New System Question

Hi guys! I am building a computer NOT for gaming, but for my info security class. The focus of the build is on running multiple OS's and applications at once to run penetration (hacking) tests. I'm assuming I need A LOT of memory and a huge hard drive. Where do I start? the budget for the entire build needs to be 1000 or less. Any help or direction would help!]
