    well for starters you will need to install a AMD processor and an operating system :)

    are you building a new computer or swapping motherboards?

    so you basically need to boot from your Windows 7 DVD in order to install the operating system after the system is fully assembled. you will need to format the hard drive with the DVD and then it will walk you through the rest of the setup. you may need to install additional drivers after Win7 is installed but they should be included on the CD/DVD that ships with the motherboard.

    post back if you run into any problems...
