Exclamation Computer build -- AU$1000 -- engineering and some gaming use

I have $1000 (Australian currency - I'm in Aus) to spend on a computer.

I am looking to build from scratch rather than buy a pre-made one and need some assistance.

Some features I would like include:
  • can handle heavy engineering programs
  • at least 3GB ram
  • 2 hard drives (one for backup / document file storage)
  • usb 3.0
  • appropriate hardware for broadband connection and/or maybe wireless internet connection
  • dvd/rw and cd/rw drives
  • monitor at least 22 inch
  • case preferably black in colour
  • will need some money left over for keyboard, mouse, speakers

Any help is much appreciated.

UPDATE: I do not need an operating system. Have it already.
