    Ok building a computer is sort of like assemblying LEGO pieces. You just have to place the parts together, and connect the right wires. It's actually a pretty simple process. To build a computer, these parts are required:

    1. Motherboard (Mobo2. CPU (Central Processing Unit)

    3. RAM (Memory)

    4. PSU (Power Supply Unit)

    5. Hard Drive

    These parts aren't required to build a computer, but they enhance it:

    1. Graphic Card (Video Card)

    2. Fans (To get rid of excess heat)

    3. CD/DVD Drive

    I suggest getting some help, as when you usually buy parts, they don't have any specific manuals. You might need some help, because some parts like the CPU may be easily damaged if not handled or placed properly.
