How do I install Window 8 after assembling the PC?

I just finished assembling all my PC components. Everything worked out, got into BIOS (click). How do I install window 8 now?
I have a Window 8 DVD, so do i plug it in the optical drive? + setting it at my first boot drive?

    You need a legal copy of windows 8 dvd and the COA sticker key code to enter during installation. You must have an optical drive to get it installed.
    You need to get into the bios and set the boot sequence to optical drive first. Put the disc in drive after setting boot sequence in bios, save and reboot from bios then it will prompt you to boot from dvd or it will automatically (mine does). Then you're off to installing windows 8

    After I install window 8, do I get into BISO and set my bootdrive back to my "SSD"?
    I have a 120GB samsung SSD, how should I partition ? How much storage for C drive and D drive?
    I'll get a HDD later on so.
  3. Do you have the manual for the motherboard? Most Bios' you have to press the "DEL" key on the keyboard but lately it has been F12 or F2 key.

    If you have a 120GB SSD, I'd advise getting another hard drive as secondary (d), and putting the page file onto the D drive (get yourself like a 2TB WD Black HDD), just install programs onto the SSD.

    I don't really think you need to partition the ssd.
