Default What Should I Expect?


As some may have seen my topics, I've finally ordered all components for my new pc.. and they come in 2 days.. (problems with delivery before.. i said in previous topics, i should have them by today..)...


Im just wondering what should i expect of my new computer?

By this i mean, what do I have to do to get it up and running, what tweaks ect should i do. Any software that would help the computer, ect ect.

Im going to use my old HD.. (40GB..) , i know, its not a lot, but i had a tight budget, didnt have the money to buy windows xp..

My old pc melted inside, it got so bad that It wouldnt turn on properly, MB i guess is completely wrecked... It even somehow messed up my mx510 mouse completely, wont work at all..

I know i will have disks to install, but as im using another HD in my old pc, it will have my last pc specs on it.. ? (By this, i mean in device manager...)

So, I am guessing that I will have to install the disks that come, and disable my older hardware that is in the device manager.. ?

First time, its been fun, dont want anything bad to happen.

Any help appreciated,
