TC, I would make a new topic stating that you need a desktop with a hard cap of $1400. List the things you need like OS and whatever and any parts you're considering. You'll probably end up with a completely different build. You should be ready to pull the trigger right away because prices change daily and what was $1390 today, may be $1475 tomorrow. If Shub, Snuckie7, or gastaman give you advice, you should take it.
*shrugs* Okay, let's see how this turns out.
