^^^ this. Before you try and build a computer you have to understand how they work, how they are put together and how to troubleshoot their problems. For example, my current build has had problems that my pc-shop owned roommate couldnt fix, which eventually got solved. Just spending some time on this site might help, but you really need to do research.
If you don't want to do the research and spend the time, then go to your local computer shop with a list of parts that were recommended from here, and pay the fee to have them put it together for you. Trust me, $60 is worth it if you have no idea what is going on.
Good luck either way ^_^
