This may seem like a unusual questions but, when constructing a system from scratch what order do you install cards, drives, etc?
Perhaps this is unnecessary but I usually install the MB, CPU, RAM, HD, & video card then boot, install system, then proceed from there to ethernet card, sound card, and etc. Does this make a difference? Would it make a difference to know I also have a sATA Raid I want to install?
Details: (love this part)
MB: Asus P4C800-E Deluxe
CPU: P4 3.2GHz
video: Matrox Parhelia
sound: Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro
system Drive 160GB EIDE 7200
video drive sATA 80GB x2 raid 0
image & sound drive 80GB EIDE 7200
NLE: Matrox RTX-10 Pro
Any opinions? Any advice before I boot this puppy?
