Default Building Computer

ok, im thinking about building and buying this computer for roughly 2.2k

Athlon Fx53
1 GB corsair RAM
80 gigabyte Hd
latest radeon card, dont know which it is
19 inch crt moniter view sonic i think
etc, etc.

This would be the first computer i build and i wondering: Am I capable of starting out with this high powered system?
Another question: If the case i buy comes with 4 fans, do i still need to add fans to the cpu and graphics card? (i will not OC, as i dont know how)?
Yeah im a newb

Also, anyone know of a step- by - step guide to building one, for a complete newb?

First,what is 2.2k ?
Step by step yes i do.
Start with at least what is known as an upgrade package.Case/pws,motherboard and cpu that is compatible.
Then go from there,but be sure you have a mbd manual and cd.
2.Read the manual,
3.Then add video card,hardrive and Windows.
4..Install what the mbd manual suggests
Don't get any internal audio or video,but it's up to you.
This is just my opinion,but everything has always worked for me this way.

Yes i've heard that before,only to get an insullting reply like
You don't make since.
So you decide.Don't follow this,then at least post about why you should have later.

Excellent then,buy the book and you won't need forum advice.

I followed these steps and have a very smooth running PC.

Case: Antec Plus View 1000 AMG
Mobo: Still deciding, prob. Asus KV8 Deluxe
Proccessor: AMD 64 3400
RAM: 2 512 Corsair
Hard Drive: 2 36k Western Digital Raptor's in RAID 0
CD-RW: Lite On
Sound Card: Audigy 2ZS
Video Card: nVidia 6800 Ultra
OS: Windows XP Home
Speakers: Logitech Z-680 (Once I get the money)
Moniter: Planar P1700 17" flat screen (something like that, once I get the money)
Other Crap: Enermax Multi function panel
Thermaltake 480 wt. Power supply
Thermal Grease
Extra Case fans
Case light
Thermaltake CPU cooler
Rounded Cables
* Odering from http://www.monarchcomputer.com

Yeah, its easy enough to start off on a highpowered system as long as nothing seriously bad goes wrong. Start up the Motherboard on an Anti-Static Mat or something before you put it in (not fun to put in or to take out; so best to only do it once) without anything connected except Power.

But beyond that, good luck with it.
