    I built my first when I was 14, I didn't have your budget though. I had to fund it all myself only like $400...that's like the price of your processor. You have no idea what I would of given to have your kind of budget, I hope you know how lucky you are.

    did you check to make sure that both motherboard power connectors are in?
    to you connect the power button to the motherboard properly?
    and guy you spent way to much on your mobo

    my best guess is that he didn't plug the power button in right because he doesn't even know which ones the power button

    it would be in your best interest to learn sooner or later. best bet is to find a friend or relative who can walk you through your first build. that way simple but frustrating steps, like hooking up individual lines into a set of pins for hdd/pwr leds, fan(s), power and reset switch is easily explained...other than that, just make sure the power is NEVER connected until everything is hooked up. for added safety and since your parents are concerned cause of your age, put the cover back on whenever you plug the power in, even if you have to take it back off a few times to get everything sorted out.
