Help - DIY4, SW load Order of precedence
on Mar 30, 2006 at 10:36:48 pm

I am building a DIY4. See specifics below for those who care. I am formatting the drive as this is being posted. Does anyone have recommendations on the order to install the SW.

MS Win XP Prof (This has to be first)

But how about these other loads:

SP2 - Second?

Asus MB Utilities

PNY Card Driver and Install CD

Samsung DVD Software

Does this order look correct? What about a Bios update to the motherboard?



Motherboard: A8N-SLI Deluxe

CPU: AMD 64 X2 4400+

Memory: OCZ 2x1GB Platinum Edition PC3200/DDR400

Video: PNY FZ540 PCIe

Disk: WD250KS

DVD: Samsung SH162L (With litescribe)

Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 532 RC-532-SKN1 Black Aluminum

PowerSupply: Antec SP350 (Will change later, but only one I could find local and on $20)

I personally think there is no specific order.

I wouldn't suggest SP2 if your computer won't be used for the internet.

I suggest, OS, then Hardware drivers (get the latest drivers if possible), then your NLE software & support programs.

no need to update your MB BIOS unless it will fix a problem you're having.

if it aint broken don't fix it.

my 2 cents
