Help with New Build

Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP

Budget Range: 400-500 Before / After Rebates... cheaper the better low budget really.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Really for just surfing the internet..

Parts Not Required: Just hardware computer components nothing like mouse keyboard ect. Whole computer tho.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Parts Preferences: by brand or type No preference.

Overclocking: Preferably no

Additional Comments: Overall I'm looking for a semi-low budget computer, just for surfing the net opening up programs simultaneously as fast as possible. Also, would like to have it ATLEAST up gradable to hook up 3 monitors to the system if not right now. Appreciate all the help. Something where you could jump between monitors, doesn't need to happen right now but would like it available easy enough in the future. Also, just want it to run quick/fast for net and multiple programs for a cpl years! Lol :p thanks again.
