    I want to get the most bang for my buck so im deciding to build my own computer,
    budget 400-600

    I will be using it for SEO, no games or BS like that.
    It will be hooked up to a 46" 780p LCD

    Please recommend me my best options from newegg.com or similar site.

    I need a list of everything I need from top to bottom..

    Im hoping to get something like a core i7

    dont think the extreme system falls into the 400-600 dollar range

    try to snag a sandy bridge i5 core..which will be about 200 bucks
    LGA1155 socket mother board about 100bucks
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005
    power supply + cheap case = 100bucks
    4gigs ram = 50bucks
    1tb drive = 65bucks
    throw in a burner and you're set to go

    no time to make itemized list right now

    I would honestly wait a little bit until the latest Sandy Bridge CPU's are fixed. They're much better than the current offerings, and they are the same price too. However, there is currently a SATA issue going around, and they have stopped shipping them. So just wait a lil longer.

    For your price range just buy a tower from a big computer chain then add memery ane it should do everything you want to do.

    I think your 1st mistake is the 46" LCD. If you want to get some work done set up dual 20"-22" monitors. (there went your budget) A 1tb hard drive (make sure it's fast} and 8 gig of memory. A P4 with a fast hard drive and maxed memory will smoke a i3, i5 or a i7.
    I look a a MOB's number PCI slots, memory supported, Cpu's supported and integrated hardware. Build what works fast not the latest fad.

    If you might be running VPCs on it, look at 8Gb RAM, and consider if a fast SSHD is better bang for your buck instead of a larger, regular HD.
