This. Copied it off of some other website(tomshardware). It looks good, the cpu is almost much better than anything amd brings out. 8 gb is enough I think, you don't do any professional video or photo editing I guess? Or would you prefer a small computer?

This is the computer I would buy if I were you. ( I looked this all up on newegg.) Click on the links, check the reviews if you want. I also don't know if you want a blu-ray player?

I built this computer a few years ago and its still good enough to run most games on High settings, compose and design art using the latest adobe programs and watching anime...although my TV is only 720p but that is fine with me. I agree with above that micro atx....gawd no and never do integrated vid cards.

This build probably has a few more years left on it before a major upgrade is needed.....I could probably use more ram though.

To be honest, you really don't need to pay that much for a fast computer...everything is so fast now that unless you do graphic design or 3d stuff you will never use all the capability of your computer. I have a pretty good budget rig and never had problem and I paid 1100$ for it including shipping.

Recently I just built a PC for my dad, it cost me about 600$ and it's a freaking bomb. i3 3rd gen @ 3.3Ghz is really fast, RAM is just cheap, good mobo, a graphic card if you need one, I didn't put one in my dad's computer since he only does work on his computer, but I was amaze by the mother board graphic power.
I think if you want to stream, make sure you have a good connection
