I've built a rig in the past, but the last desktop was about 4 years ago. My graphics card died and the desktop collected dust as I wasn't gaming for a while.
I'm looking for a new build for gaming and to record music. I would like to incorporate a sound card. Speakers are not necessary (I'll be using Rockit-8's that I use w/ Line 6 HD 500 for guitar).
The only possible part that I would use from the last build is my case - Antec 900. If there is a much better case out there these days I'd consider it or if mobo and cards make it a tight fit. Need new OS - win 7.
Budget of $1500. I suppose it is desirable to have a quiet rig for recording (if using mics) but is that even possible with a decent gaming rig? Anyone have experience with this?
If anyone out there can suggest a build I'd appreciate it!

Thanks for responding... I should have mentioned I don't need a monitor or any peripherals. My Keyboard is a G15 so from what I read is that USB 3 might not work so well, so if I can use the old Antec 900 the front USB's will be 2.0... but I'd rather have the keyboard plugged in the back in which case I may need an adapter for usb 3 to 2 I assume if new mobo is all usb 3?
I've heard good things about SSDs. I was thinking SSD for boot drive and programs, 7200 rpm HDD for data? This sound right?
