After getting all the hardware components assembled on a new build, in what order should I install software and drivers? Here is my plan at the moment:
1) Flash BIOS 2) Boot to DVD-ROM and install Windows 3) Install motherboard drivers and utilities from flash drive 4) Install graphics driver from flash drive 5) Connect to Internet 6) Download and install security application 7) Update Windows 8) Check for and install any other updates I may have missed
How does that sound? Did I miss something major? Should I be doing this in a different order?
Thank you for any advice, ~Steve

Only do #1 if you really need to. Otherwise, IMO, you should leave BIOS alone. The rest of your plan looks good.
