This looks pretty extensive. I only read the first few chapters. Found it to be just a little outdated.....but not bad. The best thing that you can do is to learn a lot about the hardware itself. Is this part compatable with that part....etc. You are starting from stratch....so be prepared to get a little frustrated! But it's also FUN!!! Also.....put you're reading glasses on.
If you have any questions and parts, compatability, etc. We'll be here.

LoL. I thought i would need the tutorials too. The truth is, after spending a few weeks here, and researching all my parts, i had already gained enough knowledge and knowhow to get it all working. When i ordered my parts, i just put it all together from memory of what i had read and known already. It's really a piece of cake once you set out to do it. Just research your parts well enough and do price comparisons, etc. You'll be fine.
