> Intel Core2Duo E8600 CPU

Congratulations, that is the fastest Core 2 Duo ever made, always wanted one of those but they were way out of my price range at the time.

> Nvidia GTS 250 1024 Mb GPU
> Windows 7 64 bit SP1 software
> Antec HCG620M 620 W 80+ Bronze PSU
> 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 667MHz PC2-5300 PC2-5400 DDR2 667 (240 PIN) DIMM RAM

Great, well done on the PSU. Did you remember the thermal paste?

Sure, it makes a lot of sense to flash the latest BIOS before doing anything else.

I don't understand why you're worried about the order, just swap out everything at once and then do a clean install of Windows 7. I mean, that's how it's usually done. The order doesn't really matter, except of course finish the hardware first like Traso said.

Microsoft provides a free tool that can make a bootable flash drive from a Windows 7 DVD image or disc. This makes the installation go much faster. I can't remember what it's called right now but it should be easy to find.

Good luck, keep us posted!
