New system build for 1300

Suggestions on a new rig please. My current one is so outdated, i can't even play hd videos without them being choppy. It crashes all the time, and trying to convert a mkv file to dvd takes literally 2+ hours.
Please keep in mind a HIGH END Video card is NOT needed I am NOT a gamer.

Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: December 20th

Budget Range: (e.g.: 300-400) 1300

System Usage from Most to Least Important: converting and burning movies, avg internet surfing.

Are you buying a monitor: NO

Parts to Upgrade: case, mobo, cpu, ram, video card, ssd, burner, psu

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tiger

Location: Pittsburgh, Pa

Parts Preferences: Intel

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Your Monitor Resolution: multiple monitor setup in near future

Additional Comments: My House gets extremely hot in the summer, interested in a case that will provide enough cooling, also air cooling or water cooling system that will do the job as well.

Again i Do NOT need a high end graphics card.
Thank you in advance

    Even this might be to much considering you might not use a lot of space

    when you get to your mutli monitor setup spend some money to get a 7770 or a 7850

    would go for this
  2. thank you for the suggestion. saving basically half my budget is awesome. I'm gussing since no one else has responded that everyone is signing off on this build. so thanks again =)
  3. Yeah, it's pretty good.
