Default Help with building a computer

Ok im still working on picking out the parts and everything but i was just wondering if there is anything in particular that i should know about building computers. I have taken an old computer out of its box and then put it togeather and it runs so i know some. Im going to build an athlon 64 computer and use windows xp. So i was just wondering if you had any advice form anything you all ran into when building you computers. Also i am looking for a video card. I would like thats an agp 4x/8x and has either 2 dvi outputs or a vga and a dvi output. i would like to spend less than a 100 dollars on it and i like the nView thing that come with the XFX cards. thank you for your help.

1) What is your overall budget?

2) AGP is being fazed out.

3) Stay away from XFRX cards.
