Default Looking for a noob's IN-DEPTH guide on building your own rig

Not for me, but im not the best at explaining.
My bud wants to build his own - i offered to help him but he'd have none of it.

Anyone know of a good in-depth guide to building a good gaming rig/rig in general (air cooled/or liquid doesnt matter.)

pictures would be sweet!

the guide idealy would have things from preparing, precautions, the actual building, and what to do afterwards.

thanks!

There was a thread a few months back that lead to the answers you'd need to build from scratch. Ill try and search it out and edit this later.
