Alot of people think computer parts are really delicate, I have to say, in my personal experience computer parts are extremely resilient. So long as you are careful of ESD there is little chance of your breaking something. The "only" way you are going to break something is if you try to force an expansion card into a slot, or do something dumb like drop the cpu (or expansion card) from 4+ feet onto a hard floor. And as for building the computer. Its extremely easy. Put Part 1 in slot 1, etc, etc. Nothing hard about it.

Just
First make a list of waht you may be using from your old system... If your not ignore that thought.
Then start with a favorites folder, add in sub folders and lable the main one My Dream PC, lable the sub folders for the parts links, MB, CPU, RAM etc...
Once you get a perspective of what you want and what you may get, create additional folders called something like Build1, Build 2 and creat the systems you may build in each folder.
Hang out here, ask questions, search the web and you'll learn fast the right way to build it

Building from scratch is pretty easy, especially if you're good with your hands and mechanically oriented. IMHO building a system yourself is the best way to go because you get to personally customize every detail of the sytem to your own liking and you put your sweat and (hopefully not) tears into it. Nothing beats the joy of building a computer and then hitting that power button for the first time and have it fire up. It is also a very good skill to learn. Don't be intimidated - as Niko-Time said, you have an entire forum to back you up!

This should get you started off real nice:

E6400 $217 shipped to a E6600 for $309 shipped

P5B Deluxe for $183

Corsair 2GB DDR2-800 for $239 shipped or 2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1000 $309 shipped

EVGA 8800GTS for $420 or a EVGA 8800GTX for $630

1 or 2 160GB 7200RPM 16MB SATA3.0 Drives for $65 each (2 would give you super fast RAID0)

1 or 2 DVD Burners for $32 each

700 Watt OCZ PSU for $125

And a nice case

That is a pretty decent build range. You can go cheaper, or more expensive, depending on your budget.

I just built my system about two weeks ago and had never built one before and it wasnt that bad at all. I got a pretty sick computer that I use for gaming for around $2000 from newegg, and a comparable one from dell was around $3000 or more. You can get a decent one for less than that if you get some different parts (I spent $300 on 2 gigs of ram but you can get 2 gigs for $200, and other things like that) Building it was pretty fun actually if you like putting things together and it definitely was a lot cheaper then a prebuilt one

i just recently built my first PC. it ran about $2300 from the motherboard to monitor ot software.

its pretty easy. just basic knowledge of installing a part that fits. like what others have said, its like a jigsaw/lego set

Thanks all. You've all been a GREAT help to me. And having the board back me up while building will be GREAT!
