A guide to setting up your Raspberry Pi
Essential (for general use)SD Card Display & connectivity cable Any HDMI/DVI monitor and any TV should work as a display for the Pi. For best results, use one with HDMI input, but other connections are available for older devices. Keyboard and mouse Any standard USB keyboard and mouse will work with your Raspberry Pi. Wireless keyboards and mice will work if already paired. Power supply The Pi is powered by a USB Micro power supply (like most standard mobile phone chargers). You'll need a good-quality power supply that can supply at least 700mA at 5V. Low current (~700mA) power supplies will work for basic usage, but are likely to cause the Pi to reboot if it draws too much power.
OptionalEthernet (network) cable [Model B/B+ only] An Ethernet cable is used to connect your Pi to a local network and the internet. USB wireless dongle Alternatively, you can connect to a wireless network using a USB wireless dongle, which will require configuration. Audio lead Audio can be played through speakers or headphones using a standard 3.5mm jack. Without an HDMI cable, an audio lead is necessary to produce sound. No separate audio lead is necessary if you're using an HDMI cable to connect to a monitor with speakers, as audio can be played directly through the display; but it is possible to connect one if you prefer to have the audio played through other speakers - this requires configuration.
