Is there a good guide out there on actually assembling the new rig?

    Got all the parts delivered today, just need a good guide to take me step by step. I have my friend coming by to assist who has done it before but I would like to get it started and do some of it myself.

    Anybody ever come across a good guide out there to take me piece by piece on putting it all together rather than going off of instruction booklets?

    I have searched but not found anything good. Thanks again for everything!

    List your system specs (All of the parts you're using), putting a computer together isn't very difficult. I can give you some steps on doing it no problem.

    ^That's a good video. Follow that and you should have no problems. Once you have everything put together and are ready to install Windows and need help from there, let us know. :)
