Exclamation Totally Confused

Im not sure if this counts as a high end pc but im building a new pc that i want to cost under 1,000. Ive been brosing tiger direct and all i found so far was te case. I dont do gaming now but i want to be able to, i also want good sound and graphics so i can run suse xgl. i dont know weather to get sata or ata (is that it) or intel or amd, or to buy the cpu with the motherboard. Please help and be aware that it has be to under 1000 but i already have the cd drives, i need two hds (one for tons of music and video) and one for mutible os's (xp pro, suse xgl, maybe ubuntu) so please help me pick out the perfect motherboard,cpu,sound and graphics card, and right hdds.
Thanks

If you can use newegg go for it, generally lower prices.
