Default New Build Challenge

Ok so it has come to my attention that CyberPowerPc is a ripoff and I should just build my own computer. This presents a challenge to me because I'm not sure what I should get. I need everything except disk drives.

Here's the challenge (maybe, maybe not o_O)

It needs to have a wireless card, or seperate usb wireless connector
and.. it needs to be under 750...

Final specification.. I really, really want this processor..

If you can do all this for me, your my hero :P

*** EDIT ****
This system would primarily be used for gaming / watching hd videos

I'm sure peeps will do this for you. 750 can do a lot

Do you need a monitor or maybe other peripherals
Do you need an operating system

I'm going to stick with my moniter. I'll buy a new moniter soon, unless it can be including in 750. I plan to buy windows 7, so its actually 850ish, but im saying 750 just for computer.. and if people can include moniter, WONDERFUL!

I personally like this rig for 750. See what others think. I assumed you have optical drives you could transfer since you have a monitor as well.

I would stretch and get a 5770 or a 5750. DX11 support.

I agree. You could definitely get this HDD, same quality but half the space. Still 500gb is not bad. lol. It'll save you $40. Enough to upgrade to the 5770

EDIT Possibly this 5770. It's a new edition from Asus. Same quality as the rest but cheaper.

Vapor X 5770 if overclocking is in the question. They hit 1000 MHz core like nothing.

Only 890GX chipset right now. It's very limited.

Might I suggest a SCSI drive?
