Default Here's the mission

You have 1500.00 USD. Build the best rig that you can within that price range. Bang for the buck is the best, as always, so 1500.00 doesn't have to be spent...

Just thought that it would be fun to see what everyone comes up with. I'll post mine once I have it.

Oh yeah, just for simplicity...no monitor, keyboard, etc. needed.
