Going by the ~$800 budget you had on the first page, I'd go:

CPU: $125 AMD Phenom II X4 960T
HDD: $100 750GB Hitachi Deskstar
GPU: $260 Sapphire HD 6950
MB + OS: $205 ASRock 970 Extreme4 + Win7 HP 64-Bit OEM
PSU + ODD: $75 OCZ ModXStream Pro 600 + Sony 24x DVD/CD Burner
RAM + Case: $89 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 + Cooler Master HAF 912

Total = $854 (-$55 in rebates = $799)

All the components come with initial drivers, I would certainly check for updated drivers on the video card once its installed though.

Two good building guides:
Build a PC - Introduction to Building your PC - PCitYourself.com


Reading the manuals that come with components will help with specifics, or post up questions you have here.

Light up, in what way? Some fans have LEDs, your motherboard has a light, your power and hdd light up front.

Usually, it's 3-5 day shipping. Depends on your location and where it is coming from. You can watch the tracking to get an idea where it is.

It ships from Newegg's warehouse. The case is going to be in a seperate package, and the rest might be in 1 or 2 packages, depending how much they can safely package in a box.
