Well this summer I want to build a computer. Anyways I tried figuring out parts myself, but it makes me head spin(probably not good sign, but I'll stick with this attempt anyways) I need absolutely everything: monitor, keyboard and mouse, the parts etc. which is why I didn't just look at another topic since generally they don't need everything.

BUDGET RANGE: $1000 maybe a bit over but not much
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Internet, Movies, and general use it will be my primary system. So it needs to be well balanced

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: I need everything

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I hear newegg is good so I guess that

PARTS PREFERENCES: Whatever is goos

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Not sure. you decide what is best

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Quiet, and is set for the future( I don't want to have to completely rebuild in a year)
