Sheesh took forever to get all the parts in... 5 separate boxes. Got them all by the 23rd. Last night we finished putting it together and I HOPE we did it right. It was all the psu cables that almost had me confused. It is running so it must be ok?? We didn't do a bios configure from the start, should I go back and do that? I'll post a pic soon :o)

Is there anything else I needed to know as far as setting it up?

Have you installed the OS yet? I don't know if tou finally got vista. If you didn't, just install Windows7 RC and buy it later. If you are not overclocking and everything boots correctly, i suppose you do not need to configure the bios. Just test every parts you tested : Run cpu-z, gpu-z (or other programs like that), test your your dvd drive (guess it works if you installed the OS...), AND PLAY A GAME.
