Alright so heres what I got;


Part's not required:

Monitor I have a 17" inch flatscreen tv with VGA which will do, not to mention a 13" inch acer monitor

For mouse/keyboards/speakers ill get them from old computers or local stores.

Country of Origin:

Canada


_______________________________________________________________________________________

Requirements:


This will be my first build, and I need a couple things for sure.

My first request is that you incorporate an AMD 3.2 x4 Processor, at least 4GB of ram if more can be added even better.

Im looking for a TB of space.

A decent graphics card, but not something for serious gaming. Enough for HD videos, blu ray, and maybe a little amateur gaming.

Professional Sound Card, seeing as will be making some music.

Well cooled, and fancy case would be nice, choose the I could care less for the PSU as long as its stable, enough to support the system, and is by a reliable brand seeing as it is one of the most import parts to the PC.

lastly any drive with blu ray CD/DVD/lightscribe support

Any help is very appreciated :D

OS:

Ill be using Windows 7 which I already have at my disposal.

Side Notes **

This computer will be purchased in roughly 3 - 4 weeks.

I prefer newegg/tiger direct/amazon.

I would like if it could be under budget, but slightly over isn't a problem. Combos/rebates/ are additional bonuses.



Thank you very much in advance.

:D

Now, I'm a little rusty on the sound cards for recording (The last good one I know is the M-Audio Audiophile 2496, see below) you should ask that on the audio section of this forum or on some dedicated audio forum.
