You know, I have no troubles of linking to your websites or articles if they are great and make up for a good story. Beecher send in a link to one of his articles that gives some sound advice on how to build and setup the rock solid computer. It's not the usual walkthrough that tells you to how to assemble an PC, it's more than that.
The article is divided into four parts, the first talks about the parts that you need and some things that you should take care of. What I really like is that he gives tips without hardware recommendation. The advice is general and users who have never build a PC in their life will love his advice will professionals will probably only skimp over it and come to the conclusion that they hardly learned anything new from the article.
The other three parts are Assembly, Testing, Loading the Operating System and as a bonus optional tweaks. The assembly part is without doubt the most important part if you want to build a PC. Believe it or not I did not put any thermal paste on the CPU of my first PC that I build myself. I was lucky that it ran without problems until a friend reminded me that I had to apply it immediately.
You will find those tips there, tips that you learn the hard way sometimes but are guaranteed to never miss again. I will write an article with images detailing the process of building the PC from the parts that I will buy. The only thing that I do not like that much is that you actually have to click on the different parts to read the whole article. That's not very user friendly.
