Additional comments: Was looking at building a computer a few months ago for a budget of over $2000 but figured it was a little excessive for what id be using it for..
I do however might possibly need a good wireless network adapter due to the current house can only run on wireless not wired so the best connection possible would help.

can push budget to 1500 with OS and monitor..
