Re: Help me build a system. New to buidling.
My suggestion? Go to newegg, filter the products you need by price, and sort them by customer ratings. Pick and choose what products you think will work for you put them on a public wishlist and show your lineup to us and we will critique it. It is really hard to configure an entire system for a complete stranger based on a single post, imo. Even if you live outside the US, newegg is a great place to start. They have a huge amount of products and an even bigger amount of customers that give great reviews. Also, newegg has great detailed buying guides to show what to look for in the product. This whole process will take some time.
