Whoops! I just typed in a whole page full then it got erased. :( These are more simple. 1. Put the motherboard port cover into the case before you put in the motherboard. 2. Make sure you put the RAM into an actual slot. It is recommended to put the RAM sticks in the slots that the motherboard manual tells you to. It usually improves startup performance. 3. Open the lock on a PCI Express port before you insert any accessory/video card. I sadly ruined one of my PCI ports by ripping a video card out. The video card survived though. 4. This applies to fully modular PSUs: Do not mix up the PERIF port with the SATA port on the back. 5. Do not mix up the ports for the case connecting to the motherboard. I blew my included speaker for the motherboard doing this. There is also usually a pinout with directions for it somewhere nearby on the motherboard, or consult the motherboard manual. 6. Do not buy any thermal paste if you are buying a CPU with an included cooler. The fan included usually has thermal paste pre-applied to the heatsink. 7. Do not buy any useless accessories (ex// Gaming Mouse 2000, Expensive Keyboard 200) This also applies if you are buying fan controllers. It is not necessary as it looks. 8. Make sure you have a hard drive with an install CD/DVD or even a USB if you'd like. 9. Do not pull out cables from SATA devices. (They WILL be destroyed.) 10. Make sure to buy a wireless card if your motherboard doesn't include built-in WiFi. 11. Follow-up: Do not buy Sound Cards, Hot Swap Devices, Fan Controllers, Random Card Adapters, and other commonly sold accessories. Only buy things like this if needed. 12. If your computer is not starting up, go back to EVERY SINGLE THING YOU DID. Also, a common answer to this is TURN ON THE PSU. Simple! 13. If your case comes with fans, do not buy fans. Save lots of money that way. 14. Make sure to buy a reasonably priced PSU that CAN handle the load, and can handle PLENTY more wattage if needed. PCPARTPICKER will determine the minimum power needed by your future computer. Somewhat go by this: Follow this number, then add 200+W to that number and you will find that wattage that you need. 15. Buy from reliable sources. 16. Get better quality from Intel, but you can get MUCH cheaper products from AMD. I have chosen a Ryzen as it seems like the easiest to choose from the super long line of products. 17. It does not matter if your PC has LED lights or not. You can come by cheap cases like mine and find built-in lights. 18. Think about the inside, not what it looks like. 19. Buy an HDD! It's become super cheap and is very useful. That's it! I may post this into the article about my computer.

Sorry I'm late, installing AMD CPUs are fairly easy compared to Intel one. (It won't fall out, it has pins.)

By the way, I had the SSD on hand in the first place. Thinking of that CPU upgrade soon.

No of course i don't need it.. all of the pins were squashed. Anyways no big deal to MSI and so that wasn't the "steel" PCI-E socket I was using. Anyways, there's always PCI x1 to PCI x16 converters anywhere on Amazon...

It's very EASY because of how the CPU has all of these gold pins sticking out and on the MB there are holes for it... lol its not Intel where there are just gold "spots"

Oh hey guys, me again. When I did not have the case I had to turn it on by shorting the pins (power) on JFP1. It's not recommended but it works.

my relative is a real pc geek he makes a lot of money coding and he told me that i should wait until they have real good gpus in the future so i might have this gtx 460 for a while until i find one of those real good GPU's for a real cheap price in a few months so I could focus on other things.
