    Ok, I need more than help, I need the whole thing. I want to build a computer that will be decent for 4 years of school but that I can use for light computer games (mainly something like flight simulation or something, but nothing major).

    I need everything, case, psu, processor, monitor, etc, etc, etc...everything. The primary goal for this computer will be for schoolwork, internet, music management, and TV use (DVR type stuff) but everything needs to last for 4 years.

    Budget is about 1000-1200. Thus far, I think I would like a widescreen monitor, raptor drive (for faster loading) and probably an e6300 processor. Any tips or suggestions on where to buy, what to wait for, or anything. I realize it's an open-ended question, but any help is appreciated
