[New Build] Main Home PC for $700+

Approximate Purchase Date: When I get my tax refund - 2-3 weeks from now.

Budget Range: 700-1000 (closer to 700 would be better)

System Usage from Most to Least Important:

1. This will be my main PC for work. (WebDev, photoshop, ect)
2. Will function as a webserver and will be on for long periods of time.
3. Watching HD movies/TV
4. Will have 4 external HD's connecting via usb hub that serve media files from Plex Media Server to 2 other PC's which are connected to TV's. Needs to be able to transcode 1080p/720p HD video to them.
5. Possibly some video encoding in the future.
6. Light gaming.

Parts Not Required: Mouse, Speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tigerdirect, amazon, eBay (anything really as long as price is right)

Country: Ohio, USA 43081

Parts Preferences: Intel CPU / Nice clean monitor.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: I want this to be a good computer I can use for the next 2-3 years. Would like a nice sized case so assembly is easier and room to add multiple HD's in the future. Also I would like it to be somewhat fast. Needs to have wireless internet ability.
