friend suggested i get the i7 as i can overclock it and get a good bit more bang for my buck, hence the Cooling unit, do i need it? if i downgraded my CPU to an i5 could i forget about the cooling unit and same some gold??
