I am tempted to say that a 680i may not be a good choice for a first time builder. There are a LOT of settings in the BIOS - at least on the eVGA board.
If you are building it for gaming, you will probably want to overclock. If so, look for a general overclocking guide. Then look specifically for a 680i overclocking guide. This will save you a lot of time. Don't ask me how I know this.
