    Take a look here
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Actually assembling the hardware is surprisingly easy.

    The two difficult parts are picking the right components and then troubleshooting any problems that might crop up.

    I'd probably break all the parts, I was looking at the guide adamp2p posted and the guy building the pc said you have to be careful and not rough.. that would be hard for me.

    It's easy. For me though, I had to take my time. I was concerned I'd break something. But bit by bit, I got a screaming computer for ~$425USD. It would of cost me ~$900-$1200 store bought.

    it's not hard. just make sure u know wat ur doing. do some background research. the assembling isn't hard. like clocker said, the troubleshooting is harder.

    You can save yourself a world of time if you assemble everything outside of the case and power it up the first time.
    That way you know that she'll POST at least before you get everything all installed and spend a few hours ziptieing all your cables nice and neat.
