    You in the US, UK, or ?

    I like to buy from Newegg or Tigerdirect as one or the other with have the best price. Are you looking at a budget to keep within? You like Intel or AMD better.

    Just a few questions to help us help you.

    Will you be overclocking? Intel has a much better price/performance ratio counting overclocking, otherwise AMD is the way to go. At least that's the way it was last time I checked. For power supplies, you want something with active PFC (it'll list it in Newegg), and for wattage you can use an online calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp. An A+ certification book is a huge help in general computer education, and one can be had for $40 new. You might be able to pick one up at the library, but I haven't checked. You want the sixth edition. Hope that this helps.
