Theres a builders guide sticky up top of the section, sections three and four will be of most use to you,
And as for cable management, I can try to help you,
Need to know what case and hardware you have though,
I'll link some pics later of what I expect you to achieve cablewise :-)
You will need zipties, a 3-4Mm drillbit and possibly sectioned afterwards :-p

Cables aren't something I like on view myself so it depends on how extreme you want to go,
cables neat and out of the way, including I.D.E. ribbon, P.i.t.a rating 6/10

Build log for that,

Cables out of the way, P.i.t.a. rating 8/10

And with a 5770 in there (other pics the old 9500GT (no power cable)

build log for that,

Invisicables, P.i.t.a. rating 0/10 (I actually enjoy hiding cables and hoses :p )


I've actually pulled the gfx cables through a touch more since that pic was taken so its neater now

so the question you have to answer is, how far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go? :p
