Do: Take lots of pictures.

Don't: Work on your PC on the kitchen/dining room table(if you're married, in a relationship, or live at home with mom)...if you value your life.

Don't: Rush... take your time, it's worth it.

Do: Have fun

DO NOT assembly your pc at 1:00AM like I did...make sure that your well rested and take your time at everything you do.

DO NOT keep a hammer or other tools in your sight, I tend to smash things when I'm angry..

Ensure you have a USB Stick or a Floppy Drive for Bios Flashes and RAID Installations.

Go forum hunting on all the products you are installing in case a product is shipped out without proper accessories (Sapphire 3870 x 2- 8-pin Molex cable)

Do not use Facial tissue to check to see how strong a fan is when the side door of your computer case is off or open......... talk about a horrible sound!!!!!! I think I am still finding pieces of it inside the case!!!
