Default Next week is the week...I need ya'lls help!!!

Well next weekend I'm going to build my first home custom PC...I have no idea how to do this, and have no one to help me alongside, so I can only count on ya'lls help and my intuition I guess. Any sites or good reads would be helpful.

Thanks!!!

i need to know more things as well. In which order should I put it together? When is it safe to turn on the computer? And most definately the hardware installations, bios, and software installations...

find a guid online. google it. we shouldnt have to spend half an hour or whatever typing it up when theres hundreds of guides out there. if your motherboard doesnt come with instructions look on their website, if theres none there then find a generic guide online.

Put drives in
Put fans/others in
Do the pwr button/led etc cables
