Really? From what I've seen, getting the PSU to all its proper slots and places and plugs seems hardest; i.e, proper wiring

I recall mine from memory. I've done that much work since I started messing around with PC's nearly a year ago.

The hardest part of a PC build for me is selecting the parts that you want. They're is so much to choose from.

Putting it together is the fun part
