Actually, try to find a local, smart computer company that will assist you. I had some great experiences with people at some local companies.

If I wasn't at work I would configure you one, but I sure someone will.

Do you need everything for $1200 (ie monitor, keyboard etc)? Or just the box itself?

Just the box should cost around $1200. I already have the keyboard, mouse, and monitor ready.

Hard drive space isn't important to me, so around 80 GB should be enough. Also, the soundcard shouldn't be too great (read: shouldn't cost a lot), since I'm not too concerned about the quality of the audio.

My local computer store owner said a 2 GHz anything is good enough for anything I would ever need.

Umm... no.

No... I mean like a single person who build s computers. Thats how I learned to build them, from one guy. He even fixed my previous one for free multiple times.

Sorry for the screen stretch. I am at work and only have Paint.

So, just take that list, and put it in exactly like that to get Monarch to build a sweet computer.
