... Someone who is a complete noob to build a pc. I'm really not impressed with the "next gen" consoles so I think PC is the way to go but would like to build my own.

Not hard. I think that depending on the CPU heatsink it might be a pain. Make sure you get a good one.

Also, a modular PSU and a nice case are recommended to make things easier and nicer.

Just follow video tutorials, like the Newegg one or Carey Holzman's. It's not hard, but for a beginner it's likely to take up a whole day unboxing stuff, assembling it, and installing things.

You can't even accidentally plug something where it shouldn't go. Everything has its own size and shape besides the HDD/optical drives which makes no difference anyway. I think some LED lights won't turn on if you insert them upside down too.

The hardest part is by far choosing the right parts, and there are many people here who would be willing to guide you on what to get for your budget.

All the cables and components are designed to only fit where they are supposed to go and are usually labeled accordingly.
The only tool you should need is a Philips screw driver.

I built my first this year and it was easy (and fun). Besides looking at some basic guides so you know what to expect, best advice I can offer is go through the manual that comes with your specific motherboard enough so you know it inside and out.

It's something my son and I are going to go together. i guess my biggest concern is I couldn't even tell you what parts I need. I'm guessing the videos will cover that.
