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.
