New build bios settings, should I change em?

Hi, ppl have been very helpful on these forums so far for me (thanks! ) so I have some more questions!

new system specs:

Asus p5w dh deluxe

e6600 core 2 duo

2gb kit crucial ballistix tracers ddr2 pc2-6400

8800gts 320mb

Antec nine hundred case

Upon putting this new build together are there any bios settings that I should really change or should I leave everything as it is? I am not looking to over clock at first, but just trying to get everything running at its stock potential.

For instance I am using 2gb kit ddr2 pc2-6400 crucial ballistix tracers with recommended timing of 4-4-4-12 and 2.2v should the bios set these itself with that spd option or will I prob have to change them manually and with this 6600 core should it run at ddr2-667 or ddr2-800 without overclock?

If anyone has advice on this an any other bios changes I should make at the start it would be very helpful.

I would just like to know so I dont change something I shouldn't...

If you want stock just leave everything. Just maybe disable the on-board features you don't want and makes sure your boot priorities are correct.

If not overclocking then most options do not need to be changed. But I would check that the memory is running at default timings as sometimes the mobo will use slacker timings.

Your setup is asking to be overclocked however
