|Budget: $1,000 +/-$200 (for future-proofing)|
Requests: Gaming capabilities for BF3/Skyrim/etc
Good for 5.1 Surround sound speaker system (previously bought Logitec hand-me-down to this build) and 37" Monitor
Possible integration with iOS devices for movie/music control
Enough harddrive space to fit a Steam Library and local content
Rationale: I have a MBP but want to switch to a PC desktop. I want to be able to use my 37" LCD as a monitor and I would like to use my 5.1 surround sound computer speakers. I appreciate any suggestions as I would like to do this build using my own two hands but worry that I'll pick incompatible parts or choose the wrong power supply.
Thank you all!
