Default Guide to starting up my new computer

Thanks for a lot of your guys answers to my questions, they were really helpful in my decision making. I was just wondering, when I finally get my system is there any guides, recommendations, or programs for the first procedures such as memory test ( for the various components ) , gfx card test, bios settings etc.

Build it like your very first time - See what fits and see if it works.
