PC Build For School/Engineering/Movies/Gaming

My laptop that I had for 3 years just died and now I need another computer. I built one back in high school, but that was quite a while ago. Anyways, this new one I am building is going to be used for school (I am an engineering student and will be using engineering programs), watching movies and TV shows, and for some gaming also. The emphasis will be on the first two. Anyways, I have a list here of components so far that I thought would be good.

If you guys could let me know what you think of those components and find me a good/affordable power supply and RAM to go with also I would appreciate it. Thanks!

  2. APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Will purchase parts as I can afford them over the course of the summer

    BUDGET RANGE: $1300

    SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Movies, Engineering/CAD software, Internet Surfing, Gaming, Word Processing, Photo Editing.

    PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Don't really need any advice on keyboards or mice

    PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

    PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel, Asus

    OVERCLOCKING: Maybe but not necessarily relient on this; SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe but probably not cause I'm not that hard core of a gamer

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The case doesn't have to be anything super fancy, just something cheap and simple. Like I said I really need help picking out the RAM and power supply.

    I have also updated my list to include the monitor I am interested in. Let me know what you think.

    I'm sure you will get a lot out of it - since u're not immediately buying now - and prices vary all the time.

    Well no I actually am planning on buying the motherboard, case and graphics card like now, and the rest when I can afford it in the next couple of weeks so I need advice soon.
