Looking to build a PC which will be used for Matlab (large data sets) and 3D CAD design (SolidWorks, Inventor) as the most demanding tasks. Apart from this will do a large number of Office-type applications simultaneously. Looking for something very reliable in the range of $1000 without a monitor and OS. Thank you all!

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within a month
BUDGET RANGE: 1000 After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Matlab, 3D CAD, Office work

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: monitor and OS

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES:none

OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: At least 1280X1024

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: would like a rock-solid build, not necessarily the latest and greatest
