Like rohan23 said it doesnt really matter.

I always install the network card driver first so I can connect to the internet and get all the other drivers straight to the PC rather then getting the drivers from another pc, putting them on USB stick and then taking over to your new build PC. If you have all the drivers on CD then this doesnt matter.

I really wouldn't recommend using the CD's for drivers. They are usually outdated and won't be fully optimized. Do what Matt said and install the network drivers first and get everything off of the websites.

Just make sure you're firewall is up before you do that. Some OS' don't automatically enable the firewall.
