An Odyssey Begun….

Well I’ve ordered the “first half” of my new computer. Ordered the following components:

Cooler Master Stacker RC-832
A big roomy full tower case with plenty of room for expansion
ASUS Maximus Formula
Using the X38 North Bridge, PCIe x16 2.0, DDR2. Solid looking board.
Seagate Barracuda 750GB HD (OEM)
Went OEM for the HD. Solid company. Massive Capacity.
Mushkin DDR2 800 2x (2gb)
DDR2 is still cheap as hell, got me four gigs on 2 sticks.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
Intel’s newest chip under the Wolfdale name. Small, cool, fast. Almost went with quad-core but I think I can wait a bit, until more software takes advantage of 4 cores.

I plan on ordering the rest (video card, optical drive, OS, and power supply) in about a week (I get paid next Wednesday). Now I only hope I put this shit together without having anything explode or catch on fire.
