Build Me A Computer

Okay. I know this has been done before but, since these times they are a changin' and new stuff is coming out every day.....

build me a computer.

I want to build a PC myself. I'm looking for recommendations on what parts to use? Recommendations on everything. Brand names and model numbers.

What do you have? Do you like it? What do you wish you had?

Good deal links are appreciated.

Everything from the mouse pad to the processor.

Thanks.

Budget is big, and also what you plan on doing with it (just surfing/word processing or games or video editing)

I've built/upgraded three computers of the past month, and I always recommend the cheapest route (except for gamers). If you go the cheaper route, you can get a decent computer which will last 2,3 years and then easily buy another without a problem.

Budget ~$1000.00

I will be using it for web surfing, word processing and graphic design. It must be able to comfortably run photshop, illustrator, painter, etc.

But yes. Cheaper is better. Id like to upgrade every few years.
