Wow no gaming, etc you could really go way cheaper than $1k even with multi display capabilities @@

For max 2 displays via IGP:
$455AR


> 2 displays : Just add a discrete Radeon class GPU (cheapo HD 4350/5450 perhaps) and enable Surround View in BIOS


Optional: 60GB Sandforce based SSD $120AR Free Ship

Batuchka's build (as always) looks pretty good. Areas of potential upgrade: the case, and a larger SSD. That's really about it. I'd consider a 5450 or 5670 for the video card, you could even go up to 3 monitors if you wanted to with the 5nnn series cards.
