Hi, this is my first time building a computer, and I am ordering all of my parts through newegg.com.

I'm sure you guys probably see this all the time and probably get annoyed by it, but I'm looking for help and advice from experienced people who know what they're talking about.

If you guys could just help me out, and tell me if any of these parts might conflict with each other, or not work properly together, I would really appreciate it.

Again, I apologize in advance if this is annoying or repetitive, but I would really appreciate any help or advice I can get.

Thanks, Arron

Ok, thank you very much for that website by the way, its really helpful.

I've updated a few of the parts, and that site says they are all compatible, here are the ones I changed;

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145345

Also, do I need an optical drive to install an OS, or is there any other way I could possibly install a OS through? I am able to download Windows 7 64 bit through an educational website that I have a membership to, and I would like to be able to do it through that, any thoughts?

Alright, but how can I use the download from that site to install Windows 7 on this computer once it is built?

It is a legal download, and what if I downloaded the OS on my laptop and saved it to a flashdrive, would that work, or no?
