Default Hey guys - wanna go nuts?

Alright here's the deal.

I've scrounged up 3500.00 to build a new computer- I've been looking at sites for parts and what not and I"ve come to a conclusion: let the other people do it for me!

THe mission!

Build a desktop PC costing up to 2800.00

And find me a monitor worth up to 700.00 - you can also change those around if you want - but go all out and help me out here - AMD or Intel - I'll decide in the end what I really want.

Thanks dudes!

Yes that's all I need, preferably wireless keyboard & mouse. If it dos make any difference - I'd like a plain case. Mid or full tower, I'm not that picky - white or black, y'know whatever but I don't want something premodded (I'm doing custom mods)

SO here's what I need:

PC
Monitor
Keyboard & Mouse
Speakers

The only thing that I won't compromise on is the sound card - I do need a SB Audigy 2 Platinum or something with a front panel - I have 6000.00 to spend on the whole thing - 3500.00 for computer & monitor, and I'm purchasing a mixing console and some other things. I have a color laser printer so a printer isn't needed - hope I've said that clearly enough!
