1. Install Dr.Racket and make sure it runs. When you run DrRacket, you should see a text editor with a split screen. If you just run 'racket' you will get a black window, make sure you run DrRacket)

2. Go to www.pcpartpicker.com and make a computer out of a $600 budget. You are just building the tower (including case) you do not include keyboard/mouse/monitor or anything outside of the case. You will submit the following on the homework server:
    -A plain text file that contains a link to your pcpartpicker build (you have to save the build to link it) and also a description of what you would use the computer for / and why you chose the parts you chose. 
    -If you submit a file that is not PLAIN TEXT I will not count it then you have to resubmit it (late). Make sure you can open it in a plain text editor. (like notepad, textedit, gedit etc)
    -Deadline for electronic submission is 11:59pm Sunday September 15th. Do not wait until Sunday at 11 to try to submit it. Give yourself enough time to get it done properly and submit it.

3. You will have a quiz on computer components early next week. You should know the required components of the tower itself.
