    I'm probably gonna be making my first attempt at building my own rig at the end of the summer and I'm looking for a full parts list and walkthrough guide so I don't leave anything out or fubar something up. I'm going with an AMD powered microatx, anyone have a link to with everything I'd need for a complete buildup?

    while that sounds simple enough I asked for a guide to make sure I don't fry my brand new several hundred dollar chips, boards and cards.:hs:

    Jesus, did you even look at the link? It has nothing to do with hardware at all, it's about what you need for a PC and how to put it all together - exactly what the poster was asking for. It helped me greatly when I was putting together my first homebuilt PC; I checked it several times to make sure that I had everything I needed and was assembling it correctly.

    Perhaps you should actually click a link once in a while rather than commenting based on the domain it's from.

    I have seen the page before. I have some problems with their methods. But more importantly, I do not like to see impressionable users visit TH because they'll probably visit other sections and get screwed up in the head :mamoru:
