hey guys i was just throwing together some parts for a new build in the office. I really only will use this to look at some videos, store documents, and use the internet. I plan to use two monitors and be running multiple programs at the same time. Please make any changes you think that should be made but try to stay around 1000 dollars. Thanks you guys

I agree with Batuchka. In fact, an Athlon II X3 450 would be a perfectly suitable CPU for this office build.
I just sent this to a friend for an office PC:
Antec VSK-2000 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
I only gave this case 3/5 eggs and probably wouldn't buy another, but it does look the part of a professional, office PC.
ASRock 880GMH/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
$99.99 -$18.00 Instant $81.99
I've only had good results from ASRock.
SYBA PCI-Express 1-Port Parallel/Printer Card with Low Profile Bracket - RoHS Model SD-PEX10005
I just copied the wish list as-is; my friend needed this for a legacy device.

Solid, quiet, reliable PSU. Has been my first choice for years in this wattage range.
AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX450WFGMBOX
Very high bang/buck for office apps.
G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNS
Not much to say. I've never had to return a G.Skill stick, although I've probably bought less than 20.

Out of stock at Newegg now. Substitute a WD Black or a Seagate 7200.12.
LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer Black SATA Model iHAS424-98 LightScribe Support
Was only $18 at time of order.
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders - OEM
Edit: No aftermarket cooler needed. Stability is key for a business PC, so I did not overclock it or attempt a core unlock.
If you'd like to spend a little more, get another hard drive or two, and a GOOD UPS like an APC Smart Power (for true sine wave; or one of the new Cyberpower APFC series).
The 430W Antec Basiq got a mediocre review at HardwareSecrets; it's one of the few Antec PSUs I would not buy.
I chose Win7 Pro because of the business-centric features like networking (Home Premium can't join a domain) and Bitlocker drive encryption. For a home office though, Home Premium would be fine too.
