I am building my PC and my friend told me I should try to plug a monitor in and see if the BIOS works and to make sure everything is not DOA and compatible. He's not online now, so my question is, what do I need to have plugged in?
What I currently think is:
- Video card
- Power Supply
Is there anything else I need to have? And do I need to install the CPU cooler? How long will it take before my i7-2600K (not overclocked, stock settings) overheats?
Also, I don't need a hard drive for a BIOS test yet, do I?
