Additional Comments: Just need help picking out basic pc parts for this work computer. I have built a few before, but always gaming computers and I tend to go overboard. I just need this pc to do the small task I need it to do and nothing more.
Yes I know. Doesn't have to be the cheapest possible but the lower the better. With monitor and keyboard/mouse.
I know you said $1000, but this will cost around $500 and perform just as good. I'd actually replace the HDD with an SSD, but that's it. Add the monitor and keyboard/mouse of your choice. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1EDPx
