A couple of things...

If it feels like you have to use a lot of force to connect something, then your probably doing it wrong.

I've read that it's good to connect one component at a time, make sure it's working correctly then proceed. MB, cpu, memory and keyboard all at once first.

good ideas:

hmm... using anti-static wristband

bad ideas:

force things into place, not using a anti-static area on carpeted areas... putting ur parts on the carpet.... those are bad.... really bad!!
