    Hi,

    I was trying to build my own PC for the first time and I'm looking for some advice. I will likely be buying from newegg.com- and I can't figure out what to buy.

    My system will be used primarily for data storage, but I definately want expandability.

    I need to get all the guts as well as a case and power supply.

    I am looking for a simple system, but I am a quick learner and want something that I can soup up later.

    I will be using sound editing and video editing occasionally but I'm not quite looking for gamer quality (from what i've read, a lot of systems are judged by gaming ability and I don't game on PC at all)

    I would appreciate any advice, and I believe my AIM screen name is on my profile so I don't mind help at any time.

    I prefer an Intel based system but I can be persuded otherwise.

    Once again thanks,

    Ozzie

    P.S. I would like to be able to rip DVD's and keep it under 1000-----software recomendations would also be greatly appreciated.

    1st, your thread title is inappropriate.

    2nd, for storage, would you want RAID1?
