New to the site and new to building computers. I just put together a brand spanking new system for the first time! So far everything is good and I want to make sure it stays that way. I have a 40gb Intel ssd that i'm going to use just to boot up Windows 7 home prem. So, that's where I stand right now. I have another hd on the way. What step should I take next?

I'm not sure what you're asking. Next step would be to enjoy your new build? I dunno ...

heheh.. feels like that now and then. ;) 

So you've got the other parts as well?

I'm also a bit unsure as to exactly what advice you're looking for..

btw, welcome to Tom's and also to pc building :D

Ok, bare with me please. I plan on using my 40gb ssd just to boot up. I installed Norton on this drive also. When I get the other hd do I have to install Norton on that drive to? It's going to be 1Tb, should I partition it? If so, what software is good for that. I was told it's good idea to clone my drive. Can I clone my ssd with any drive? What software is good for cloning?

And btw, Norton's antivirus capabilities aren't very good; it's worse than some of the good free antivirus software like AVG (Free version), Avast! and Avira (Free version).
