APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Hopefully within 3 days as I am without a computer!
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Mostly internet/school work, music, a little gaming.
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Monitor, optical drive, keyboard, mouse
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg is good but I'm open to anything.
PARTS PREFERENCES: not experienced enough to have a strong preference for any components.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'd like a quiet PC with a small and sleek nice looking case. I'd like a good soundcard and a videocard good enough to run something like Dragon Age: Origins on medium settings would be nice, but gaming IS NOT a priority. It's just important that the computer is very quick and responsive when multitasking with many non-intensive applications for the most part.
This will be my first time building my own machine so any tips would be good. It IS important that all my parts come from the same place because I need this computer soon. I was looking at some bundles on Newegg but I'm not sure if they're really a good deal or not.
