I have recently started to build a Pc I have allready got the case,HDD,FDD,DVD-RW drive,Graphics card(AGP),Sound Card and a pair of speakers.
What I want to know is would the motherboard would fit into the case, the case is an ATX with 300w PSU. Would the motherboard ports for where you plug the things in eg: Mouse+Keyboard would line up correctly with the plate the case has. I know i havent listed it as what I all ready have because I am not going to buy things which are not of use to the computer and can't fit in.
Also I would like to know how do I go around installing an AMD Duron processor to the motherboard that supports AMD SktA as I have never attempted to do this.
Installing the OS onto the HDD using the Windows XP Pro Cd would work,would it? would this also format the drive and mark it as active and bootable? if not please tell me.
