Hey, I'm going to be putting together a PC for my brother pretty soon. I'd like to stay under $1000, including an LCD, hopefully 17". Keyboard/mouse/speakers. Speakers are 2.1 and good sounding. At least 1280x1024 res on LCD. And keyboard is standard style, nothing fancy, mouse is optical. Color scheme is black/silver or just black. I want a 939 Athlon with PCI-E. A good sort of desk case and name brand PS. Not like a gamers case or fancy light up. Don't even really want a side window. Just a classy case is all, and about 18" tall. 17" is getting short. It's not a gamers PC so video doesn't need to be top knotch. But they will do video editing so it needs at least a 120gb HDD or 160gb is better. And front firewire on the case. And top it off with a single DVD burner and floppy. So what do you think? I don't need direct links to parts, I shop at newegg and zipzoomfly. But offhand why don't you list your fav parts, I'll look them up myself. Or if you recently bought a part and really like it, post your comments. Again, I don't need top of the line, just good, long lasting, hard working components. Thanks.
