Can anyone direct me to a really good detailed guide, preferably with lots of pictures or better yet a video, on how to put together a custom PC.
My friend gave me a list of components to buy and all have arrived, but I am not the best (quite bad) with hardware.

Here is the list of components i bought just in case that helps:

how to install ram

your motherboard manual will tell you everything you need to know in terms of plugging things in. highly recommend to use an anti static wristband

You would already know how to plug in your keyboard and monitor i assume.

a guide with 7 pages for motherboard info

hmmm dvd drive, another easy one, but just incase

ummmmm processor, thats the main one. it should already come with some thermal compound, if not, buy some!

here a guide to install intel processor, it also is a seven page guide

graphics card:

hard drive, same method as dvd drive
and last of all, power supply, screw it in and just connect the correct cables.

so yea, let us know how you get on !
