Default Need help

I think its about time for me to get a new computer and i ready to start the build, thing is i dont know where to start. I download tons of music and movies. so i need a lot of space and speed. I dont really play games but i would like to be able to if i was in the mood. Last but not least i like to play around with autocad every once in a while also. I want to keep it under $1100 is possible. thanks in advance

What country are you purchasing in, and are you cannibalizing any parts from your current rig or doing a clean build?

Heres a link for the OS Its 80 dollars after rebate Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD, English at TigerDirect.com So you would save 20 dollars if the rebate comes

And if you want a cpu cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134

for the 600-700 range the 100 dollar case will make it hard so i went with a cheaper case but its still a good one ^^

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204 cd drive

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119233 case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145299 hdd

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157280 mobo

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150560 gpu

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341022 psu

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231275 ram

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103995 cpu

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116986 os

689.91

and if you had to be at the 600 mark remove the video card and mobo and use a mobo like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128440 has onboard video and puts you at 569.92
