Default new computer

well... i basically upgraded all my things.

getting a new motherboard = new processor chip = new supply and video card and so on... along with that i got a new hard drive... for booting.

now im wondering what to do 1st. i already have everything connected on the mobo. but leaving out the floppy drive cuz mines is dead...
