"I've fallen over and I can't get up"
Start with the mainboard (the biggest one). I really hope you haven't taken the cooler and CPU off this...
Try to work out how it fits in the case and see if you can get it screwed in. The ports & sockets should help you align this.
Do the same with the power-supply, then find where the power supply connects to the board. Now it gets tricky, if you pulled off all the switch connections you won't know how to power it up...
Read the mainboard for a model / part number printed on it in big letters and Google it, in conjunction with the word "manual"
Once you've got that far reply to one of these comments.

Oy, why would you do that? Nah, anyway. How "apart" is it? Completely? As in every circuit board has but unhooked and separated and whatnot? Or just you opened the case and maybe remove a few things like a video card or sound card?

While I cannot help with this particular system I do have some words of advice. Do you own a camera? Whether it be still or video? Next time you take on a project such as this take pictures with each step. This way if you get tired, stop, or forget you can just go through your pictures and re-assemble your project. Do you have any photos of the system currently apart?
