Post A Worried Customer...

I recently ( 2 days ago ) purchased a computer from newegg.com. I paid pre-paid check, therefor have to wait 3-4 days for them to get the check. Anyway, this will be my first computer build ever, and I am still fairly illiterate to computer administrative funtions. With my computer I have now, i mostly just installed games without knowing how anything worked and hoped the game ran. Somehow they always did. Well the point here, is I am wondering what exactly I should do once I assemble everything, to what I assume will be the correct way. Keep in mind I am a novice at this, so a farily detailed explanation would be HUGELY appreciated or any helpful links. I shouldn't have much trouble with hardware, as I have someone to show me how it goes together. But, they are also not to good on the software end of things. So, thanks in advance for any help, later.

Here is another very comprehensive guide, that should answer many questions. It helped me considerably:


Good luck!
