Welp, now that I ordered everything, are there any guides out there someone can point me to that are up to date for building/setup your own PC?

Don't know about that, but I built my first by tearing the old one apart and putting the new parts in where the old ones were. 3 comps later I just do it.

There's always that fear when I turn it on the first time... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Most of the hardware components come with good install instructions. Make sure to read the motherboard manual thoroughly first. You'll figure it out ok without a guide.

Um, er ok. May the force be with me. Actually, that was one thing the ASUS MOBO reviews said was a very easy manual. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Don't be afraid. Grab a screwdriver and your fasvorite beverage and dive right in. (Just don't confuse the tool with the drink)
