Default new stuff

I am a newbie if u havn't noticed my other posts. My questions is... Is it easy to install memory, HDD's, and video cards urself. i mean i can see where everything SHOULD go for 8X video cards and i can just see hw my memory and hhd is set up. But like is there more to it then just pluggin it in?

for RAM, it's as easy as slotting it in and making sure it's seated correctly

for Hard Drive's, you plug in an IDE cable, a molex power cable, and set the jumpers

after it's plugged in, just format using a Windows CD or boot disk, or in My Computer if you have Windows installed on another hard drive just right click and 'format'

slot in GFX card, screw it into the bracket, plug in yer monitor and boot up

then install the latest drivers, from a CD that comesa with it or from the internet.
right click on my computer, go to properties, hardware, device manager, find yer GFX card in the list, right click it, go to update driver, browse to your driver CD or file, and let it install
