Yes, first thing is the Windows disc. Then, motherboard drivers (from the included CD or if you already downloaded a new version and copied to a blank CD from another PC). After that, I suggest getting the Norton Antivirus and Firewall up. Then go online and download new video drivers, sound drivers, windows update, Norton Liveupdates, whatever programs you want to use.

yeah, definitly connecting to the internet shouldn't be a priority until you have some kind of protection. but if you have to for some reason just make sure you have the windows firewall turned on and you should be okay.
