Default First Time building with AMD Please help.

Ok I have always loved Intel but I I can't help but jump on the X2 Bandwagon. I have decided to buy the X2 4400+, ASUS A8N-SLI, and a 7800 GT. I wanted some info for setting up this system. What do I need to know? Do I have to reinstall windows if my raptor is already set up on a P4 to be compatible with AMD? And when I first put everything together what drivers am I going to need? Thanks in advance.

What drivers? Install the drivers that come with your motherboard and graphics card. When you get your internet connection down, update them.
