    This was on my P&S I believe, if I re-did it using my DSLR they will be even better! :)

    That computer was built back in '07, chances are, the prices changed. He even has links for his components. Some are deactivated already, though.

    As he said, I built it back in '07 so I don't remember what the prices were, I'll try and fix the links to see if there are any related items still for sale, but honestly there are better things out there for the money.

    Great guide! The only question I had was in regards to the thermal paste. Im going to use the stock heatsink that came with my processor, but I noticed there is already thermal paste applied underneath it.

    I had bought arctic silver 5 to use. Should I just not apply it and install the heatsink? If I do use it should clean off the thermal paste?
