So I'm looking to build a new computer, and its my first too. I have taken apart and rebuilt several factory built computers before, so i do have some basic sense and knowledge behind hardware and their workings, but I'm the first to admit, i have no idea what to put into a new computer. So, some help would be great.
Budget - $500 - $700 USD
Usage - Gaming (Starcraft 2, and a couple free downloadable games), movie watching, and programming (both web and computer applications)
HDD - At-least 1 TB (love movies)
Additionally, I have a decent monitor (planning on hooking it up to my TV, so an HDMI port would be great), keyboard and mouse, so don't include them in the budget :]
Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any help given.
