What to Monitor in SCOM 2012

I have installed SCOM 2012 and discovered/deployed agents to windows servers.
Then I installed Active Directory/Exchange/windows 2008 servers Management Packs.

Now In Active alerts, I see a lot of alerts. Some alerts I am not even sure if they are important.

What I think I need to monitor is :
Disk space
CPU usage if it stays >= 90% for 5 Minutes
RAM usage if it stays >= 90% for 5 Minutes
A running Service if it has stopped.

The rest I need to stop monitoring it for now.

How can I do that?

Any help will be very much appreciated

Thanks

I wonder if there is a way to disable everything, then go back and enable just what I need..

I am not expert in SCOM…so I am not sure how Administrators deal with that slew of alerts.

I will take it back…

I have created a state view and scoped it for Windows 2008.
Apparently, it shows old alerts too.

So I want this state View to show the same thing as Active Alerts.

OR
the preference is I will configure the same state view to show only active alerts, if possible.
how do I configure that ?

Thanks
