With my recently bought computer, i realized that there was a color code for hooking up the wires. This takes all of the fun out of putting it together. Any moron (well, almost any moron) can now successfully hook together a computer. The code (for Dell at least, but it seems to be an industry standard sort of thing) is as follows:

Blue: monitor
Green: mouse
Purple: keyboard
Light Green: speakers
Red: microphone (or other comparable device)
Black: power supply
