Best build for under $1500 All inclusive

I already have a thread up asking about an AMD build but I was interested to know what would be available for under $1500 if any parts were allowed. The components must be included in the price as I am looking to order and put it all together without needing to buy anything else.

Approximate Purchase Date: (before May 2012)

Budget Range: (e.g.: $1500) After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: (e.g.: gaming/workstation, surfing the internet, watching movies)

Parts Not Required: N/A (brand new build from scratch)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: No preference

Overclocking: Maybe later as required (not super important)

SLI or Crossfire:Maybe as an upgrade in the future

Monitor Resolution: (e.g.: at least 1280x1024, 25" )

Additional Comments: Very quiet very discreet computer (thinking a lian li case no lights or anything), need everything including: keys, mouse, sound.

Thanks in advance
