$3302 is a complete overkill which will be outdated in 2 years (as it in two years, you'll be able to buy all that for 1500).

First it sounds like you want this PC only to connect to the internet.

That Titan itself is completely unneccesary at that price.

Hahaha ok understand you want to connect to the internet? Theres 2 way lan and wifi. If your router is right next to your computer go with lan. Just buy an ethernet cable and connect the cable to the router or modem. Next if your router isnt near your computer you need to get a wifi card. A great wifi card I know of you can find here http://goo.gl/LU656 of that card is to expensive I can find a cheaper one for you. Hope this helped! Let me know your thoughts.
