I'm getting a new MPB and will upgrade the memory by way of 2 Crucial modules. The thing is, is it better to install them before I even turn on my MBP for the first time, or should I set it up first and then install the new memory?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Set the machine up first and make sure everything is running right before upgrading the memory. And always make a backup (use Time Machine) of your data before doing any kind of upgrade, including memory.
