Alright, after a few days of researching and reading, I put together what I think is a good rig around the amount of money I'm looking to spend:




Hard drive:

Motherboard: ?

Case: ?

Power supply: ?

As you can see, I still need suggestions on the motherboard, case, and power supply that would work well with these components. Also hopefully I didn't overlook anything. If I did, let me know. Thanks!

If you're going to pay that much, you might as well add a 120GB+ SSD and install the OS and apps on it, in addition to the 1TB hard drive. You will thank me later.
