I opened Bitcoin once I finished installing and I got a warning saying to make sure my computer's date and time are correctly set and that if it is not, it may work incorrectly.  My question is if their is any specific time server I should sync my computer with or should I just stay with my default geographical windows time server?

You should check out ntp.org if you're interested in accurate time keeping.  The built in windows time sync will not adjust your clock if it's more than a few minutes off and you have to bring it within tolerance by hand first.  A better choice is to use the NTP daemon and start it with the -g option which allows it to make a large adjustment at startup.
