Build my own pc

Specs: Windows Vista
I was referred here by a friend who said that there is a form that I can fill out to put down what I need my computer to do? Is this the place?

No form, but you can just tell us what you want a new pc to do and how much you have to spend to get there.

Video, Web Browsing, Downloading Pictures from Camera , Office work (excel, word, pp...nothing fancy). Simple but most important on my list is fast video download (or upload, I am not computer savvy) and web browsing.

thanks larry...I should have said..."I don't know the proper language." Here is what I need. I need a list of what I need to build a pc (case, mobo, type of video card, etc.) and then I need directions on how to build it. What I DO know is that I hate paying 1200 for a computer that has 1000 things I don't need on it and winds up breaking down because I don't know where or what a video card is. I want to learn....
