Nope not really, I mean there are a few general steps to follow.... As for the bios you shouldnt need to touch it at all. Just gotta be careful about static electricity when working with the individual parts (just to be on the safe side). I usually put the cpu/cooler and ram on the motherboard before putting it in the case and then once its secured in the case add the PSU then the other parts, tidy up the wiring and test it out. Everyone has a different order to do it but thats the loose order i always follow. Hope this helped

Ok thanks because my father kind of scared me a little. He told me that back then when he was into computers, he said you had to configure and adjust every voltage. I was pretty sure it was no longer like that thought just wanted to make sure.

Hey has anyone any experience with Galaxy GPUs?

Galaxy MDT GeForce GTX 580 860MHZ 1536MB 4GHZ DDR5 DisplayPort 3x Mini-HDMI PCI-E Video Card - Galaxy Technology - 58NLH5DI5TXX (580)
It comes with BF3 and I was planning to buy it anyway so you can pretty much remove 50$ from the price...
They also have this: Galaxy GeForce GTX 570 732MHZ 1280MB 3.8GHZ DDR5 Flip Fan Design 2xDVI 1x Mini-HDMI PCI-E Video Card - Galaxy Technology - 57NKH3HS4GXK (570 Also with BF3)

Or should I go with a more known company like: Asus or EVGA, MSI Gigabyte.

Basicly what's the best GPU I could get for 300$ and less (350$ if with BF3)

Dont get that galaxy car (just because it probably requires a few adapters that MIGHT push your budget) galaxy is a fine company but honestly that card isnt needed. I would say just go with that gigabyte 570 you linked or the asus 560ti448 that I use. Thats just my opinion though

Just realised my board was an mATX any problem if I get a triple slot card in a Corsair 600T?
ASUS Maximus V Gene mATX LGA1155 Z77 DDR3 CrossFireX SLI 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 SATA3 USB3.0 Motherboard - ASUS - Maximus V GENE
Btw I'm going for :

Well a triple slot can work but it will cover the entire board (sorry I forgot its mATX) you might not want to get a triple slot card or such a small mobo
