Default New computer help?! please?!

Well i just finished building my computer formatting the hard drive and stuff about 1 hour ago...and....things arent going well. I try to install a game and it crashes everytime....perhaps i need to get motherboard drivers? Any suggestions or solutions....either way they are greatly appreciated. I also apologize in advance for my spelling mistakes.

Some computer specs etc would be a good start mate. Put all your drivers and updates on aswell (if you havent done so already)

yeah what joxley said is right.. we need to know what parts you're using in order to determine the problem.
