SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: file storage, watching movies, gaming, web surfing

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg is preffered, but if another website is available that is also legit and cheaper for the same part then it's welcome ^^

PARTS PREFERENCES: antec p182, intel processor


MONITOR RESOLUTION: atleaast 1680x1050

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: i would like to have at least 2TB of space in RAID0, capability to play HD files, no need for blu-ray and i am looking for a quality computer that will last me around 5 years that is good for multitasking with 2 monitors.

hopefully ~1500$ is enough for this build, if not i will go to 2000 max.
