Additional Comments: My old Dell laptop I've had for years finaly quit on me unexpectantly this morning. Got some major Inventor assignments due for college soon and need a decent computer up and running. I had plans on saving up and building a pure gaming PC, which is why I have the case already, so I would like it to be good enough to handle what I've currently listed and be upgradable over time. My current budget is maxed at $600 and I'm having a hard time figuring out a good build for that price. I can get Windows 7 Professsional for free through a program at college. I will need a wirless card; I'm not allowed to run ethernet cables through my current residence. Any and all help/advice/builds will be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I missed any important information that will be needed, I think I covered as much as I can though. Thanks in advance!
