I have made quite a bit of progress. I have finally finished my computer. All put together and I'm writing this post from it. Let me give you list of my specs for some of you techy folks:
GPU: GeForce GTX 760 $200 (on sale from $250)
CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor $120
MEMORY: 8GB DDR3
Thats really all the important stuff, not much else to explain. 1 TB hard drive 7200 RPM, Windows 8.1 OS, monitor, mouse and keyboard, plus headphones etc.
All in all the total cost came to around $650-$700, and I am extremely pleased with my product. Can do a wide range of things from doing school work, to streaming HD video, to playing the latest games at highest settings.

I've spent a lot of time researching specs and how to build the computer. Expect to finish the first part (building the computer) by the beginning of November give or take some time depending on sales or a change in decision that I've made. Looking forward to starting the actual build and not just saving up. I'm very impatient.
