Approximate Purchase Date: Within a week.
Budget Range: ~$2000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming, watching movies, surfing the net
Parts Not Required: mouse, sound card (creative x-fi hd usb), headphones (have good sennheiser headphones), monitor (isymphony 19" led lcd 1366 x 768)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg
Country of Origin: U.S.
Parts Preferences:
Overclocking: No
SLI or Crossfire: N/A
Monitor Resolution: Up to 2560x1600. I plan to get around with this build and to be hooking up to lots of different monitors.

Additional Comments: I am in the military, move around a lot, and am usually allotted a pretty limited amount of space. I am looking to build something light and small and that packs a powerful punch. Basically I want a gaming PC that is console-sized or smaller that is easy to pack up and store/hide and that I can easily grab and hook up to different displays like your typical console. I also want it to be on the quieter side and future proof (this is why I chose the 3gb gtx 580 and a fanless cpu cooler-which silverstone actually recommends for the case).

Here is what I have so far:

You should be getting a SataIII SSD.
- Intel 510 if you want to go intel.
- Crucial M4 possibly, very similar to the intel drive
- OCZ Vertex 3 or a bunch of the other Sandforce based drives.

Another possibility for case would be Silverstone Fortress FT03.
Check it out, it's a little bit funky but it allows use of MicroATX mobos.
