New build

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?

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

  2. install security software, clone hd, partition my hd when I get it? Advice on software?
  3. Apparently no love for a newb on this site!
  4. 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
  5. 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?

    1)I don't believe so
    2)You could, but you could also not bother. Depends.
    3)I believe Windows'll do that ok.
    4)I dunno
    5)same as 4
  7. oh that

    trend micro internet security and Acronis true image workstation will satisfy that.

  8. 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).
