    Post the board out side of the case on the box to make sure the board is good...

    buy good quility products, this dosnt mean you have to spend alot, it just means dont buy CRAP, by crap i mean stuff thats eather bottem rung or using VIA chipsets(only time via chipsets are good is with VIA cpu's)

    lke ktr said post the board outside a case first, saves alot of headakes if the boards DOA, also helps u know if SOMEHOW the boards shorting on the case(happens more then anybody here would like to think about/admit.

    if you need parts advice ASK HERE, dont just read some reviews and trust your friends.

    a person in another thred asked for some help because he was getting bad perf out of a new system a while back, when he listed the parts his buddy had him get it was really miss matched stuff, easly avoided if he had asked here first :) (he could have made a system 2x as fast for less $)
