Anyway now after I order these parts in the coming months, I know you install the hard drive, your psu, your disk drive, and your mobo, connect your ram, graphics, and any other parts, along with connecting sata cables, and the like, and also connecting the most important PSU to all the parts.

Once that is completed, I am aware that you will be prompted to the BIOS screen if everything is connected properly, and nothing arrived DOA, then you follow up on pressing "Boot From Disk" Option, and then install my os (Windows 7 OEM) Then once that is completed, I will have a fresh hard drive, nothing on it but Windows 7 x64. Anyway What drivers do i need to install, I will be running a cable for internet (Ethernet) and shouldn't need a driver for my wireless adapted, because i dont have one. Haha. Anyhow, I then would pop in my graphics card drivers disk, Install those and then install my internet browser, games, necessary programs, such as Windows Office. Also antivirus. As to my knowledge I dont think I need drivers for the CPU, right? And aside from that, what else do i need to install.

Basically my only knowledge, is actually physically putting the pc together, and then the OS installation, and drivers, I know how to because, I have nuked, and renuked, time and time again on Dell laptops, and desktops, but in those cases it had a "reinstallation of os" disk, and then a master cd, of bios, and drivers.

Thanks to everyone who is willing to help me out :)

Nope, it is completely cool. I just don't really know the answer here.

Video Cards and other after the build PCI cards need drives most of the time,
but things like Hard Drive, RAM, DVD Drive, CPU, and so on. Only driver you would
really need is one for the video card.

Also, that is a good case. Cable management in it makes for an easy build. :D
