well you can be as meticulous as you want, and research every component for your pc, like linux compatibility, stability, compabitility with other components.... this can drivey ou mad sometimes, and even delay your purchases for weeks or months...

or you can just buy everything on a whim, by getting the most common hardware components, like plain ATA, single processor... etc...

look on pricewatch.com for the pricerange you would expect for each component... i tend to buy most of my stuff from the same site, that carries a large array of components and at a low price... so i can easily track my orders.

dual processor, raid, and motherboard selection i would suggest researching the most before buying, read reviews about each component and select the best for your needs...

do you want to case mod? do you want a mid, mini, large case? think about these things too, try to keep everything under some price range or total budget... so you dont go overboard and spend 3 grand on stuff...

anyway... i gotta hit the can... more stuff later
