Building a computer

I want to buy all my computer pieces myself and build it. I've done this before, with a lot of research and luck, I managed to get it done. That desktop stopped working ~3 months after I had it built though.

I'm pretty sure it's because of my lack of professional guidance. I'm a long time lurker, and now I've registered, seeking someone's help in helping me choose the right pieces to get my PC working properly.

I have plenty of computer knowledge (software-wise, Computer Science major), however I lack the hardware knowledge necessary for my project. I want to learn as much about PC parts and how they're compatible with one another, etc.

Anyone care to help me through from now until I'm finished building my PC?

I need a mentor, thanks.

Edit: As you might've guessed I have basic knowledge of computer parts. I just get lost when it comes to compatibility and specific terms like the 3 #s on RAM latency, etc.
