HELP!! Okay, I am fairly well versed in computer & electronics jargon, but I have never been brave enough to build my own computer. I always had to buy from BestBuy or Walmart because, well, I was an idiot. Now, I am working off a 6-year-old HP desktop with an AMD dual core SLOW bargain computer. It's been slow since the day I set 'er up but was computer illiterate and settled. So now I came into a modest stack of cash and I'm going to get what I want instead of what I can afford. I have decided that my ideal computer will have an Intel i7 3770K CPU, run Windows 7 64-bit (not Windows 8!), 480GB SSD complimented with a 2TB HDD, and have 2 monitors. I will be using my computer for e-mail, word processing, school (needs to get me through another year of university and 3 years of law school), Photoshop, and watching movies. I don't play games but I need a strong machine for some demanding mapping programs. I want my computer to be lightning fast! My budget is modest. I want to spend about $2,000... but that has to include 2 monitors and a laser printer (I already know which of these I am getting). So, my real budget is about $1,400 for the computer and software. Is this unreasonable? What motherboard is a good compliment for the i7 3770k? What's a good video card that will allow me to set up the two monitors and let me watch a Blu-ray on one monitor and type an essay on the other? Is there a need to go with 32 gigs of RAM or would 16 (or even less) suit my needs? How about cases and power supplies? I could care less about looks; I care about function (I don't need a fancy light show or a window). HELP PLEASE!!! Tell me what would be a great machine for my needs. Oh, and what website or supplier in the USA is good for reliable merchandise? I've heard good and bad things about newegg and tiger direct. Maybe I should edit my opening paragraph... maybe I'm not as versed as I think I am. Anybody that can help me, I really appreciate it.
