Hey guys,

I'm in the market for a PC, and wanted to try my hand at building one. I would like to spend less than $1000. I generally buy the best PC I can afford and use it until it dies on me (my current one has lasted about 7 years). I would love to be able to play Civ 5 on it, but that is pretty much all I plan on doing gaming wise. Otherwise, I will use it to download a bunch of stuff, store and edit photos/videos, email, music, etc. Any advice on a build that will last me quite awhile before I need to upgrade again? Thanks in advance for all of your help!
