The higher the better.

Additional Comments: (e.g.: Need to have a window and lots of bling, I would like a quiet PC)

My last computer is over 5 years, and I am thinking about building a smaller one. (Mini-ITX)

Quiet is good. Better to have builtin wifi receiver!

I don't play games, editing movies, music etc. Main usage will be programming and watching movies. I do a lot of programming in data analysis, simulations etc, and it's really great if I don't need to crash many times in order to process large amount of data.

Is this a possible project?

Thanks everyone!

how about amd v. intel, I have been using intel cpu for years, with not many experience(but mostly bad) for amd.
I'd definitely go with at least 8gb, or even 16gb ram for sure! Thanks!
