Out of the Blue

Tomorrow is the tenth birthday(!!!) of the game that brought terms like "deathmatch," "gib," and "suck it down" into our vernacular. I definitely need to round up some of my mutant buddies to make sure we have some updated version of DOOM installed to celebrate the occasion. Last one with a telefrag is a rotten egg!

21. Building a new computer Dec 9, 2003, 14:59 All4naught
 
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to any good resources if I am wanting to build my first computer from the bottom up. I have checked out a few magazines with some tips, Toms Hardware and a couple of books, but what else should I have as a reference before I do this? I am looking at a AMD 3200 (Barton core) and the Asus Nforce2 Ultra motherboard (I forget the model #). The rest of the specs I am still researching.
So, how hard is this to do? I basically want to do it to learn from th ebottom up...but I worry about compatability issues between the components. Anyone have any tips?

Thanks-

All4naught

\off topic, but relevant to actually having a good enough system to play Doom 3!!!
