There is no one 'procedure' for assemblying a new computer. Use your common sense and read the manuals when in question. You can start by carefully installing your processor and HSF on your MB. Your MB manual is your friend. GL.
It's built, (barring GPU), what i meant was how do get it up and running? what do i need to do in BIOS etc
Sorry if it was unclear.
In BIOS select your DVD ROM as first boot device. Place the OS disk in the DVD tray. Save and Exit. When you are prompted to 'Press any key to boot from CD' you then Press any key and procede to load your OS. After loading your OS load all MB and system drivers. Get online and download all updates from MS for your OS. You will need a video card driver too. HTH.
Yeah, the new video card will have a CD with drivers. So you want to load the OS, then the MB/system drivers, then the Graphics card driver (Nvidia card drivers will work at this point, ATI cards need Net Framework 2.0 before the driver will install).
I suggest you go ahead and use the driver from the Graphics card CD. Nvidia.com will have the latest driver for your graphics card if the CD doesn't have it already.
I noticed you are using VISTA 32 OS. Your MB may have a special driver CD for VISTA. Use that CD if you have it. Your MB may also be 'VISTA ready'. VISTA OS will very likely supply many of the drivers you need for your MB. So, your MB CD may or may not be used when you try to install from it.
