I just put my first computer build together today and need to figure out what to do about the OS. I'm gambling on a possibility that I may be able to get windows from my college this fall when it starts up so unit then my buddy that I built it with helped me put unbuntu on it but we didn't have time to set it up. Currently the Ethernet does not work and I'm sure I'll find more I need to fix. Also I want to be able to utilize my mobo features but don't think I can on Linux. Would it be a good idea to install the windows 7 iso and use that during the 30 day grace period? If I do that would it be a good idea(as in what should I do?) to wipe the ssd to install windows (I know I could dual boot some how but I feel like it would be a hassle for a beginner like me)?
Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Spider13/saved/fbFXsY
edit thanks for all the input and advice all my problems have been resolved as of now! And I will be adding two 1tb drives to run raid with once my buddy moves his os off one.
