Lightbulb god box.

well i have been looking around the web for a VERY long time now. trying to find the perfect computer. but im just decided to break down and build my own. but at that, i have no experience or idea about anything on building a computer. so i need some help:

1)i will be using this computer for "EVERYTHING". so it needs to be a "god box". no budget. <--help with parts.

2)i would like a detailed guide(book or online) on how to build a computer.(assembly, overclocking, OS installation, etc., etc.)

*thats all i can think of right now.

anything will help me, though. so thanks everyone.
