BIOS, format the HD's and setup SATA, install Windows... not really sure about what order things go in and if it will even start up at all....

here's what I'm using: e6600, evga 680i A1, Ultra-120 Extreme, Evga 8800GTX, 2x1 GB G-Skill DDR2-800, 2x160GB WD SATA II HD's, Lite-On SATA CD/DVD, 3.5" Floppy, and a 700watt ultra power supply. I also am going to install a fresh copy of Windows Vista HP x32.

Any helpful guidelines would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
