Building a computer is NOT like putting together an IKEA cabinet. You don't walk into a computer store and buy a box with all parts and instructions for installing them. You buy separate parts, usually from separate places, and carefully choose which pieces you want. And there's no guarantee the parts you buy will work together - that's up to you. Comparing it to IKEA is a huge over-simplification.
