K, so thx to the help of u guys, I ordered my new PC parts. Should be here within the next 2 days. So, when I build it, do I immediatly load the OS, or motherboard driver or what. Help me here plz. I have no clue what do once its built.
I generally load system drivers from the motherboard cd, winrar, video drivers, and I'm good to go. If it's a complete new build CoreTemp is a good idea just to make sure the cpu and heatsink are seated properly and running at normal temps.
As far as testing goes though, I just jump right in and start using it. I don't see the need for Prime95 and FurMark - if something ain't right I'll find out about it soon enough just by doing what I do, rather than sitting around for hours waiting for the stress tests to end.
