    Hi, Does anyone know of any up to date websites for build your
    own computer, I have done some searching but the only sites
    I can find seem to a bit old, Pentium 3 and the like.
    Many thanks

    Well I don't of any off the top of my head. I will say is depending on which style of the Pentium 3 for the most part the rest of the guide would still be valid I think.

    I kind of like dubstar's first choice. But I may be a little biased, since it is my site. Take a look at BYOPC.com and if you have any trouble, I would love to help. I'm just a click away.

    "step 1: click on the shiny red computer.
    step 2: enter your credit card number.
    step 3: click 'waste 3 grand now!' button"

    Thanks to all those who replied, I actually went for "Dubstars"
    first choice as it seemed to be what I wanted, I did email the
    writer of his pages but so far he has not replied.
    Many thanks.

    yeah, basically, just put everything where it fits, more importantly, don't put things where they don't fit... add OS, done.

    There's acctually some PSU:s with a 3-pin connector similar to those on fans. That should NOT be put where it fits (on the mobo). So a manual is a good idea regardless. :)

    mine has the 3-pin connector and it's to monitor the temperature-controlled fan speed in the ps. so mine does connect to the motherboard.

    Oh that's what it's for! Does it have three leads or just one? The ones I've seen had three (thus the "nooo, don't do that" feeling).

    it just has the one 'sensor' lead. if it had three, i'd raise my eyebrow, too.

    with it unplugged, are all fans in the ps spinning? what does the manual or manufacturer's site say about that connector?
