Default Is there a tutorial on building Computer?

Is there a free tutorial step-by-step on how to build a computer?
I've google'd up few, turned out you need to pay to get them. Is there any free ones that I can take a look?

Thanks alot.

Well, it's always good to have your own copy so you can reformat anytime you want right? :bald:

if you have an OEM disk and serial, you can only activate it on one computer. the hardware can change a little bit but not majorly like a new motherboard, or you will have to activate again, but it won't because it will think you have a different computer. you will have to call MS to get a new serial or for them to reset the activation status of that key

with retail boxed versions I think the limit is 3 computers
