In San Antonio, Altex has a checklist for noobs like I was before that help you get the parts for your pc, even then once you get everything, the hardest part was working with the power cords, and trying to figure where the power needs to go like drives, fans, and motherboards and all, I got a combo motherboard with the processor already hooked up, I heard putting that in takes precision...

Surprisingly enough the CPU isn't that hard to get in, there's quite a few fail-safes put in to ensure you actually have the thing in the right way.

Hardest part is installing the heatsink. The small case/LED/etc connectors can also be a pain due to how small they are and how precise you need to be.

But you cannot go wrong, just do it.

770gtx any good? I have a 670, but plan to upgrade it to the 770, any huge difference? I want a higher than 1080p resolution monitor though so we will see.

If you're going to a higher resolution might as well get the 780 ti. The 4gb edition of the 770 doesn't have enough power to play at the higher resolutions, and would be a waste.

Already mentioned but...
The hardest part is by far choosing the right parts,


This.
If you get things that all play nicely, it's as easy as Tab A goes in Slot A, Tab B goes in Slot B...I've yet to make a computer whose parts didn't come with enough instructions to figure it out even if it was a first time builder working on it.

Note that "play nicely" does include a few things though. Not just "does [x] work with [y]", but making sure your power supply can do the job, having enough space inside your case if you're going for a smaller setup, and stuff like that.

1) Static electricity, meaning, when you rub your feet on carpet and shock someone. Is bad for any electronic.

2) If the computer is plugged in when you need to get inside it, turn it off and unplug it, gonna have a bad time if you don't.

3) Now, just a few youtube videos and you'll have everything you need.

A 770 has plenty of power to run 1440p or 1600p. It won't max everything, but it will perform just fine on every game on the market. The difference between a 780ti and a 770 is roughly $350. If you have the cash for a 780ti, sure, go for it... if not, a 770 will work just fine.
