Ok I have made all my purchases, and I have everything ready to be put together.

System will be as follows:

DFI LANPARTY UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G AM2

AMD 6400+ Black Edition

OCZ DDR2 800 PC2 6400 LanParty optimized memory

XFI Fatality sound card, (being pulled from the current system)

EVGA 640-P2-N827-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB

Raptor X 150 gig HD.

LiteOn 20 IDE DVD burner

 

There will be other harddrives and such added after the system is sound, but this is the basic build.

 

How should I go about putting it all together, what tests should I run and if I need to update the bios how can I with out a floppy.

Does anyone have a step by step guide to putting this altogether, and also any guides as to what to set in the bios. I will not be overclocking so any guide to that effect won't be all that helpful. I have built many computers before, but I have always used ASUS boards and they have been pretty much plug and play, no real issues.

I am slightly less confident of my abilities when building a DFI setup because of all the tweaking that seems to be required.

 

Also should I build everything outside of the box and then put it in when it is running well. I have a MB tray so that isn't too much of an issue.

 

Also where is the best place to make sure I have all the appropriate drivers and such, I have my current computer up and running so I can burn everything to cd before I start.

Also do you all think it is worth it to make up a build cd, by extracting XP off of my original cd and adding sp2, and all the hot fixes to it plus, adding in a folder of all relevant apps that I will need, and if you all think that is a good idea, can someone point me to a site that shows you how to incorporate hot fixes into a bootable cd. Thanks!!
