There are many websites on this.

The main thing about building a computer is to take your time to make sure everything goes together right. I have had to fix numerous problems with screws being the wrong thread for the fitting, heatsinks put on sloppily, broken memory locks, bent pins on drives -cdroms- and power supplys. All these problems were because the people were in a hurry. Read everything you can about booting up new computers, formatting drives, and troubleshooting problems. The more you read the easier it will go with a build. The first computer i built i spent $1100 on simply because i thought i knew everything and didnt read up on anything. If i had taken the time it would have saved me $500 of broken parts i had to replace at my cost.

Motherboard manuals are usually the best as they contain specific details, they usually arent motherboard manuals they are PC building manualss really. You can get manuals online and before building or working on a pc its a good thing to give a read before hand.
