For at least four years now, I’ve been meaning to write a series of blog posts about building your own PC. Luckily, Jeff Atwood has done such a ridiculously great job of it that I don’t have to.

Some additional links:

TechBargains is useful for finding great deals–I’ve found many a “free after rebate” component thanks to TB. To get the best deals, you need to monitor it on an ongoing basis, not just search it when you’re ready to buy.

AnandTech is the best place to check out reviews of components, and for general PC hardware news.

As Jeff mentioned, Silent PC Review is the place to start if you’re trying to pick quiet components. The articles have gotten a little outdated but the forums are a great resource.

NewEgg and ZipZoomFly are my two default choices for ordering parts.
