Default First PC Build (under $3500)

I am building my first PC, but have been using computers for most of my 30 years, so I know what I want.


1. Speed
2. Video quality
3. Audio quality
4. Storage capacity

1. Home Theater
2. Storage of audio and video
3. Gaming

I have a second computer in the home and would like to efficiently network them together to share files, share a cable modem, and share a printer.

I was also curious if most people use a console controller with adaptor for pc gaming? Or what?

I am seeking advice as to things I might improve on, are inadequate, excessive, etc.
