So - i'm finally building my own system instead of being a Dell fanboy. I bought an Athlon64/FX launch prize pack from one of the winners.

Can someone give me a link to a good guide for putting together my system? Or walk me through it a bit?

I'm a little scared about mounting this big 'ol piece of copper on top of this uber expensive chip. Not to mention mounting the motherboard without shorting it against the case.
