musicman978,

The basic steps are in this HowTo.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto.....-hardware/

The components are all outdated now.
Search http://newegg.com for the latest components using the HowTo as a guide.
Suggest you look at i7 Intel CPUs and compatible Asus motherboards.
Examples: http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....=BESTMATCH
http://www.newegg.com/Product/.....=Core%20i7
Your choice however. Read ALL Pros and Cons concerning parts.
Beware that Intel CPUs will change again shortly.

Building REQUIRES knowledge, fore-thought and a huge amount of pre-planning.
Regards.
