PS: I heard you have to ground yourself before touching any hardware...how do i do that? Can I just like, wear rubber gloves and build it like that?

None of your links work. They sell anti-static wrist straps at most computer stores for $5-10. I personally just frequently touch grounded unpainted metal frequently during the build. I think that rubber gloves would actually produce more static electricty than your bare hands. The CPU is what you will want to be most cautious with. What kind of budget are you working with?

ahh, so rubber gloves are a bad idea. well, the only thing that is way out of the picture is the gfx card. everything is else is around the middle-range. I just wanna make it last for a couple of years. And, I'm also trying to get ready for Crysis. Thats why I chose the gfx card.

Unless you need your computer right now, if your planning on building for crysis I recommend waiting. The game is to be released on november 16 and around that time Nvidia will be releasing their new high end graphics cards. Also don't get a rosewill PSU.
