I'm looking to build a desktop that will fit in my TV stand (horizontal or cube)
-Will be used for gaming and 3D modeling/ Photoshop

CPU: Intel
Mobo: Sufficient to work for a few years of upgrades
Graphics: NVidia
RAM: 2-4GB (can always add more)
HD: 60-80GB
Video Out: to 720p Sony Bravia 32"

I'm looking to do wireless keyboard, mouse and internet

Haven't kept up to date on what components are good for a couple years so need ALOT of help.
Price range $800-$1200, the cheaper the better obviously, upgrades can be made once I have the money.

Wow. Small F3 & WD Black harddisks are sold out. They're the most popular. I found only 1TB Black.

You can pick out wireless keyb/mouse.

Things to note: the psu has PCI-Express Connectors 1 x 6-Pin, 1 x 6+2-Pin, and the gpu requires 2 x 6-pin. It's easy. Split the 6+2 pin into half. Plug the 6-pin in the gpu and the other 6-pin too. Don't confuse 6+2 PCI-E with 2x4 CPU. They're labelled differently. Yes, the mobo supports the cpu out of the box. I checked.

If the total is too high, you can drop 8 gigs ram to 4 gigs. Do you have Windows 7? If not, get the 64bit.
