Can you reiterate what your needs are for this system? I know it's an HTPC build, but how much design and office will you be doing? If you are doing around-the-clock heavy editing you will need more than a A10 5800K. How much will you be doing? What kind of editing will you be doing? What is the resolution of all the monitors And are you going to use the 3 monitors, 2 monitors, 1 TV, or a mixture of the all?

Desktop for the office,just the tv and one monitor (I'll have to check on resolution ),all ms programs and mostly light cad,etc for my fab shop and plasma cam. All monitors and tv is 1080 will be getting rid of one monitor and keeping tv for wife to watch movies and monitor for work at the same time. Would it be easier just to build two pcs and bump right off the bat and forget about one .sorry for the retardism.

For your uses, I'd just go with this.

CPU: AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo:ASRock FM2A75M-DGS
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case: Actually, I saw this on sale for 40% off of $100, then it has a $30 rebate, so you pay $30 for a $100 gaming case - Antec DF-35
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W ($20 sale)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical Drive: MSI 24X DVD Burner
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB (On sale for 55%! Save $60!)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 64GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: $434

This is the lowest amount of money you pay for a build this decent. No, it's not going to make you breakfast and create world peace, but It will get the job you need done. But do realize that this build will go up about $120 when all of the sales stop (If they do)
