I will be building my first PC soon as I've ordered the parts for the system in my profile.

I've never messed with BIOS before so I need some help in making sure I have the correct settings. If most of the default settings are fine then I'll leave it alone.

I know that, at a minimum, I need to set date and time and adjust the boot priority so that I can load Vista.

Thanks for your help.

You'll have to set up boot order in bios & maybe up the vdimm to 2.0v for 4x1gb ram at least. Date/time can be set in an OS.
