Default like a new something?

So I'm building my very first computer rig and I am scared ****less. I have almost zero experience on installing computer parts (aside from the basic ram and gpu upgrade). I really need your help on which parts to install first and what not.

I got the antec 1200 and the core i7 920 already. Then the rest are on the way. Should be here just after the new year.

Here's what I got:

EVGA X58

Corsair Dominator 6GB

Corsair 750TX

WD Caviar Black 640GB
I'm just sticking with this for now till I can afford 2 velociraptors for raid0

LG Black 22X (CAV) DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X (CAV) DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVDĪR DVD Burner - OEM

evga g8600
waiting for some cash to get the gtx260 core 216's

Your help will be very much appreciated.

Get one of these:
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL PI Black 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Better timings and voltage.
