Here's pretty good for parts and stuff...and what to do...you just gotta know vocab and stuff.
For this, i'd recommend a book...and don't get one from the libaray, go buy one....cauze then you don't have to worry 'bout returning it...you can take your time.

I'd buy the book, then read it, then go get the parts, then consult the book as to how to put it together...

We're always here to help.

I learned a ton by reading stuff off google searches and then going to newegg.com and trying to peice out what i needed. Then once i thought that i found all i needed, i posted the stuff here and got help. Seriously this forum will help you probably more than any other place.
