Link to HowTo 101 video of putting a PC together and how simple it really is. It sounds a bit daunting but computers are built like Lego, only far less easy to get it wrong. Seriously, Lego offers serious chances to be wrong, building computers does not.|
Engineers have this cool idea (spelling may vary) of ok pokey. Basically building connectors so there isn't a wrong way. They only fit the one way: expansion cards only slot into the right slot as the others are the wrong shape; square processors have a notch on one corner so they can only fit the right way round despite looking like you could mess it up; RAM can only go one way as a notch 2/3rds down them mean they won't mate when you try backwards. It basically means if it fits then you've done it right.
