Quick question do we need to include a copy of windows in this build?

Forum Topic "Critique build"

So a couple changes and ive got two lists to work with.

micro center: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/crazboy84/saved/2Iue

frys: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/crazboy84/saved/2IvF

So ive built two lists, one for micro center one for frys. I went to frys to see what they had in stock id prefer frys because its closer and theyre customer service is better but im considering just going to both and getting parts from each.

Im not sure if microcenter will pricematch they said management may pricematch on some items but maybe not all. So i think ill go to microcenter with my list and see what they will and wont do and then go to frys

Wife complained about the price so i had to make some changes some like you guys said were easy like the PSU i changed to 600 watts. Also changed to the 6300 since its a nice price break with not much of a change.

I realized that without an optical drive I cant install windows so i had to add a cheap optical drive might take it back to the store after install lol.

So what do yall think of the updated lists?

Ok heres what i have put together so far need some help. Planning on spending 300 on 11/5 and 300 on 11/20 so buying the video card last as my current video card will work fine for a couple weeks

Im buying everything at local stores to not have to deal with shipping most at microcenter also have a tiger direct and a frys available, god its nice living in Dallas!

First, i cant decide on my graphics card, ive got about 300 bucks left to work with, whats the best card i can get for my buck?

Second, power supply, my current power supply is only 250 watts, with a nice graphics card itll prolly push it over so i think i need a new one but dont know alot about picking out power supplys, any good cheap ones you would suggest?

Third. I have some pretty old dvd drives and im not sure if they will work there discontinued, would these work with this build?

Fourth, CPU cooler, can i get away with just the stock heatsink? I dont plan on overclocking so im hoping to cut corners there if you guys think it would work out fine.

Thank you for any and all help it is greatly appreciated!!!!
