Default New PC (Unknown problems in windows :S ?)

Newly made PC with the following bits

Abit AN8 32X
AMD 4400+ Dual Core X2 64bit
2x 1gig OCZ Plat
PowerColor ATI Radeon X1800 XT 512MB GDDR3 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
Western Digital 74gig Raptor 10,000 RPM.

The problems are =

Things dont download properly.

somethings refuse to run like Firefox (I mean the installer), my sound card drivers. all weird errors.
I really have no idea what could possibly be causing such weird problems. I have used 1 stick of RAM, and even 512 of my old memory.

Tried my old ram and the issue still remains.

I mean that if I try n download the creative drivers. It goes all the way to the end but never finishes. I have to cancel it. Re download it, and it recovers the entire thing instantly from cache.
