Default New Computer!

I just ordered the parts (minus the gpu cause it's still out of stock on newegg) for my new pc. It's going to be the first one I build for myself. Check my sig for details! I'm super pumped and kinda nervous cause it's my first time ;-) but I'm getting help from my friend who has built a few before. Got any advice for me?

Don't worry, 99% of the time, it boots up perfectly. 50% of the time, you need to mess around with a couple settings, and 25% of the time you either install something wrong, forget to plug something in, or have to RMA (Return) a part. Also, don't bother trying to plug anything in to the back of the computer untill you install the GPU!

haha Juice, I get what you mean. My friend who is helping me is letting me borrow his old geforce 4 series card until I get my 8800gt. I don't plan to do anything except test everything out until I get the gt.
