You put the cpu in the motherboard and then apply the paste on top of the back of the cpu. Then the heatsink fan sits on top of that. Part 2 of the newegg video shows it well. It is installed immediately as you are initially building the computer, not added later.

Thats what I have found as well. Newegg had it as a shell shocker deal a few days ago for $80 but they probably won't do that again for a while now.

The os comes on a disk and you need some sort to use the computer. It's what gives you the user interface to interact with the computer. This includes everything from changing the background to file management. You can't use the computer without one. Windows 7 comes with internet explorer pre-installed as it is the Microsoft internet browser. I personally prefer google chrome because I have found it to be faster. I usually only use internet explorer once (to install google chrome) and then forget about it. Haha. But that's just me. Part 3 of the newegg videos goes over the os install. It is the first thing you do after installing all of the components and ensuring that they work. Once again...great videos in my opinion.
