Comcast Internet - Any suggestions prior to hookup? Also, modem/router suggestions?

I just signed up for Comcast Internet 25mbps. (yes, I've just sold my soul)

I moved and I had no choices left except my mobile provider which just doesn't cut it with multiple devices, especially with my Xbox 360.

So, my question is, these Xfinity guys are coming out to do the install this coming Sunday. Any advice on what I should expect, get ready in advance, etc.  I decided to rent their modem/router for the first 2-3 months to get through Christmas.

Perhaps I can purchase the best replacement modem (DOCSIS 3) that money can buy during Black Friday.

So, any and all advice, comments, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.  :)
