Well sir I am at your disposal, I need to know some specifics!

Budget?

What resolution is your monitor?

Do you need an OS?

What components do you have left over from your old build that you plan to re-use? (mouse, keyboard, case, monitor, hard drive, etc etc)

So does that mean that the monitor and OS are excluded from your budget of 1500 dollars?
