Anti-static wrist bands are my top advice to anyone who's new-ish to PC building and customization.

It's a good thing to invest in

Try not to build up static charge, avoid this by frequently tapping the pc case to prevent shock to parts. Don't force any of the parts in either, make sure they're aligned and placed in good. Other than that refer to the manual for more help.

I would just prefer the case, but power supply should be fine though
