Place the mobo on a firm surface with some cardboard under the mobo. Then install the CPU and the heatsink. Install all RAM modules, Video card, PCI cards. After this you may install the mobo inside the case.

Here is a nice guide: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/274745-31-step-step-g...

Good luck!

Thank you! It is a lot of fun building your own PC. Please follow basic things like proper anti-static grounding before touching anything. Enjoy!
