Additional Comments: For the PC Case, I really want a side window and something not so fancy, something normal, I've been thinking of a Cooler Master 430, But if you guys have something better please tell me! It should be mini-mid tower case.
There's overall a blue theme with motherboard, ram, psu, and case there. u could spruce it up with different types of fans, led or not etc.
I've never helped someone with a build on forums before so there's my first attempt. There's some rebates and/or a freebie or two in the mix. The cpu lets you hit the ground running but for more you could go up to the 2500k. I picked the core i3 b/c u said budget and you could get away with the stock heatsink / fan probably... which saves some more. Once you factor in what rebates are available, the prices for graphics cards are all pretty close so you can up or down the scale as you see fit. Enjoy HD content with a 1920x1080 monitor and play games at that res with lowered details or play at 1680x1050 and enjoy higher quality settings, whichever you prefer.
I'm looking at my own build around a core i3 2105... i think i finally decided anyway... light gaming, media consumption, networked storage.
