Hey guys, I'm looking to build a new computer which will mostly be used for engineering applications (Solidworks, Autocad, etc.). I plan to put all my music and videos on this computer as well (I think I want a 1TB hard drive). I will install a basic Microsoft office package, mostly for using word, excel, powerpoint, outlook, and access. The only games I really ever play are minecraft and civilization. I also will use this computer for skype and internet browsing. I'm kinda planning to use it as an all purpose computer. If I could have an hdmi port, that would be great. I would like to be able to burn blue rays in addition to DVD's and CD's.

I already have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speaker system which just uses a regular circular audio output that you can plug into an mp3 player.

I'm hoping to keep the build as inexpensive as I can, but I'm willing to spend $1000 US if I need to. The less expensive, the better though.

Oh, and I'm planning on running Windows 7.

This is what I have found right now, but I really don't know what I'm doing, so any help you guys could give would be really appreciated! Thanks guys!

hhmmmm that build looks slightly familiar
where did that rosewell psu come from?!?
and whats up with that sandy i7? an ivy bridge cpu will work better than a sandy for rendering . . . jesus that build got so violated.

dude stop running around asking for options from different places/threads; too many cooks spoil the pot.
