When putting in your motherboard your gonna need standoffs(look like rubber washers)between the case and the motherboard.You'll also need aditional supplies like; Silver-based thermal paste, proper heatsink&fan, not to mention all the parts you want in your rig...

Any more questions?

static damage is way over rated- Ive built hundreds of computers and have as yet to lose one to static electricty- ive assembeled them on carpets-Just don't drop screws into the unit with it turned on.-most heatsinks for cpu's come pre thermal padded.

Yeah; when I come downstairs when I want to watch TV and do something with a Computer my Dad is always 'Ah! Put your Static Wristband on' I've juggled the two harddrives I'm using now - don't be scared to touch anything or bother with Static Leads or what your computer is put on.
