I said "putting together" in my last because "creating" or "building" makes the process sounds more complicated than it actually is. The first step is to get to know the basic components that go into the computer case. They are:

the computer case image
the power supply unit (PSU) image
the hard drive (HDD / HD) image
the motherboard image
-- the processor (CPU) image
-- the processor's heatsink intel's stock POS heatsink & after market heatsink (better)
-- the memory (RAM) ugly sticks that look like this
-- the video card (GPU) image & GPUs come in many fancy designs and are sometimes called graphics cards

that's the hardware in a basic complete computer. each component is easily recognizable, so you won't confuse a PSU with the processor's heatsink.

Test You Understanding: have a look at this picture and see if you can identify the eight components listed above. (You won't be able to see the processor (CPU) because the heatsink is sitting on top of it.)
