For years I kept telling myself that I would just build my own pc and finally decided to do so. Unfortunately after reading many articles and doing what research I could I realized that I am out of my area of expertise when it comes to picking parts, ensuring there are no compatibility issues and just how much I need to spend.
I want to keep the cost down as much as possible while still leaving room for future upgrades. (I'm a poor college student so I need some bang for my buck :P) I intend to use the computer for music, video, school, and the occasional game (mostly WoW).
The only real preference I have is that I do not want to go below my current processor, everything else wide open to suggestions and comments.
